பிராமணர் ராஜாஜியுடன் கூட்டணி வைத்த கருணாநிதி தமிழர் மூப்பனாரை பிரதமர் பதவிக்கு ஆதரிக்கவில்லை.
In his address to the members of the DMK’s General Council, Karunanidhi Reaffirming DMK’s support for a non-communal party for the nation’s development, party chief M Karunanidhi on 3-2-2012 indicated present ally Congress alone seemed to fit the bill and said he wanted to prevent BJP from coming to power at the Centre.
Claiming that some “Brahmin friends in Delhi” were working towards making his archrival and AIADMK chief J Jayalalithaa the next Prime Minister, the DMK patriarch said he was not bothered about this.“Let anyone become the Prime Minister. But if one looks at which party will put the nation in the path of communist, socialist growth, and if BJP comes to power, one cannot forget that another Babri mosque demolition could happen,” he said.
We want to bring it to the notice of Karunanidhi that the electoral alliance between DMK, Swatantra Party and Muslim League had emerged in the years before the 1964 civic elections throughout Madras state. During the 1964 election campaign and Brahmin Rajagopalachari had said, “The DMK and Muslim League are my children and I am duty bound to nurse them to strength and stature.
The fourth elections to the Madras Legislative assembly were held in February 1967. At the age of 88, Brahmin Rajaji worked to forge a united opposition to the Indian National Congress through a tripartite alliance between the Dravida Munnetra Kazhagam, the Swatantra Party and the Forward Bloc. The Congress party was defeated in Madras for the first time in 30 years and the coalition led by Dravida Munnetra Kazhagam came to power. C. N. Annadurai served as Chief Minister from March 6, 1967 till his death on February 3; 1969. Rajaji delivered a moving eulogy to Annadurai at his funeral. Navalar Nedunchelian who was next to Anna was overthrown by Karunanidhi and he becomes the Chief Minister.
Tamil Maanila Congress president Govindaswamy Karupaiah Moopanar has emerged as the favourite to succeed H D Deve Gowda as India’s next prime minister. The 67-year-old former Congressman from Tamil Nadu was in the lead that time. Moopanar would most probably follow the example of Kamraj who strove to show the people of the state that he was a more Tamil (Pachchai Thamilan) than the leaders of the DMK who at that time were accusing him of serving northern masters.
In those days DMK criticised Congress leader Perunthalaivar Kamaraj and Backthavathsalam with undignified slogans. Now this Karunanidhi wants to continue his alliance with Congress. While several lakhs of Tamilians in Sri Lanka was mascared, he never protested against Congress Government, and he was only particular in safe guarding his family interest.
Now he says some “Brahmin friends in Delhi” were working towards making his archrival and AIADMK chief J Jayalalithaa the next Prime Minister. Can he tell who are that Brahmin friends in Delhi? Whether Pranab Mukarji, Mamatha Banarji or Brahmin Rajiv Gandhi’s wife Soniaji?
Now Karunanidhi says the BJP is a communal party and he wants to continue alliance with Congress. Can he tell why he was having alliance with BJP and got a minister post for his brother-in-law Murasoli Maran? Can he tell why he had not supported Tamilan G.K.Moopanar for PM post and accepted Brahmin Rajaji support in 1967 assembly elections? We want people must think Karunanidhis way of double talk by creating caste contradiction.
