Tamil Nadu: Newly elected 13 DMK members sworn in as MLAs

Chennai: Dravida Munnetra Kazhagam’s (DMK) number has gone up to 101 in the Tamil Nadu Assembly, after 13 members were sworn in as MLAs. This was after their victory in 13 constituencies in the recent by-polls.

All the 13 members were administered the oath of office by the Assembly Speaker P Dhanapal on Tuesday (May 28) in his chamber in the Assembly building in Fort St. George campus.

DMK president and leader of the opposition MK Stalin, DMK principal secretary TR Baalu and senior DMK leaders were present during the event. DMK allies Congress and Indian Union Muslim League (IUML) have eight and one members respectively.

However, the Congress’ tally would go down by one as Nanguneri MLA H. Vasanthkumar has been elected to the Lok Sabha.
