[b]DMK releases 'educated' candidates list for TN polls[/b]

From M Rama Rao in New Delhi

[b]New Delhi, 31 March (Asiantribune, com):[/b] Contender for the Tamil Nadu 'throne' in the Fort, Karunanidhi released a list of his DMK party candidates. It is unusually titled heavily in favour of the educated, with 77 graduates in the fray prompting observers to remark the DMK's is an educated candidates list.

Muthavel Karunanidhi's ally PMK also released its own first list of 29 candidates selected mostly through the time tested consensus route. Founder Ramdoss has given tickets to only seven sitting MLAs and fielded party president G K Mani from Mettur.

As in the past this time around too, Karunanidhi will stand from his home turf - Chepauk in Chennai. His son and former Chennai Mayor Stalin is also contesting from Thousand Lights. So are the heavy weights like General Secretary Prof. K Anbazhagan from Harbor, Treasurer Arcot N Veerasami from Anna Nagar, former ministers A Rahman Khan from Park Town and S P Sargunapandian from Royapuram, former Deputy Speaker Parithi Ilamvazhuthi from Egmore and Actor Napoleon from Mylapore.
