Chennai: In a bid to counter arch rival DMK which is harping on youth mantra, ruling AIADMK said that it would hold massive youth resurgence rallies across Tamil Nadu on March 7. AIADMK chief Jayalalaithaa has directed party MLAs and MPs to participate in the rallies and asked youth functionaries to coordinate with all other party wings and hold rallies in their respective areas to make it a big success. Party youth wings or "camps" as it is called in Tamil "Ilangyar Pasarai" and "Ilampengal Pasarai" for men and women were founded on March 7, 2008 by Jayalalithaa when it was the main opposition party to infuse new blood and rejuvenate it. The rallies are expected to be a morale booster for party cadres who are glum after Jayalalithaa's conviction last year.
