Vaiko in the eye of TN electoral storm

[b]Vaiko in the eye of TN electoral storm[/b]

By M Rama Rao - Reporting for Asian Tribune from New Delhi

[b]New Delhi, 15 February (Asiantribune.com ):[/b] Vaiko, the MDMK chief, is the toast of Tamil Nadu politics, in a manner of speaking with assembly elections slated for April-May. What his new move will be?

The latest buzz on him is that he may walk out of the DMK led DPA ( the Tamil Nadu specific seven party Democratic Progressive Alliance) while remaining a part of the Congress led United Progressive Alliance (UPA) of Prime Minister Manmohan Singh in Delhi.

Vaiko is not available immediately for his reaction but sources acquainted with him and familiar with his brand of politics said that he told Manmohan Singh that he would be with the UPA but would bow out of DPA.

He is known to be not happy with his friends in the DMK. Like the PMK's Ramadoss. Both of them are peeved at what they term as 'raw deal' meted out to them by their Dravidian Big brother DMK led by aging script writer of silver screen, Muthavel Karunanidhi.
