The newly elected President of DMK M.K. Stalin has asserted that the ideals and the path set by his father late M. Karunanidhi should be the guiding light in the future. Accepting the felicitations after being elected as the Chief of the party, he told that he was nothing compared to his father and opined that he envisions a new dawn for the party.

 Elaborating on the tardy path in politics, Mr.Stalin told that he wanted to join hands with all his party men and walk forward to get rid of divisive communal politics in the country.

 Mr.Stalin was announced as the president by the Party's general Secretary K.Anbalagan today. Earlier, the General Council meet passed several resolutions including appeal to the Central Government to award Bharat Ratna to late leader M.Karunanidhi for his enormous contributions to Tamilnadu and the Nation in all fields.

 Union Minister Pon Radha Krishnan, Congress President Rahul Gandhi, State BJP President Tamilisai Sounderrajan and leaders from various political parties extended their wishes to Mr.Stalin on becoming the President of the Party.
He also met thousands of party workers at the party headquarters this evening.

AIR correspondent reports that echoing the sentiments of their new President, thousands of party workers have been queueing up at the Party headquarters in Chennai to greet Mr.Stalin individually. A smiling Mr.Stalin stood hours together untiringly and shook hands with every worker. Known to be gentle in his approach, his speech today threw a strong message as he said that the Party would be seeing a new Stalin from now on.

Stalin's elder brother Alagiri who was expelled by his father for going against the interest of the party in 2014 has been claiming that he had loyalists with him and would hold a rally on September 5th at Chennai to express his discontent at his father'smemorial at the Marina Beach.

Political commentators say that the rumblings would fizzle out soon as Mr.Stalin was has the strong support of 65 district secretaries who nominated him for the post of president and Alagiri was also out of the party.
