TN: 250 MDMK workers join AIADMK
Chennai: A week after roping in fiery MDMK leader Nanjil Sampath, AIADMK Friday admitted 250 party workers of Vaiko-led MDMK into its fold, with Jayalalithaa assuring them that their aspirations would not go waste.
The MDMK cadre joined the ruling party in the presence of Jayalalithaa, who exhorted them to work with dedication so that the people of Tamil Nadu get their rights.
"You have come to the right place and your aspirations will be fulfilled here," she said.
Last week, Sampath, a long time associate of Vaiko, had joined AIADMK and was immediately appointed Deputy propaganda secretary.
Today, Jayalalithaa presented him with a Innova car to discharge party responsibilities, an AIADMK release said.
