Stalin backtracks after offering to resign
Dravida Munnetra Kazhagam (DMK) chief M Karunanidhi's son and treasurer M K Stalin on Sunday withdrew his resignation, hours after he offered to quit all party posts, reports said.
According to reports, M K Stalin withdrew his resignation after Karunanidhi asked him not to do it.
"So he accepted our request and leader's (Karunanidhi) advice also and withdrew the resignation," DMK leader Durai Murugan was quoted as saying by NDTV.
Stalin had offered to resign by taking moral responsibility for his party's decimation in the Lok Sabha elections.
Before withdrawing his resignation, his elder brother and expelled DMK leader MK Alagiri had called Stalin's move a 'drama'.
DMK did not win a single seat in the 16th Lok Sabha elections.
DMK's arc rival J Jayalalithaa's AIADMK swept the polls by bagging 37 of the 39 seats in Tamil Nadu.
