CHENNAI: Desiya Murpokku Dravida Kazhagam (DMDK) leader Vijayakant will launch his campaign for the Lok Sabha polls from Kancheepuram on March 22.

“The DMDK is facing the Lok Sabha polls for the first time.

Ramuvasanthan in a statement. Victory in the elections would provide an opportunity to the DMDK to play a role in solving all these problems. — Special Correspondent
