Chennai: There is a hushed talk in the DMDK camp that the party’s head Vijayakanth’s health has deteriorated further in the United States where he is currently getting medical treatment and he is very serious. However, a DMDK spokesperson has dismissed it as a baseless rumour.
But still, tension prevails in the DMDK camp as there is no official denial of the ‘rumour’ so far. In Virudhachalam, a high-level meeting of DMDK functionaries took place this morning, but details as to what was discussed were not shared with the public.
The official mouthpiece of the DMDK- Captain TV and its Twitter handle, Captain Media have repeatedly been posting and telecasting about DMDK workers performing special poojas for the recovery of their beloved ‘Captain’.
Even today, DMDK cadres from Anakaputhur and Pallavaram went on a procession with 108 milk pots and performed abhishekam at the Aalavattamman temple for the speedy recovery of Vijayakanth. Such rituals have been seen happening around the State for some time including at Salem today.
Vijayakanth left for the United States from Chennai for treatment a week earlier than the date announced by the party due to his health. With doctors constantly monitoring his condition, news about Vijayakanth being serious is being circulated on social media.
