Chennai: DMK president MK Stalin on Wednesday hoisted a giant-sized party flag atop a 114-feet-tall pole. Stalin said DMK would emerge victorious in the electoral battle and the high flying flag was a prelude to it.

Stalin said this flag is a symbol of future electoral victories and the party's lofty ideals. The 30 feet wide x 20 feet high flag is placed at the party headquarters in Anna Arivalayam, Chennai. The flag mast was manufactured in Pune and the flag at Mumbai.

It is reported that the flag will fly all time with two high-beam lamps facing the mast upward to reflect its light on the red-and-black party flag during the night. The day-and-night flag drove home the point that party cadre should work tirelessly all the time for the electoral win.

DMK leaders TR Balu and Duraimurugan took part in the flag unveiling event.

Later, in a letter to party cadres, Stalin spoke about his recent visit to Delhi to meet with several leaders including Sonia Gandhi and invite them for the inauguration of Kalaignar's (late M Karunanidhi) statue on December 16 here. He also said that all opposition parties were on the same page in dislodging the BJP regime at the Centre.

Stalin also mocked the BJP by saying that the saffron party lost in Assembly elections in many states and they will continue to fail in other states of the country too. He also said BJP would unquestionably lose in Tamil Nadu and the Lok Sabha polls.
