AIADMK today celebrated its 45th founding day, with its Presidium Chairman E Madhusudhanan garlanding a statue of party founder M G Ramachandran and releasing a souvenir to mark the occasion. Madhusudhanan garlanded a statue of Ramachandran at AIADMK headquarters here in the presence of other senior leaders.
He also released the anniversary souvenir. Although party supremo and Chief Minister J Jayalalithaa leads the celebrations every year, this time she could not do so since the 68-year-old leader is indisposed and undergoing medical treatment at a hospital here since September 22. A charismatic actor, Ramachandran floated AIADMK in 1972 following his expulsion from DMK in the wake of differences with its chief M Karunanidhi.
