Premalatha’s brother Sudeesh is also being targeted by the cadres

After the abysmal loss in the Assembly elections, many DMDK functionaries are unhappy with party leader Vijayakant’s wife Premalatha for shutting doors on DMK and are asking the actor to bring his younger son Shanmuga Pandian in an attempt to keep Premalatha out of party affairs.

Vijayakant has been reviewing the party’s drubbing in the Vanniyar belt for the last one week. The DMDK occupied the third place in only eight seats out of the 100 seats in north Tamil Nadu comprising 10 districts - Chennai, Tiruvallur, Kancheepuram, Vellore, Krishnagiri, Dharmapuri, Tiruvannamalai, Villupuram, Cuddalore and Salem.

If Chennai is excluded from Vanniyar belt, Vijayakant’s party has managed to get the third position in only six out of 84 seats, while its rival PMK had won the third place in 61 seats and second place in three constituencies.

The decision to go with the PWA apparently came as a shock to the cadre, who stayed away from the campaign and voting, said a district functionary to DC.
