While the Central Government has not been too keen to act in the UN Council of Human Rights resolution against the Sri Lankan government by the western powers, both the political parties - DMK and ADMK
- have been competing in making statements in the Parliament and outside of their commitment to the Tamil cause in Sri Lanka.
With just nine members in the House, ADMK
was not qualified to be a member of the JPC.
Even if the new formation wins the poll in Tamil Nadu, the issue remains if these leaders would genuinely work for the uplift of ordinary masses or do exactly what the DMK and ADMK
and Congress and BJP have done everything to promote capitalists.
In the recent assembly byelections which was boycotted by the ADMK
, the DMDK's vote share shot up to 23 per cent.
Jayalalithaa and her ADMK
party another deadlier trouble than they faced hitherto, soon after the giant floods that shook the Tamil state, is in the pipeline.
The Congress already has the support of the nine-member ADMK
and many smaller parties such as the RLD, JDS among others.
If the BJP sheds its Hindutva plank and become a moderate party, regional parties such as the BSP, SP, Trinamool, DMK, TDP, ADMK
etc could align with it upsetting the UPA-NDA balance
Of course whether Stalin can really outsmart Jayalalithaa of ADMK
to be able to wield power in the state which is still under the tremendous influence of former chief ministers M.
czarina Jayalalithaa, who has moved to her hill station retreat of Ooty, called for the arrest of Raja under the Prevention of Corruption Act.
Bakthavatsalam in the sixties (after him the DMK and ADMK
alternatively rule the state), politics came relatively easier to Jayanthi Natarajan.
Firstly, it is undisputed that the Congress party, and no doubt the leading Opposition party, the BJP, will be wooing the DMK as well as the ADMK
for votes in Tamil Nadu, and Rajya sabha members elected from the State to support either the Congress or the BJP to form a government in India after the next general election.
Officially, the party continued to put up a brave face saying that the DMK was its ally and rejecting ADMK
