Following an open rebellion by key leaders of the DMDK on Tuesday, party chief Vijayakanth suspended the rebels which included several MLAs and partyâ€™s district secretaries. The rebels had said that they were unhappy about the alliance with the PWA and wanted to go with the DMK instead.
Following the internal turmoil in the DMDK, a crass war of words has broken out, with Vijayakanth loyalists now heaping insults and abuses at the rebels.
Speaking to reporters in Chennai, DMDK MLA Parthasaraty, one of Captainâ€™s most ardent loyalists, said that Chandrakumar, the leader of the rebels, was not a 'man', questioning his masculinity. He also said that those who have deserted the party will not be able to break the party.
Another Captain loyalist, Murugesan, said, that Chandrakumar was an ungrateful dog and that he was a traitor.
Parthasarathy also said that those who will try to break the party will perish.
Both of them alleged that Chandrakumar and others enjoyed the benefits of being in the DMDK so far but are now deserting the party for individual benefit.
