Kalaignar will not get any appreciation by providing RS seats to former AIADMK and MDMK members.
The ruling DMK on Sunday [30-5-2010] accepted the Pattali Makkal Katchi (PMK) back into its alliance, but refused to fulfil PMK founder S Ramadoss’s immediate demand for a Rajya Sabha seat for his son and former Union minister Anbumani Ramadoss.
The high-level action committee of the DMK, which met in the party headquarters, however, decided to spare an RS seat for the PMK in the 2013 biennial elections if the party returns to the DMK-led Democratic Progressive alliance (DPA) fold now and contests the next assembly and state legislative council polls as a DMK ally. However, it is not clear if the PMK would accept the offer.
As the nominations for the six RS seats open on Monday, there is no sign of Anbumani Ramadoss being re-elected for the second term immediately. Given the present composition of the state assembly, the DMK will get three seats, Congress one and AIADMK two.
Karunanidhi told mediapersons in the party headquarters that the DMK candidates would be S Thangavel of Sankarankoil, K P Ramalingam and TM Selvaganapathy of Salem. While Thangavel had returned to the DMK after a brief stint in the MDMK, both Ramalingam and Selvaganapathy were formerly in the AIADMK. DMK puts PMK on probation to test loyalty
While Congress alliance have established big victory in 2004 and 2009 Parliament Elections, the alliance parties insisted Congress that they are only the main reason for the Great victory and they must be allotted sound cabinet port folios for their party members. The parties were never interested in people’s welfare and were standing for their self-benefit only. People must realize about the political party’s real intention in standing for the elections and they must avoid for voting for such parties in elections.
Kalaignar Karunanidhi might have provided Rajya Sabha Seats to his own party people, who have tirelessly served for his party. By providing seats to AIADMK members,and MDMK he will not get any appreciation from his own party members as well as from public.
