Stalin, during the press meet yesterday on December 18, said that all like-minded parties would be called to participate in the DMK protest on December 23. He also said that he would speak to Kamal over the phone to invite his participation. Further development on the issue, R S Bharathi personally met Kamal now to ask him to participate in the DMK protest.
