A selfie or a photograph with MDMK chief Vaiko will now cost Rs 100.

The Marumalarchi Dravida Munnetra Kazhagam on Thursday also appealed to its cadres not to felicitate the leader with a shawl and instead provide funds to the party.

Those desiring to click photographs and selfies with Vaiko, Rajya Sabha member, should remit a minimum donation of Rs 100 to the party, an MDMK headquarters release said.

“Party cadres should not henceforth honour our general secretary with shawl,” it said adding instead they could give funds to the party.

No reason was assigned by the party for its decision to seek funds for taking photographs and in lieu of shawl.

The party also wanted its members to immediately register as lifetime members.
