He is the fourth senior functionary to resign and the second after former Vice President Dr R Mah­e­ndran to allege lack of democracy in the 3-year-old party. Muruganandam tweeted he had joined the party to do public work in “honest and inde­p­endent manner”. “But with no conducive situation for that today, I am quitting from all par­ty positi­ons and the primary membership," he added.
