Vaiko, DMK, & SUN TV.
When it comes to protecting Tamil culture the Pattali Makkal Kachi (PMK) and the DalitPanthers of India (DPI) have been brothers in arms. But now so in the assembly elections, where the PMK let Democratic Progressive alliance while the DPI has joined hands with the AIADMK in the Democratic People Front.
That is the way political alliance have been in Tamil Nadu, which goes to the pools on May 8. When it come to MDMK, really it is not a surprise that Vaiko left the DMK-let DPA in Seat sharing, it is a normal problem in election time, but it surprise that he joined with AIADMK, the opposite party of DPA. In last assembly election Vaiko asked 25 seats to contest in assembly elections, but DMK gave only 22, so he contest on his own and dint win in a single place. So he realized that if we contest alone, we would not win, so he alliance with ADMK.
The ADMK government heads my Chief Minister Jayalalithaa has sent him jail for two years under the prevention of Terrorism Act for his talk on supporting the LTTE. After coming out of Jail Vaiko undertake a padayartra (walking) throughout Tamil Nadu for protect the Jayalalithaa’s anarchy rule. I used to watch his padyatra in Vijay TV every Sunday, I like the way he showed his love on the people who every welcome him to there village. And his strength walk encouraged me to watch his show. By this padayartra against Jayalalithaa, he won all his seats in the 2004 Lok Sabha Election. I wonder where his heroism has gone now?
It was very funny to read his Interview in the WEEK Magazine, where he told:
“In the last ten months, there has been a mood in support of Jayalalithaa government among the people. This government withdrew several measures it took before the parliamentary elections and has earned the confidence of the minority communities in the past one year. This government has done good things like farmer’s protection scheme, the free cycle scheme, noon-meal scheme. The way Jayalalithaa handled drinking water problem in chennai and relief to tsunami and flood-affected people and killing Veerappan, arresting Jayendra Saraswarth has increased her popular among people.”
Until march 4 (when he join ADMK), he was protest against Jayalalithaa government for not doing anything for people and fail to control the situation on tsunami and flood. Now all come Inverse.
