S for Shameless

Rediff.com reports that the Vaiko-led MDMK in Tamil Nadu has severed ties with the DMK and will go to polls along with the ruling AIADMK.

Irked with the offer of just 22 seats by the Dravida Munnetra Kazhagam, which is heading the Democratic Progressive Alliance in Tamil Nadu, the Marumalarchi Dravida Munnetra Kazhagam on Saturday decided to walk out of the grouping and cross over to the All India Anna Dravida Munnetra Kazhagam camp.

MDMK General Secretary Vaiko is likely meet the AIADMK supremo and Tamil Nadu Chief Minister Jayalalithaa at her residence before Saturday noon to finalise and ink an agreement, party sources said.

I'm wondering if S stands for shock or shame. Ms Jayalalithaa had Mr. Vaiko incarcerated under the Prevention of Terrorism Act for the latter's fiery speeches in support of the LTTE. There was so much outcry against this. And yet, like a smitten canine, Mr. Vaiko has proved once again that politicians will remain politicians. Credibility, anyone?

The game has just begun.. and credibilty, loyalty and memory are not on the Rules Chart. Its sheer fun.. sit back, relax and enjoy the unique show, where we ruin ourselves, and even blog about it . :)

Funny that in the state of the Self Respect Movement, none of the Dravidian parties exhibit any self respect in forming poll alliances. The only party which showed some spine was the TMC and it wasnt a Dravidian party!

The decision, I feel, is "politically" right ;)
