Chandirakumar said the decision to join hands with the PWF is "suicidal" for the DMDK and Captain, as Vijaykanth is popularly known, should change the decision. In a press conference which was called in a hurry, he said Vijaykanth would hopefully invite the dissenters for talks.

He said they did not walk out of the party and were hoping to see Vijaykanth take the "right decision".

The DMDK supremo had earlier decided to contest the May 16 election alone but later joined hands with the PWF which comprises Vaiko's MDMK, VCK and two Left parties.

Eight DMDK MLAs joined the ruling AIADMK in February along with one legislator from the PMK and PT each.
