The party's whip in Tamil Nadu Assembly, VC Chandrakumar, MLAs CH Sekar and SR Parthipan, besides seven others, displayed before reporters "a letter to Vijayakanth" dated March 24, questioning his logic behind aligning with PWF.

"The decision was not taken in line with the aspirations of party functionaries, workers and people whose sole motive is to throw out the Jayalalithaa government, and this is possible only by aligning with the DMK," Chandrakumar said.

"The decision to align with PWF is against the wishes of 95 percent of party workers and functionaries who favour a tie-up with DMK," he cited.

Chandrakumar, representing Erode (East) in the Tamil Nadu Assembly, said they were never given an audience by Vijayakanth to discuss the matter after he firmed up the alliance with PWF on March 23 and said the decision had been taken by the actor politician and his wife Premalatha "at their house."
