Udhayanidhi Stalin joins the cabinet of her father, MK Stalin, in Tamil Nadu as a minister.
After being appointed to his father MK Stalin’s administration, Udhayanidhi Stalin attained his goal of becoming a minister. In the assembly election, Udhayanidhi was a crucial factor in the victory over AIADMK.
The son of Tamil Nadu Chief Minister MK Stalin and secretary of the ruling DMK’s youth wing, Udhayanidhi Stalin, took the oath of office as a state minister in Chennai’s Durbar Hall.
I’d like to thank and congratulate Hon’ble Chief Minister @mkstalin for providing me the chance to join the Cabinet of the Dravidian model government, which implements social justice initiatives and safeguards Tamils’ welfare.I’ll always work responsibly, Junior Stalin tweeted.
Party members hail the 45-year-old legislator, who started his political career in the DMK’s youth wing, as an effective organiser and achiever who guided the youth wing to new heights.
He is in charge of a number of party initiatives, such as the steadfast recruitment campaign, the effort to instil Dravidian ideology, and workshops on the “Dravidian model.”
Last month, he was given a second term as the party’s youth wing chief.
Udhayanidhi, a first-time MLA, was chosen from this area’s Chepauk-Tiruvallikeni Assembly Constituency in the 2021 Assembly election.He ran as a major candidate for the party and became well-known for his electioneering strategies, which included posing with a block to attack the BJP for the “delay” in the AIIMS in Madurai’s development.
“The Chief Minister of Tamil Nadu (M K Stalin) has proposed to the Governor of Tamil Nadu (R N Ravi) to induct Udhayanidhi Stalin, Chepauk-Thiruvallikeni Assembly Constituency in the Council of Ministers,” the Raj Bhavan stated in an official statement.
Since the DMK replaced the AIADMK as the opposition party in May 2021, there had been anticipation for his nomination to the Cabinet.
The second wave of the coronavirus outbreak that coincided with it received the majority of the government’s attention. Udhayanidhi Stalin’s appointment as a minister is being demanded by both Ministers and party district secretaries, according to DMK spokesperson Constantine Ravindran. He told PTI, “Now, this desire is more pronounced.
According to political analyst Durai Karuna, leaders have been laying the groundwork for Udhayanidhi to become a minister for the past year.
Senior Ministers with significant influence over party matters, such as Duraimurugan and others, have publicly stated their support for the nomination of Udhayanidhi as a Minister.
Political analyst M. Bharat Kumar stated that his appointment was anticipated this week because the Tamil month of “Margazhi” would start the next week. For starting something new, many people believe March is unlucky.
Within the next three years, in time for the following Assembly election, Kumar predicted that Udhayanidhi would be given ministries such as Youth Welfare and Special Programme Implementation, which would advance him to the next level in the party and the government.
Edappadi Speaking at a party rally in Tirupur, K. Palaniswami, the head of the opposition and interim general secretary of the AIADMK, denounced the ruling DMK as a “family party.”
Stalin, according to him, has handed seniors “dummy” departments and plans to appoint his son Udhayanidhi to the position of Minister “within four days.”
He claimed that those that toiled for the party were not given positions.
The late DMK patriarch M Karunanidhi, according to the AIADMK leader, reportedly questioned whether the Nehru-Gandhi dynasty was a royal line because members of that family were able to ascend to the position of Prime Minister.
On Sunday, Palaniswami remarked, “He (Karunanidhi) had asked if others should not become the Prime Minister.
