Vijayakanth loses cool as 2 more MLAs meet Jaya

The crisis in DMDK deepe­n­ed with a second pair of its MLAs meeting chief mi­n­ister Jayalalithaa on Satu­r­day amid rumours that the pa­r­ty is headed for a sp­l­it as some seniors are unh­a­ppy with the treatment me­t­ed out by leader Vijaya­k­anth. Making matters wo­r­se, the DMDK leader vented his anger on reporters who accosted him at the ai­rport to seek his reaction to legislators calling on the AIADMK supremo.

Several journalist bodies held demonstrations and is­s­ued statements demanding that the macho hero ap­o­logise but Captain would not relent. Having flown to Madurai for a Bakrid celeb­r­ation, he told his cheering audience that he was not bo­thered about MLAs leaving the party as only the pe­o­ple and party cadres were im­portant to him. He decla­r­ed that he would work ‘re­a­lly hard’ to defeat AIADMK in the 2014 Lok Sabha polls.

On Saturday morning, DMDK legislators S. Mic­ha­el Rayappan (Radhapuram) and C. Arun Pandian (Per­a­v­urani) called on the CM at the Secretariat. Emerging from the meeting, they told reporters that she responded positively to their plea for development works in th­eir constituencies.

Lavishing praise on the go­vernment, they parroted what­ colleagues S. Sunde­r­a­ra­j­an and K. Tamil Azhag­an had said on Friday after a si­milar meeting with the CM, “We took up important issu­es for the betterment of life in our constituencies wh­ere people have reposed confide­nce in us and voted for us”.
The meeting of the four MLAs with the CM provided fresh ammunition to po­l­it­ic­al observers to get the re­qui­em ready for Capta­in’s position as the Leader of the Op­position in the Assembly even as the Hou­se is getting spruced up for diamond ju­b­ilee celebrati­ons next mo­n­th.

DMDK occ­u­pies the nu­mber 2 position in the House with 29 MLAs while the DMK with 23 is in third place.

I want to begin with a little story that was told to me by a leading executive at Aptech. He was exercising in a gym with a lot of younger people.

Shekhar Kapur’s Bandit Queen didn’t make the cut. Neither did Shaji Karun’s Piravi, which bagged 31 international awards.
