DMK Deputy General Secretary VP Duraisami removed from his posting in DMK after meeting with BJP Tamil Nadu chief Murugan. VP Duraisamy was the former deputy speaker of the Legislative Assembly from 1989 – 1991 and 2006 – 2011. He also served as a member of Rajya Sabha representing DMK.
This action comes after Duraiswami went to Kamalalayam the BJP head office Tamilnadu to congratulate Mr. Murugan for is new State president position in BJP. It is to be noted VP Duraiswami requested the Rajya Sabha MP seat in 2016. However it was rejected and given to Anthiyur Selvaraj.
DMK high committee is highly disappointed Duraiswamy meeting with Murugan. In recent interview Duraiswamy justified is meeting with BJP state president Murugan. This tension in the party made to take hard decisions and remove Duraiswamy from is Deputy General Secretary position. Anthiyur Selvaraj appointed as the new general secretary for DMK.
Duraiswamy not officially joined BJP but he was officially removed from DMK. It is very rare to see politicians joining BJP from the state party.
