Chennai: DMK chief M Karunanidhi's son and party treasurer MK Stalin on Sunday strongly denied any rumours of his resignation from the party. Stalin's supporters want him to replace Karunanidhi as the party president.
Blaming the media for speculation, the DMK treasurer said, "This news is speculation. Someone with vested interests has done this to create confusion in the party. I strongly condemn it. I also reject this baseless news. I urge cadres not to believe this news."
Denying that he is aspiring for any post in the party, he said, "This has been done to create confusion among the rank and file of the party. This can be done by people like you (the media) also. I don't aspire any post in the party. I will work for the party without any expectations of party posts."
Stalin reportedly wanted the post of the DMK General Secretary. However, DMK senior leader K Anbazhagan holds the position and Stalin was asked to continue as the treasurer, after which he offered to resign.
The filing of nominations for the post of DMK's president, general secretary, treasurer and four audit committee members will take place on January 7. The election will be held on January 9.
