I will always be a DMK loyalist, says Maran

Dravida Munnettra Kazhagam (DMK) leader Dayanidhi Maran, who quit his post of Communication and IT Minister on Sunday, today said that he will always remain a party loyalist.

Chennai, May 14 : Dravida Munnettra Kazhagam (DMK) leader Dayanidhi Maran, who quit his post of Communication and IT Minister on Sunday, today said that he will always remain a party loyalist.

"I am still a DMK man, but I am sad because of the accusations levelled against me. And I am thankful to my leader (M Karunanidhi) for giving me the opportunity to perform," Maran told reporters here.

He also maintained that he had nothing to do with the Sun TV or Dinakaran poll survey that said that M K Stalin and not M K Azhagiri should be Karunanidhi's political heir.

Maran's resignation came after the administrative committee of the DMK on Sunday passed a resolution to secure the resignation of Maran in the wake of what is termed as 'mischievous' poll surveys published by his newspaper that brought the succession battle within the party out in open.

Karunanidhi and his party are apparently upset that the Maran brothers had not heeded to his advice to call off the poll survey on who would be Karunanidhi's successor.

Maran, however, said that he has very good relation with Stalin, who is the youngest son of the DMK party leader and Tamil Nadu Chief Minister Muthuvel Karunanidhi and Azhagiri, the elder son of party's chief.

He also said that he wont' take any ministerial post even if it was offered now, and admitted that Congress president and United Progressive Alliance (UPA) Chairperson was upset over his quitting from the Cabinet.

Commenting on the telecom scenario in the country, Maran said that he was planning to abolish roaming charges applicable on mobile network on the occasion of Karunanidhi's birthday.

"I hope my successor at the Centre would take forward the plan taken during my tenure," he said.
