Chennai, March 29 IANS | 6 months ago

Tamil Nadu's ruling AIADMK is not only attracting the legislators of DMDK floated by actor-turned politician A.Vijaykant but has now drawn his own brother A.Palraj into its ranks.


In a statement issued here Saturday, the AIADMK said Palraj and his wife Venkatalakshmi met the Tamil Nadu Chief Minister J.Jayalalithaa, who is also the party chief, in Madurai Friday and joined the party.

Already eight legislators of DMDK have turned rebels and are extending support to AIADMK in the state assembly.

The Friday development is expected to cause an embarrassment to the DMDK leader Vijaykant who is also called as Black MGR for his philanthropic activities.

Incidentally it was another actor-turned-politician M.G.Ramachandran, popularly known as MGR, who had floated AIADMK and had been the state's chief minister continuously between 1977-1987.

MGR was also known for his philanthropy.
