The party has been facing continuous losses since the 2011 assembly elections, all at the hands of archrival AIADMK. It had also drawn a blank in the 2014 Lok Sabha polls.
DMK chief M Karunanidhi’s efforts to rope in Vijayakant’s DMDK had failed and the actor-politician announced that his party will go alone in the polls.
