Full Form of DMK :
Dravida Munnetra Kazhagam
DMK Full Form is Dravida Munnetra Kazhagam. DMK is a political party dominant in the state of Tamil Nadu and the Union Territory Puducherry in India. The party is essentially a Dravidian party, which was created by C.N. Annadurai in the year 1949. The party was the result of a breakaway from the Justice Party, which was regionally known as Dravidar Kazhagam, that was headed by Periyar. When aged Periyar decided to marry young girl Maniammai and appointed her to be his successor, many of his followers decided to part ways with Dravidar Kazhagam and started Dravida Munnetra Kazhagam under the leadership of C.N.Annadurai. This is how DMK was started in the year 1949.
Ever since the year 1969, DMK is under the command of Karunanidhi, who himself has served the Chief Minister of Tamil Nadu many times. DMK is the second party, only after the Indian National Congress, to have won state elections with an absolute majority in any state in India. It is one of the strongest political parties in the South India. The ideology of the DMK demands a separate state for the Dravidians. However, during the Chinese invasion, the party gave its full support to India by helping the latter raise funds for the war. Post-war, the simmering nationalism persuaded DMK to give up on its demand for a separate independent state. In the year 1965, the Anti-Hindi agitations occurred, which compelled the Union Government of India to give up on its efforts towards the imposition of Hindi as the country’s official language.
In the year 11974, the DMK-led government passed a resolution that the Central government should accept the recommendations made by the Rajamannar Committee on the autonomy of the State. The election symbol of the DMK is the Rising Sun and also has a flag that composes of black and red color. It publishes two newspapers called Murasoli and The Rising Sun. The party has been mired in several controversies, particularly those relating to corruption and nepotism. The Sarkaria Commission has implicated the DMK for its role in the allotment of tenders for Veeranam project. In the year 1976, Indira Gandhi had dismissed the DMK-led government on charges of corruption and probabilities of secession.
