Amid overtures from parties, including DMK and BJP, to join their respective fronts to fight the state Assembly polls, the DMDK, on Saturday, authorized its chief Vijayakanth to take an appropriate decision over the issue.

"This General Council unanimously resolves and gives full powers to party founder president Vijayakanth to take an appropriate decision in regard to the DMDK's electoral stance for the upcoming Assembly election," a resolution adopted at the party's General and Executive Council meeting in Perambalur said.

It said that the DMDK has emerged as a "massive political movement" due to the people of Tamil Nadu.

"All sections of people are expecting the kind of stance our party is going to take for the Assembly elections," it added.

Twenty-two other resolutions were adopted at the meet and several of them strongly criticized the AIADMK government and vowed to unseat the ruling regime from the saddle of power.

Recently, Vijayakanth had told reporters here that he would announce his party's decision over the question of striking an alliance for the coming polls after the party's general and executive council meetings and a party conference.

Besides the DMK and BJP, the People's Welfare Front, comprising MDMK, CPI(M), CPI and the Viduthalai Chiruthaigal Katchi, has been persuading the DMDK to join its front.

The DMDK had got a vote share of 8% in the 2011 assembly elections.
