Chennai : The DMK on Monday night removed senior party leader TKS Elangovan as the party spokesperson, a position that he has held for the past many years.
Considered close to party leader Kanimozhi, Elangovan was very articulate and was equally at home in English and Tamil. Perhaps, he may be given some other responsibility hoped a party leader who wished to remain anonymous.
Officially, in a statement issued here late on Monday night, the party general secretary K.Anbazhagan said Elangovan appointed as party’s spokesperson is relieved from that post. It cited no reason for removing the veteran leader as the party’s interlocutor with media. Elangovan is also a Rajya Sabha member.
His removal came hours after he was named as one of the party persons authorised to speak to the media.
