Actor Kamal Haasan-led Makkal Needhi Maiam (MNM) suffered yet another desertion at the senior level on Wednesday when party general secretary M Muruganandam announced quitting the party, blaming lack of democracy and honesty.
He is the fourth senior level functionary to resign and the second after former Vice President Dr R Mahendran to allege lack of democracy in the three year-old party. In a tweet, Muruganandam said he had joined the party to do public work in “honest and independent manner.”
“But with no conducive situation for that today, I am quitting from all party positions as well as the primary membership,” he added.
In his resignation letter uploaded on his Twitter handle, Muruganandam alleged that in the past few days there was “no democracy” in the organisation.
“With no democracy prevailing in the party, I have decided it is not appropriate to continue in it anymore,” he said.
