Regarding this, DMK sources said:
Little by little, Stalin wanted to register Udhayanidhi’s arrival and personality at all levels of the party, and wanted to bring Udhayanidhi to the next level in governance.
Even though Udhayanidhi, who was the Sports Minister a few months ago, is a junior in the cabinet, he is accorded due importance to the Chief Minister.
Party program posters and invitations are not printed without Stalin and Udayanidhi’s picture. Udhayanidhi himself is sent to those events where Stalin cannot attend.
In this case, steps have been taken to place him next to the Chief Minister in the ruling authority.
In December, the Youth Team State Convention is held in Salem. Udayanidhi will be elevated to the rank of Deputy Chief Minister on completion of the programme.
A few days ago, DMK youth team invited new administrators at Chennai Vidyalaya and praised Chief Minister Stalin.
Speaking in that meeting, DR Balu and A. Raja emphasized on taking Udayanidhi to the next level.
Behind this, there are political calculations. In order to express it, when Stalin spoke, ‘As mentioned by the senior leaders who spoke here, Udayanidhi is fully proving his worth. Soon he will reach the pinnacle that everyone expects.’
DMK sources said this.
-DR Balu: A gradual increase is the correct approach. In Stalin’s case, Karunanidhi did everything right. In that way, in exchange for Chief Minister Stalin’s height, his son Udhayanidhi has grown. The expectation of people like me is when he will become the Deputy Chief Minister and the Chief Minister. A. Raja: Stalin, when he became the party’s working leader and took charge as the chief minister, proudly spoke as ‘I raised my son’, Duraimurugan. I will be talking about the same idea again, in 20 years, about Udayanidhi. Udayanidhi has all the qualifications for that. Udayanidhi was the next leader of the Dravidian movement. Thus they spoke at the meeting of youth team administrators.-
