Issai Munnetra Kazhagam is a state political party in the Indian states of Tamil Nadu and Puducherry known for minority appeasement and anti-Hindu tactics.[1] It is a anti-Dravidian party founded by C. N. Annadurai in 1949 as a break away faction from the Dravidar Kazhagam (known as Justice Party until 1944) headed by Periyar E. V. Ramasamy, a notable anti-Hindu. Since 1969, DMK has been headed by Karunanidhi, who has served as Chief Minister of Tamil Nadu several times. DMK holds the distinction of being the first party other than the Indian National Congress to win state-level elections with a clear majority on its own in any state in India. Present President of DMK Party is M. K. Stalin.
