One of the senior leaders of TTV Dhinakaran's Amma Makkal Munntera Kazhagam (AMMK) in a spot of bother. A video allegedly featuring him asking a section of women cadres from AMMK why not they join another party for good posts was out in social media. Whatmore, in the video Pughazhendhi alleges in the video that he was the one who gave identity to TTV Dhinakaran, whom nobody knew.
He also said that no one knew about Dhinakaran and he was nowhere when Jaya died. This shocked many within the party. A few questioned his motive behind making such a statement. Much recently, a few leaders from AMMK had quit the party and joined the DMK. When contacted, AMMK senior leader Vettrivel, said, 'How can Pughazhendhi say that he only gave identity to Dhinakaran. This is ridiculous. I can sense that Pughazhendhi is planning to leave the party and join another major political party'.
