Vijaykant shift stance;hints about alliance

Theni, Nov 23: Deviating from the stand to go it alone with people's support eversince the DMDK party was started, its leader Vijayakanth has indicated that he could go for alliance if the party cadres wished so. Presiding over a mass wedding organised by his party here today, Vijayakanth urged the government to provide relief to the poor and middle class people who had been hit hard by the steep rise in the prices of essential commodities, asked the cadres if it was good to have alliance with the ruling party if they agreed to implement all their suggestions including the relief.

When the cadres said "parpom"(let us see), he said he did not want to garland the shadow of "alliance now" and when the election comes he would discuss with the district office bearers and take a decision according to their wish.

Coming down heavily on the government for the steep price hike, he said the government could immediately give a relief of Rs.500 for each card holder to overcome the price rise.

Each couple were given groceries for one month, vessels, cot, almirah, gold mangalya sutra. Cost of wedding for each couple came to Rs.54000, he said. - Agencies

DMDMK demands probe by SC Judge on 3G Spectrum contract

Chennai, Oct 7 : Desiya Murpokku Dravida Kazhagam (DMDK) founder and actor-politician Vijayakanth today demanded a judicial probe headed by a Supreme Court Judge into the alleged irregularities in the award of 3G Spectrum contract for private telecom service providers.

Talking to newspersons here, he said Minister for IT and Telecommunications A Raja, however, should be dropped from the Cabinet, before ordering the Judicial probe.

''It should be headed by a Supreme Court Judge. The Minister concerned should be dropped only then the entire truth will come to light'', Vijayakanth said.

The DMDK's demand comes in the wake of allegations by a section of the public sector BSNL employees that there were large scale irregularities, running to the tune of Rs 25,000 crores, in the award of contract for 3G Spectrum to private telecom operators.

It may be recalled that the UPA government announced the guidelines for the auction of spectrum to launch the third-generation (3G) mobile phone services in the country in August.

The 3G service will not only allow much faster communications but also a wide range of applications such as high-speed net access, video calls, fast music and video downloads, interactive gaming and global positioning over Internet.

Spectrum in 2.1 GHz band will be allocated for 3G (GSM) telecom services throughout the country and some 60 MHz of spectrum was available for wireless telephony.

For 3G (CDMA) services, three slots will be available as spectrum will be auctioned in 450 MHz, 800 MHz and 1,900 MHz when it becomes available.

As per the guidelines, initially five operators will get 3G license and subject to availability it would go up to ten operators. In Delhi and Mumbai, there will be two to three operators due to shortage of spectrum.

A reserve price of Rs 160 crore had been fixed for Delhi, Mumbai and all 'A' category circles, Rs 80 crores for Kolkata and 'B' category circles and Rs 30 crore for category 'C' circles.

The base price will add up to Rs 2,020 crore for an all-India licence and the government expects to earn more than Rs 30,000 to 40,000 crore from the auction of spectrum for 3G services.

Free rice is election broth, says Vijayakant

15 Sep 2008
CHENNAI: Flaying the state government for its cheap rice scheme, actor and DMDK leader, Vijayakant on Sunday described it as an 'election gimmick'
only meant to help the ruling DMK to garner votes in the Lok Sabha election.

The quality of the rice, now sold at Re 1 per kilo in ration shops, was "very bad" and the new scheme helped the government to use up its PDS stocks, Vijayakant said. The DMDK, launched in September 2005, observed the party's third anniversary at a function in the city.

It was not sops that people wanted, but jobs as the rising inflation and consequent price rise were a severe burden on them, he said, claiming they were fed up with the freebies offered by the government. A few days after it announced the cheap rice scheme, the DMK government on Sunday came up with yet another sop, that of providing 10 cooking ingredients at a subsidised rate.

The government should focus more on creating job opportunities instead, said Vijayakant, promising one lakh jobs for youth across the state. Applications would be collected from young people across Tamil Nadu and based on an assessment, the party would help one lakh youth to get jobs, he said. On October 18, the party's youth wing will hold a rally and public meeting in Chennai. Non committal on the alliance issue, the actor said while regional parties (like the DMK and AIADMK) opposed the DMDK, national parties encouraged it.

DMDK women condemn price rise, power cuts

Demanding solution: Women members of the Desiya Murpokku Dravida Kazhagam staging a demonstration in Tiruchi on Sunday.

TIRUCHI: Women members of the Desiya Murpokku Dravida Kazhagam (DMDK) staged a demonstration in the city on Sunday condemning price hike and the power cuts across the State owing to “inefficient” administration of the ruling DMK government.

Organised by the DMDK’s women’s wing, the demonstration was staged on the instructions of the party founder and actor Vijaykanth.

Carrying party flags, the women members assembled near the Anna Statue in Chinthamani here, and staged a demonstration condemning the sharp increase in the prices of essential commodities and continuing power cuts across the State affecting all sections of the society.

The demonstration was led by the party urban district women’s wing secretary S. Padmavathy in which the party State deputy secretary and former Minister K.P. Krishnan and urban district organiser R. Vijayarajan delivered special addresses.

Women cadres of DMDK staged a demonstration in front of the railway station. Mohammed Ali, Town president of the party and others participated.

The women’s wing unit of the DMDK staged a demonstration in front of the Public Office here on Sunday, protesting the inflationary trend and power shutdown in the state.

The district organiser of the party Vijay Azhagesan led the agitation. The State secretary of the party’s workers wing, M.R.P. Chandramohan and the headquarters propagandist K. Jayasankar were among those who spoke.

They alleged that the State’s economic progress was at stake due to erratic power supply and urged the Tamil Nadu Electricity Board to take immediate alternative measures for ensuring an uninterrupted power supply.

In Perambalur, the district secretary of the women’s wing of the party, Kalavathy, led the agitation staged in front of the arch on the Collector Office Road.

The State secretary of the fishermen wing of the party, Madhiazhagan, and the district secretary of the party, Durai Kamaraj, were among those who spoke.

Tamilnadu: Black MGR a force to reckon with

5 Jul 2008
THE FOUNDER-president of Desiya Murpokku Dravida Kazhagam (DMDK), Tamil film star Vijayakanth, it is admitted in enlightened circles, has made a successful entry into Tamilnadu politics. His success has come about in spite of his paddling his own canoe. He has not allied with any of the political parties, national or regional, so far. His view that his party is a force to reckon with in spite of its nascent origin and hence there is no need for his party to ride piggyback on any of the parties, national or regional, prominent in Tamilnadu, seems to carry conviction. He commands a big following in Tamilnadu and unlike the other regional outfits in Tamilnadu, the Dravidian parties included, has given the impression that he would approach all issues from a national perspective and will not allow parochial tendencies to creep in.

In Vridhachalam, the constituency that he represents, he has launched several developmental activities. He is one of the few non-Dravida Munnetra Kazhagam (DMK), non-All India Anna Dravida Munnetra Kazhagam (AIADMK) and non-Congress party candidates to have won. He has been in constant touch with the electorate. What is more, he has been accessible to them. The goodwill he has earned has in turn earned the admiration of the rank and file and some leaders of other political parties, although a thread of grudge runs through it at times. So much so, the DMK leadership hit him below the belt by insinuating that a Telugu-ite should not be allowed to rule over the people of Tamilnadu. Being one from neither the ruling party nor the major opposition, the welfare and developmental activities he launched in his constituency did not receive adequate support from the state government. In what seems to be a part of a virtuous circle in the offing, he is blessed with a wife who has proved in a short time that she is politically savvy too like her husband.

At a party function in Kanchipuram, 70km along the coast from Chennai, Vijayakanth’s wife Premalatha invited the people to see for themselves her husband’s contribution to his constituency’s development, although he received little help from the government in his efforts. The people of Vridhachalam were happy with his performance. Her husband would repeat the achievement over the entire state of Tamilnadu if his party was voted to power in the state. She wanted the entire state to benefit in the same manner as Vridhachalam.

Premalatha is often accompanied by her brother Satish and the two command enormous clout in the party. She reminded the audience that the DMDK was not just another new political party as described by some politicians. (Jayalalithaa, the AIADMK supremo, about a couple of months ago, dismissed the alleged threat posed by DMDK by remarking that after a spell of rain, it was natural for some moss to proliferate and a la the moss, the new parties would fade into oblivion). Perhaps referring to this remark, Premalatha said that the DMDK had grown over thirty years from a film fans association into a political party, thanks to the love and affection the people of the state had rained on it. She dared the other political parties to contest the elections on their own (without entering into any alliance).

Only Vijayakanth had declared that he was ready to fight the Lok Sabha elections on his own. But Premalatha did not explain why Vijayakanth publicly declared sometime ago that he was being wooed by both the DMK and the AIADMK. Did he imply that he was open to an alliance with either of them?

However, if the two Left parties parted ways with the DMK-Congress front on the nuclear deal (it is a certainty now), they might be inclined to consider an alliance with Vijayakanth. The DMK would also be interested in the DMDK as a substitute for the Pattali Makkal Katchi (PMK) with whom it recently snapped all ties. But Vijayakanth had better be careful with the DMK and the PMK. The former in particular will not hesitate to hit below the belt. If Vijayakanth becomes invincible, the DMK will rake up his Telugu roots (Vijayakanth is a Telugu-ite by birth) because even the octogenarian leader of the DMK, M Karunanidhi is yet to become a statesman (vide, “It’s time Karunanidhi became a statesman”).

DMDK protest against govt

Sun, 16 Nov, 2008,01:38 PM
A state-wide protest was organised on Sunday by the DMDK women's wing to protest against the power crisis and the price rise which had affected the common people the most.

DMDK chief Vijayakanth's wife Premalatha took part in the protest demonstration organised by the party in the city.
Anti-government slogans were raised by the women cadres of the DMDK during the protest rallies organised across districts in Tamilnadu as part of the state-wide agitation.

Premalatha took part and spoke during the agitation in front of the Collectorate office in Chennai.

Protest rallies and demonstrations were held by the DMDK in Villupuram, Perambalur, Vellore, Thiruvallur, Thiruvannamalai and other districts in front of their District Collectorate offices with women functionaries taking part in large number.

DMDK to boycott all party meeting on Oct 14

Chennai, Oct 12
The Desiya Murpokku Dravida Kazhagam (DMDK) actor-politician and founder-president Vijayakanth will boycott the October 14 all-party meeting convened by Tamil Nadu Chief Minister M Karunanidhi, demanding Centre's intervention to stop genocide against the Tamils in Sri Lanka.

In a statement here, Mr Vijayakanth said the Chief Minister had convened the meeting only to divert the attention of the people from a host of issues faced by the DMK, like power cuts, rising prices and the alleged irregularities in 2G spectrum allotment.

He said while the Indian Government was prepared to hold talks with the banned Naga outfit like NSCN, why it should not urge the Sri Lankan Government to adopt a similar stand and hold talks to arrive at a peaceful solution for the decade-long ethnic crisis.

Mr Vijayakanth asked why the idea of inviting all parties did not crop up while calling for a public meeting by the DMK and took objection to the party not condemning the Centre's action in providing Radars and other assistance to the Sri Lankan troops.

Mr Karunanidhi, without wasting time, should use his good offices at the Centre, exert pressure and urge India to intervene to stop the killing of innocent Tamils, he added.

குடும்பத்துக்காக திமுக-தோழிக்காக அதிமுக: விஜய்காந்த் புதன்கிழமை

ஆகஸ்ட் 27, 2008
சென்னை: தமிழகத்தில் குடும்பத்துக்காக ஒரு கட்சியும், தோழிக்காக ஒரு கட்சியும் இயங்கி வருகின்றன. ஆனால், தேமுதிக மக்களுக்காக நடத்தப்படும் கட்சி என தேமுதிக தலைவர் விஜயகாந்த் கூறினார்.

விஜயகாந்த் ரசிகர் மன்றத்தில் பொறுப்பு வகித்து, தற்போது தேமுதிக வட்ட அவைத் தலைவராக இருப்பவர் தொண்டர் சிவா.

சென்னை அசோக் நகர் புதூர் குடிசை மாற்று வாரிய குடியிருப்பில் வசி்க்கும் இவருக்கும் சர்மிளா தேவிக்கும் தனது செலவில் விஜயகாந்த் இன்று திருமணத்தை நடத்தி வைத்தார்.

அந்த திருமண நிகழ்ச்சியில் விஜய்காந்த் பேசியதாவது:

எனக்காக உழைக்கும் என் கட்சி தொண்டர்களின் வீட்டில் கால் வைப்பது எனக்கு மிக மிக சந்தோஷம். இந்த கல்யாண செலவை முழுவதுமாக ஏற்பதாக கூறினேன். அதோடு சீர்வரிசையை நான் செய்கிறேன் என்றபோது, தென் சென்னை மாவட்ட நிர்வாகிகள் உங்களோடு சேர்ந்து நாங்களும் செய்கிறோம் என்றனர்.

அது எனக்கு மிக மிக சந்தோஷம் அளித்தது. இங்கு பேசியவர்கள் தாழ்த்தப்பட்ட சமுதாயம் என்று பேசினார்கள். அவ்வாறு பேசுவது எனக்கு பிடிக்காது. நான் ஜாதியே கிடையாது என்று நினைப்பவன். ஏதோ ஒவ்வொருத்தரும் ஒவ்வொரு இடத்தில் பிறந்து விட்டோம். இனிமேல் ஜாதி குறித்து யாரும் பேசக் கூடாது.

ஜாதியை தூண்டிவிட்டு அதில் சிலர் குளிர் காய்வார்கள். எனக்கு அது பிடிக்காது. இந்த நாடு நிம்மதியாக இருக்க வேண்டும். நிம்மதியான வாழ்க்கை வேணும்.

தற்போது நாட்டில் விலைவாசி அதிகமாக உயர்ந்துள்ளது. குறைந்த விலைக்கு அரிசியே கிடையாது. பெட்ரோல், டீசல் தட்டுப்பாடு தமிழகத்தில் அதிகமாக உள்ளது. ஆனால் கர்நாடகத்தில் பெட்ரோல், டீசல் தட்டுப்பாடு கிடையாது. விலைவாசியை குறைக்க முடியும் என்று நாம் சொன்னால், அதற்கு முதல்வர் யோசனை சொல்லுங்கள் என்கிறார். இதற்காகவா நீங்கள் முதலமைச்சராக இருக்கிறீர்கள்?

முதலமைச்சருக்கு தேவை என்றால் நன்றாக பேசுவார். அவருக்கு தேவையில்லை என்றால் உடனே ஜாதியை இழுப்பார். அதே போல் அவருக்கு ஜால்ரா போட்டால் பாராட்டுவார். யாராவது குறையை சுட்டிக்காட்டினால் ஜாதியை பயன்படுத்தி பேசுவார். இதுபோல் மாற்றி மாற்றி பேசுபவர்தான் நம்நாட்டு முதலமைச்சர்.

மலேசியாவில் வறுமை கிடையாது. ஹாங்காங்கில் மின் தட்டுப்பாடு இல்லை. ஆனால் இவர்கள் உலக நாடுகளில் விலைவாசி ஏற்றம் என்கிறார்கள் அது பொய். முதலில் அறிவிக்கப்படாத மின்வெட்டு வந்தது, இப்போது அறிவித்த மின்வெட்டு. 4 மாதமாக கிராமங்களில் மின்சாரமே இல்லை. இதற்கு ஒரு அமைச்சர் தேவைதானா?.

ஜெயலலிதா ஆட்சியில் மின் தேவை சரி செய்யப்படவில்லை என்கிறார்கள். இப்போது நீங்கள் வந்து 2 வருடமாகிறது. அதை சரிசெய்ய வேண்டிதானே? அதைவிட்டுவிட்டு எப்போது எதில் கொள்ளையடிக்கலாம் என்று, அங்கே இங்கே பாலத்தை கட்டி கொள்ளையடிப்பதிலேயே குறியாக இருக்கிறார்கள்.

இந்த அரசை மக்கள் தூக்கியெறியும் நாள் கூடிய சீக்கிரம் வரத்தான் போகிறது.

மணமக்கள் ஒருவருக்கொருவர் விட்டுக் கொடுத்து ஒற்றுமையாக வாழவேண்டும். நானும், என் மனைவியும் ஒருவருக்கொருவர் விட்டுக் கொடுத்து வாழ்க்கை நடத்துகிறோம். நான் செய்யும் உதவிகளை என் மனைவி ஊக்கப்படுத்துவார்.

நாம் ஆரம்பித்துள்ள இலவச கணிப்பொறி பயிற்சி மையம் பலர் பயன்பெற்று வருகிறார்கள். விருத்தாச்சலம் தொகுதியில் மந்தாரகுப்பத்தில் மிகப்பெரிய இன்னொரு கணிப்பொறி பயிற்சி மையத்தை துவக்க இருக்கிறேன். இதற்கு யாரும் இடம் கொடுக்கக் கூடாது என்று அமைச்சர் எம்.ஆர்.கே.பன்னீர்செல்வம் இடம் கொடுப்பவர்களை மிரட்டுகிறார்.

இந்த மிரட்டலை மீறி ஒருவர் இடம் கொடுத்ததையடுத்து கணிப்பொறி மையம் திறக்கப்பட இருக்கிறது. திமுக என்ற பெயருக்கு என்ன அர்த்தம் என்று உங்களுக்கு தெரியுமா. அதில் வரும் முதல் எழுத்து 'தி' என்பது முதலமைச்சர் பிறந்த ஊரான திருக்குவளை, 'மு' என்பது கருணாநிதியின் தந்தை பெயர் முத்துவேலரை குறிக்கிறது. 'க' என்பது கருணாநிதியின் பெயரை குறிக்கிறது. ஆனால் நம்முடைய தேமுதிக யார் பெயரையும் குறிக்காமல் பொதுவானது.

நான் பொறுத்து பொறுத்து பார்த்துவிட்டேன். இந்த 2 கட்சிகளும் ஊழல் செய்வதிலேயே குறியாக இருக்கின்றனர். அதிமுக கோட்டை முதல் சுடுகாடு வரை ஊழல் செய்தது. திமுக கோட்டை முதல் சாம்பல் வரை ஊழல் செய்கிறது.

வரும் தேர்தலில் திமுக ஒரு ஓட்டுக்கு ரூ.5,000 கொடுக்க இருப்பதாக தகவல் வருகிறது. அது அவர்களின் சொந்தப் பணம் அல்ல. கொள்ளையடித்த பணம்தான். அதனால் பணம் கொடுத்தால் வாங்கிக் கொள்ளுங்கள். ஒட்டுப் போடும்போது எனக்கு போடுங்கள். அதாவது அவர்கள் கொடுக்கும் பணம் உங்களுக்கு, ஓட்டு எனக்கு.

திமுக மீண்டும் ஆட்சிக்கு வந்தால் நம்மிடம் இருப்பதை அனைத்தையும் உருவிவிடுவார்கள். அறிவு வளர்வதற்காக இலவச டிவி கொடுக்கிறோம் என்கிறார்கள். ஆனால் அரசு கேபிள் டிவியில் இந்த இலவச டிவிக்கு ஏன் பணம் வாங்குகிறார்கள். அதையும் இலவசமாக கொடுக்க வேண்டிதானே? திமுகவுக்கு மக்கள் நல்ல பாடம் புகட்ட வேண்டும்.

சில நாட்களுக்கு முன் 65 பேருக்கு கண் பாதிப்பு ஏற்பட்டுள்ளது. இதற்கு சொட்டு மருந்து சரியில்லை என்கிறார்கள். மக்கள் உயிர் உங்களுக்கு அவ்வளவு கேவலமாக போய்விட்டதா?.

ஒருத்தர் தோழிக்காக கட்சி நடத்துகிறார். இன்னொருத்தர் குடும்பத்திற்காக கட்சி நடத்துகிறார். நான் மக்களுக்காக கட்சி நடத்துகிறேன். திமுகவும், அதிமுகவும் ஆளுக்கொரு டிவி வைத்துக் கொண்டு பொய் செய்திகளை வெளியிட்டு வருகிறார்கள். இது திருமண வீடு என்பதால் மிகக் குறைவாக நான் அரசியல் பேசுகிறேன்.

இளைஞர்களே நீங்கள் வரதட்சணை வாங்காதீர்கள். நான் வரதட்சணை வாங்காமல் திருமணம் செய்தேன். நீங்கள் இப்போது வரதட்சணை வாங்கினால் நாளை உங்கள் குழந்தைகளுக்காக வரதட்சணை கொடுப்பதற்கு கஷ்டப்பட வேண்டியிருக்கும் என்றார் விஜய்காந்த்.

விழாவில் ஒரு பெண் குழந்தைக்கு தனது மனைவியின் பெயரான பிரேமலதா என்றும், மற்றொரு பெண் குழந்தைக்கு
விஜயலட்சுமி என்றும், ஆண் குழந்தைக்கு விஜயராஜ் என்றும் (இது தான் விஜய்காந்தின் ஒரிஜினல் பெயர்), மற்றொரு ஆண் குழந்தைக்கு ரமணா (விஜய்காந்த் நடித்த படம்) என்றும் விஜயகாந்த் பெயர் சூட்டினார்.

DMDK president Vijayakanth has accused the State and Central governments

October 31, Chennai, - DMDK president Vijayakanth has accused the State and Central governments of not ensuring a ceasefire in Sri Lanka.

‘The Sri Lankan Tamils issue came in handy for Tamilnadu Chief Minister M Karunanidhi to divert people’s attention from power cut, price rise and other problems....

He enacted a drama by announcing the resignation of Tamil Nadu MPs if the Centre did not ensure ceasefire in Sri Lanka in two weeks (by 29 October).

But neither has the war ended there nor have the MPs resigned,’ the actor-politician said in a release here.

‘While India wants to retain its hold in South Asia by helping Sri Lanka with arms, Sri Lanka would use the same against innocent Tamils in the name of war against LTTE.’

And neither would India ask Sri Lanka to stop the attacks. And all this while, the Tamilnadu government would be shedding crocodile tears,’ he said.

As for contributing towards the Sri Lankan Tamils Relief Fund, the DMDK would make its contributions to the district collectors, Vijayakant said.

‘Captain’ Vijayakanth Chennai meeting promises - clean TN

Posted by admin On October - 18 - 2008

In what could well be his bitterest ever attack targetting the DMK government and to a milder extent Ms Jayalalithaa heading the opposition AIADMK, ‘Captain’ Vijayakanth on Saturday said the people of Tamil Nadu had suffered both enough and it was time for his DMDK to usher in change with a clean administration.

“There is corruption everywhere, in every thing. They are looting. Even the present power cut is only to help them take bribes in the darkness. Both of them have indulged in corruption and have slapped bribe cases against each other. Should you still vote for them?” he asked. In what could well be his bitterest ever attack targeting the DMK government and to a milder extent Ms Jayalalithaa heading the opposition AIADMK, ‘Captain’ Vijayakanth on Saturday said the people of Tamil Nadu had suffered both enough and it was time for his DMDK to usher in change with a clean administration.

“There is corruption everywhere, in every thing. They are looting. Even the present power cut is only to help them take bribes in the darkness. Both of them have indulged in corruption and have slapped bribe cases against each other. Should you still vote for them? I promise corruption-free administration so that the people could live in comfort,” the star-politician told a huge youth wing rally held here in connection with the party’s fourth anniversary.

Promising all-round development, equal educational opportunities and jobs, he said, “If the DMDK comes to power, I will remove the power-cuts in just five months. I will not reveal the method now, as they would steal my idea.” He alleged that the ruling party and the government had ‘intimidated’ him. “My party followers and I are not cowards but are like the banana trees that grow even after being chopped,” he said in his spirited speech lustily cheered by the followers.

Turning to the Sri Lankan Tamil issue, Mr Vijayakanth charged chief minister M. Karunanidhi of indifference towards the tragic plight of the Tamils. “I had donated Rs.6 lakh for the tsunami relief here but gave Rs.12 lakh for the tsunami work in Sri Lanka. Has anyone in these two parties given any such help? Can you throw away your government on this Lankan Tamil issue and face the election?” Pointing to the DMK government’s ambitious free-TV scheme, he said priorities were misplaced. “Why gift a colour TV when there is no power at home?” He asked his followers to ensure that the party won all the 40 seats in the coming LS polls and win power at the next state elections. “Is it an ordinary achievement that we have now 27 per cent votes within just three years after launching the party?”

DMDK set to rock city

The props and plans are all ready in a larger-than-life manner for the first youth conference of the DMDK to be held here tomorrow.

And all of them confirm that Vijayakanth is at heart, an actor: A 10,000 member security team to monitor the rally and conference activities, a ‘commando force’ with walkie-talkies all over the city to ensure that vehicles coming from different parts of Tamilnadu reach the venue on time, a team of 100 doctors with ambulances to take care of ‘any emergency situation’.
And other things to be mentioned include a 145-feet long stage replicating the Secretariat and Parliament, colourful digital banners all over the city challenging those of the DMK and the AIADMK and a 200-feet Vijayakanth portrait by artist Dakshinamoorthy, who, by the way, is attempting a Guinness record through this .

Meanwhile, it is expected that a few important resolutions would be passed at the meeting by DMDK president Vijayakanth, who is aiming at showing his party’s strength and to score a few brownie points through the much publicised conference.

DMDK sources said that the party’s stand on forging an alliance for the forthcoming Parliamentary polls would be made clear at the conference.

Also, a massive rally has been planned from Chepauk to the conference venue, Island grounds, in the afternoon. DMDK youth wing leader and Vijayakanth’s brother-in-law L K Sudeesh would lead the rally which will be witnessed by the party leaders from a special stage erected near the Manroe statue.

It is to be noted that Vijayakanth recently alleged that the ruling DMK was trying to put obstacles in the run up to the conference by directing private bus operators to return the advances received by them.

‘We have booked private buses across the State to transport party workers for the conference. But the operators are returning the advance paid by us following threats from the State government’, he charged.

He said well grown parties like the DMK should be a role model for the growth of new parties like the DMDK. ‘The DMK should advise the new parties to grow instead of trying to destroy them’.

Vijayakanth said the party cadres were eagerly looking forward to the conference.He sought the cooperation of the Transport department and the police for the successful conduct of the conference, being organised to commemorate the party’s fourth founding day and Anna’s birth centenary also.

Politician Vijayakantha dons cop’s role in reel life


Chennai: A good cop who fights terrorism and it's impact on the youth — that's what Captain Vijayakanth is doing these days in reel life. His yet-to-be released 150th film is called Arasangam (Government) — a title that perhaps reflects his ultimate political ambition.

"There is no political message in this film. Whatever I have said in the past, I have said in this one too. Maybe I will make another film to give out all my political views and the mistakes of this government," DMDK President and Tamil superstar Vijayakanth says.

As he dances to the drum beats in his film, in real life politics he's getting ready for his next big political challenge —the Lok Sabha elections.

Vijayakanth’s emergence as a strong third force with over eight per cent votes in the last assembly elections has meant that both Jayalalithaa and the DMK are increasingly wary of his party.

But to turn his votes into seats and to fight a Lok Sabha election he needs an ally.

"I have fought alone and I do not want any alliance. Everyone else is speaking about my party and that shows that we are a powerful force," Vijayakantha says.

Staying solo and taking on the villains is easy on screen, but in the real life political battle is a different story, and observers feel Vijayakanth will have to answer the tricky alliance question sooner than later.

Jayalalitha not heir of MGR's legacy: Vijaykanth

Chennai: Actor-turned-politician Vijaykanth has refuted AIADMK chief J. Jayalalitha's claim of being the true heir to the political legacy of former chief minister M.G. Ramachandran and termed her ascent as a mere "accident".

"Jayalalitha emerging as the leader of the AIADMK is an accident," Vijayakanth told reporters near Erode on Monday.

The charismatic actor-turned-politician M.G. Ramachandran - popularly known as MGR - had broken away from DMK and formed the AIADMK in 1972.

"The former chief minister and AIADMK leader (MGR) never declared Jayalalitha as his political heir," said Vijayakanth, who likes to be called as Karuppu (dark) MGR.

He also alleged Jayalalitha - a top actress in her younger days - "had never spent a single rupee for the poor when she was an actress".

"But I have been involved in lot of welfare activities for the past 25 years. I give Rs.50,000 every year to the home for the dumb and deaf at MGR's residence at Ramavaram," said the actor, who is also an MLA and the president of his one-year old MDMK party.

"I never said I am MGR's heir. But I am just following his footsteps like Ekalavya in Mahabharata. He took Dhronacharya as his teacher, MGR is my political guru."

"I want to establish a clean and corruption free government like he did,", he said.

He said the DMDK would contest on its own in the 2009 parliamentary elections and would win all 40 seats in Tamil Nadu and Puducherry.

DMDK’s scheme for visually challenged

launching a life: DMDK president Vijayakant inaugurating a project for visually-challenged persons in Chennai on Sunday. Premalatha Vijayakant is in the picture

CHENNAI: Desiya Murpokku Dravidar Kazhagam leader Vijayakant on Sunday launched ‘Light a Life,’ a project to provide holistic career training to the visually challenged people.

The training will include personality development, conversational English, basics of computer, advanced JAWS (job access with speech) and entrepreneurship training and counselling. It will be given through 60 computer education centres in districts. K. Pandiarajan, observer for the DMDK’s central Chennai unit and the brain behind the project, said that besides professional job registration and support, the project envisaged creation of a venture capital fund for the physically challenged.

“Any candidate with entrepreneurial spirit can draw a capital support ranging from Rs. 25,000 to Rs. 50,000. If three people form a team, they can draw up to Rs. 1 lakh,” he said.

Mr. Vijayakant said the DMDK was the only party in the State to have a separate wing for the physically challenged people. DMDK presidium chairman Panruti S. Ramachandran said the State government was only implementing the schemes envisaged by Mr. Vijayakant.

Mrs. Premalatha Vijayakant gave away identity cards to 300 persons to enable them to undergo the training.

DMDK president Vijayakant at the party’s youth wing rally in Chennai

CHENNAI: The Desiya Murpokku Dravida Kazhagam, led by actor Vijayakanth, has urged the Centre to stop any direct or indirect military assistance to the Sri Lankan army.

In a resolution passed at a youth rally here on Saturday, the DMDK called upon political parties in the State that are part of the Congress-led UPA to withdraw support to the government.

A resolution adopted at the party’s youth wing conference accused the Sri Lankan government of denying food and medicine to innocent Tamils who were being targeted in the name of military offensive.

“They have become refugees in their own country. They are not even able to bury the bodies of those killed in the war.”

The resolution urged the Centre to send food and medicines through the Red Cross or the United Nations.

Another resolution termed the Re. 1 a kg rice scheme a ploy to divert people’s attention from the steep increase in prices of essential commodities.

The AIADMK and the DMK had failed to formulate schemes to augment power supply in the State.

They had never acted with any farsightedness, the resolution said.

The conference called upon the youth to take a pledge against dowry, violence and terrorism.

Earlier, Mr. Vijayakanth viewed the rally from a specially-erected dais near the Munroe Statue on Anna Salai. The Island Grounds, venue of the conference, was bursting at its seams.

DMDK women's wing state-wide protest against price rise

Chennai, Nov 9: Condemning the price rise in the essential commodities as well as the power cut prevailing in Tamil Nadu, the women's wing of DMDK headed by actor-politician Vijayakant would hold a state-wide agitation on November 16.

The agitation would be staged in front of the district collectorates, Vijayakant said in a statement here.

The power crisis had not only denied new employment opportunities but had also led to emplyees of various factories losing their jobs, he said adding small and medium enterprises had been largely affected.

He slammed both the central and state governments for failing to take steps to control the rising prices of essential commodities. - Agencies

Vote for our courage, says DMDK chief

Vujayakant kicks off election campaign

CHENNAI: "Vote for my party candidates and we will ensure you that we will keep the ruling party on its toes on civic issues," Desiya Murpokku Dravida Kazhagam (DMDK) president Vijayakant thundered at a public meeting in the city on Saturday evening, after launching the party's campaign for the upcoming Chennai Corporation byelections. He appealed to voters to encourage the courage and conviction of his candidates in opposing the ruling DMK combine in the elections slated for February 18.

"Vote for the lamp symbol to light up your lives," he said to a massive crowd that had gathered at Shenoy Nagar in Aminjikarai, where the public meeting was arranged. The entire region was awash with lights and the DMDK cadre lit up the skies with firecrackers to accompany their leader's speech. The DMDK's 63 candidates are the major challengers to the ruling DMK combine in the election that would see byelections to 67 wards. The AIADMK-led combine has boycotted the elections. Though polls were announced for 100 of the 155 wards in the city, 33 candidates were declared winners after contestants in their respective wards withdrew.

Mr. Vijayakant pointed out that the Chennai Corporation had suddenly launched an anti-mosquito campaign in the city, so close to the elections. "Much of the fogging operations in the city is done now because of the by-elections," he charged. "Just imagine what would happen if they (ruling party) had no opposition at all in the Corporation council. Who would stand up for your rights?"

Panruti Ramamurthy and other DMDK leaders also spoke. Vijayakant also introduced his party's candidates. The DMDK cadre charged that several autodrivers were reluctant to carry out election campaigns for them. But they insisted that they would take up intensive campaigning in the coming days.

I will do an Obama here: Vijayakanth

News Dated : Times of India,22 Jun 2008

Its Very Old News,But Obama Has Won Now. Our Captain Will Also Prove..

CHENNAI: US presidential hopeful Barack Obama is inspirational not only to his

fellow democrats but also to wannabe chief ministers in Tamil

Actor-politician Vijayakanth, who seeks to bring about a change in state politics from the alternating rule of the DMK and AIADMK, draws a parallel to Obama's march towards the White House to that of his ambitious journey towards Fort St George, the seat of the state government.

"The whites and blacks were at loggerheads for ages. But Obama is going to create history by becoming America's first black President. Isn't that a remarkable change? Likewise, I will also bring about a change in the state. What's needed today is change and it will definitely happen," said Vijayakanth in an interview to The Times of India.

With Tamil Nadu's political scene hotting up in the wake of the PMK's exit from the DMK-led Democratic Progressive Alliance, actor-politician Vijayakanth may grab more political attention as elections draw near.

Even as rumours are agog that both the DMK and the AIADMK camps are wooing him ahead of the Lok Sabha elections,

'Captain,' as he is fondly called by his fans and partymen, chooses to keep his cards close to the chest.

Vijayakanth, founder-president of the three-year-old Desiya Murpokku Dravida Kazhagam (DMDK), exuded confidence that his party would win three to five Lok Sabha seats on its own.

At the same time, he also gave an indication that he was not averse to an electoral tie-up, possibly with the Congress. While a senior Congress leader conceded that the groundwork for an alliance with the DMDK was already prepared and it would align with the Congress 99 %, Vijayakanth's replies showed that he was in no hurry with such alliance plans.

"As of now, I want to contest the elections alone. Unlike in the 2006 Assembly elections, we are adopting a strategy for the Lok Sabha polls by identifying winnable seats and working hard to strengthen our base in those constituencies. I am confident of winning three to five seats on our own. Winning even two Lok Sabha seats will fetch recognition to my party from the Election Commission," he said.

Asked whether he would categorically rule out an alliance for the Lok Sabha polls, he said he had all along been maintaining the stand that he would contest alone.

"This is my stand now. It may change another day," he said. Not denying that he was being sent feelers by various parties including the AIADMK, he said, "I am the bridegroom and I should say whether I like the bride or not." Vijayakanth, who recently opened a party office in New Delhi and called on CPM general secretary Prakash Karat and Congress leader Sheila Dixit, said those were only courtesy calls and he had no ambition to play a role in national politics.

"My target is only the next Assembly election, whether it comes in 2011 or next year. People ridicule me when I say I will become the next chief minister, but every one has a right to make such claims," he said. He also ruled out aligning with his film colleagues, Sarath Kumar and Karthik, who have also launched political outfits of their own.

Turning to his film career, the Tamil film industry's angry young man in the early 80s walked down memory lane, recalling his struggle as an up and coming artiste in the initial days.

The discrimination and step-motherly treatment meted out to 24-year-old Vijayaraj (his original name), who came to Kollywood from Madurai with a dream of making it big in the industry, only strengthened his resolve to achieve his goal.

"I used to sit at a roadside laundry on Dhandapani Street in T Nagar and watch the rich and famous from the film industry passing by," the actor, who had acted in more than 150 films, reminisced. He said he had to struggle in the early days, as many did not want to act with him, and big banner film-makers did not come forward to do films with him.

"There was discrimination even in the food served to us. While heroes and heroines were treated to sumptuous food and fruit juices, we were served only sambar rice or curd rice in packets and tea. The rage that was seething inside made me resolve that I would start my own production company one day and treat everyone alike — from the light boy to the hero. Today, all those working in my company get the same food," he said.

As a hardcore MGR fan, Vijayakanth rued that he never had an opportunity to meet his idol except on a single occasion at a marriage function. "As I was very passionate about Tamil and got to meet Kalaignar (DMK president M Karunanidhi) quite often, I was seen as pro-Kalaignar." However, he was able to win the affection of MGR's wife, Janaki, who gifted him the campaign van used by the late charismatic leader.

Vijayakanth still continues his association with MGR by donating Rs 50,000 every year on his birthday to the school for the speech and hearing impaired functioning in Ramavaram garden.

Teams formed to arrest Vijayakanth!!!!!

CHENNAI: Chennai police have formed five special teams to arrest actor-politician

Vijayakanth and other accused named in the first
information report in connection with
the mob attack on comedian Vadivelu’s house in Saligramam last Sunday. The teams will be headed by Manohar, assistant commissioner of police (Vadapalani), and local inspectors.

Vijaykanth, however, has accused the ruling DMK of framing him and instigating the mob which stoned the comedian’s house. Whether the founder of the fledgling DMDK, who has positioned himself as a political alternative to both Jayalalitha and chief minister M Karunanidhi, gets arrested or not, is uncertain. But the war between the action hero and the comedian has added to the long list of rivalries on which politics in Tamil Nadu has thrived.

“We have interrogated actor Vadivelu, based on his complaint. Security guard Chintamani and manager Velusamy did not notice the registration numbers of two-wheelers used by the attackers. We have interrogated at least 30 people including several neighbours, vendors and autorickshaw drivers, who witnessed the incident. Most of them told us that they can identify the attackers if they were paraded before them,” a senior police officer said.

The special teams have been assigned to probe all possible angles. Three of the teams have been instructed to pursue the arrest of the named and unnamed accused listed in the first information report. “Since Vijayakanth has been named as the first accused in the FIR, we are looking for him, as he has been booked under the non-bailable Section 307 (attempt to murder) and 506 (II) (threatening to murder), apart from other sections of Indian Penal Code,” the police officer said.

Meanwhile, the political spat between the Kollywood actors had its violent echo in the textile town of Coimbatore as the DMDK labour wing office came under attack on Tuesday afternoon. Six members of a Hindu Makkal Katchi faction, which supported comedian Vadivelu, allegedly went on the rampage at the DMDK labour wing office at Sungam.

Led by the district president of the Hindu Makkal Katchi, Anbu Mari, the group pulled down the thatched shed of the parking lot, burnt the party flag and damaged the furniture and name board of the DMDK office.

Within minutes, the police control room alerted the Singanallur police, who launched a search for Anbu Mari and his supporters. As the police cornered Anbu Mari, he and three others surrendered at the police station. Two more surrendered later.

According to the police inspector, R Srinivasulu, the group allegedly attacked the DMDK office as some of the members of that party had telephonically threatened Anbu Mari for issuing statements in support of Vadivelu.

Anbu Mari is said to have lodged a complaint against the DMDK members at the Peelamedu police station. However, as he was “unhappy” with the police action, he staged a dharna on Tuesday morning. After the protest dharna, Anbu Mari allegedly went straight to the DMDK office and launched an attack. All six members of the Hindu Makkal Katchi have been arrested.

Case of attempted murder against Vijayakanth- by Comedian Vadivelu

A case of 'attempted murder' has been registered against DMDK leader and actor Vijayakanth and 30 others at Chennai's Virugambakkam police station on a complaint made by comedian Vadivelu whose Saligramam house and office were stoned by some 30 unidentified persons on Sept.21 (Sunday) morning.

Vadivelu, accompanied by his lawyer, Raja Senthur Pandi, went to the police station soon after the violent incident and lodged the complaint.

In the complaint, Vadivelu alleged that the attack on his house and office had been carried out at the instigation of Vijayakanth

Nine Cr.P.C.Sections under which the case has been registered against Vijayakanth and 30 others are 307 (attempted murder), 502/2 (threatening with dangerous weapons), 448 (trespass), 336 (endangering lives), 147 (causing disturbance to public peace), 148 (intent to kill), 427 (causing damage to property) and 323 (causing injuries).

In addition, Vijayakanth has also been charged under Sec. 120B (conspiracy).

Police Commissioner Sekhar confirmed that Vijayakanth has been charged with attempted murder under Sec. 307.

According to Vadivelu, a big stone fell near his son Subramani in the house. They came out of the house and saw some 20 motorbikes parked in front of the house. Those who threw stones at the house shouted that "...you (Vadivelu) have talked badly about our leader...you cannot live oppose us...we will bomb your house ...burn it..." Vadivelu further said he knew that they were Vijayakanth's men and the attack had been engineered to prevent him (Vadivelu) from going to the Saidapet Magistrate's court where a case against Vijayakanth was to come up for hearing the following day.

DMDK youth wing secretary Sudhish, however, denied the involvement of Vijayakanth's men in the incident. It was a false case foisted on Vijayakanth on instructions from "Tiruchi" (implying Chief Minister Karunanidhi who was at Tiruchi on Sunday). "In the morning the police said the case was registered against 10 men. Later the number increased to 20 and in the night it became 30."

DMDK headquarters secretary Parthasarathy charged that Vijayakanth's men were falsely implicated when actually DMK men were behind the attack. The DMK could not digest the fact that Marxist leaders met Vijayakanth and held talks with him

கட்டுரை : 'விஜய'காந்த் தலைமை

நான் ஆட்சிக்கு வந்தால் லஞ்சத்தை ஒழிப்பேன். ஏழை எளிய மக்களுக்கு அடிப்படை வசதிகளை செய்து கொடுப்பேன் என்று சொல்லி தேசிய முற்போக்கு திராவிட கழகம் என்ற கட்சியை ஆரம்பித்த நடிகர் விஜயகாந்த் தற்பொழுது தமிழகத்தை கலக்கிக் கொண்டு இருக்கிறார். தனித்துப் போட்டியிட்ட தங்கள் கட்சி தி.மு.க. அ.தி.மு.க.வை விட மக்கள் மனதில் நம்பர் ஒன்றாக இருக்கும் கட்சி என்று அக்கட்சியின் அவைத்தலைவர் பண்ருட்டி ராமச்சந்திரன் கூறி இருக்கிறார். உண்மையில் தே.மு.தி.க. தமிழகத்தில் பெரிய கட்சியாக வளர வாய்ப்பு இருக்கிறதா என்று கட்சி சார்ந்தவர்கள், கட்சி சாராதவர்கள், நடுநிலைவாதிகளிடம் கேட்டோம்.

பாராட்ட வேண்டிய முன்னேற்றம் என்று தமிழக முதல்வர் கருணாநிதி என்று தனது வாயால் சொன்னாரோ அது ஒன்றே தே.மு.தி..க.விற்கு கிடைத்த பெரிய வெற்றி. அவர் எந்த ஒரு கட்சியையும் மட்டம் தட்டித் தான் பேசி வந்திருக்கிறார். 600 நாட்களுக்கு முன்பு ஆரம்பித்த ஒரு கட்சியை முதல்வர் கருணாநிதி பாராட்டியிருப்பது இதுவே முதல் முறை. தி.மு.க., அ.தி.மு.க., விற்கு மாற்று சக்தியாக தே.மு.தி.க., வந்துள்ளது. இது மறுக்க முடியாத உண்மை. தே.மு.தி.க. ஏன் வெற்றி பெற்று வளர்ச்சி அடைந்து வருகிறது? அதன் வளர்ச்சிக்கு என்ன காரணம்? ஒரே காரணம் தான் தே.மு.தி.க. தனித்து நிற்கிறது. கூட்டணி என்ற பெயரில் தி.மு.க. அணியிலும், அ.தி.மு.க. அணியிலும் பிற கட்சிகள் சேர்ந்து கொண்டு அவர்கள் செய்யும் லஞ்சம், சுயநலம், முறைகேடு, மிரட்டல், உருட்டல்களை ஆதரித்து போகின்றனர். அதனை தட்டிக் கேட்க மறுக்கிறார்கள். இதனை எல்லாம் தட்டிக் கேட்க யாராவது ஒருவர் வரமாட்டாரா என நடுநிலையாளர்கள் ஏங்கினார்கள். விஜயகாந்த் வந்தார், தட்டிக் கேட்டார், வளர்ச்சி அடைந்து வருகிறார். எங்கள் கட்சி ஆரம்பிக்கும் பொழுது விஜயகாந்த் சொன்னார், இளைஞர்கள் எனது கட்சிக்கு அதிகமாக வர வேண்டும் என்றார். அதன் படித் தான் நடக்கிறது. இளைஞர்கள் எங்கள் கட்சியை ஆதரிப்பதோடு, அர்ப்பாட்டமாக வரவேற்கிறார்கள். தே.மு.தி.க. கடந்த சட்டமன்றத் தேர்தலிலும், இடைத்தேர்தலிலும், உள்ளாட்சித் தேர்தலிலும் தனித்துப் போட்டியிட்டாலும் கட்சி வளர்ந்து வருகிறது. இனியும் வளர்வோம். 2011ம் ஆண்டு சட்டசபைத் தேர்தலில் தனித்துப் போட்டியிட்டு ஆடசியைப் பிடிப்போம். அதற்காக எங்கள் கட்சியை மேலும் பலப்படுத்துவோம். கட்சியைப் பலப்படுத்த தி.மு.க. அ.தி.மு.க.வை நாடி போக மாட்டோம், மாறாக மக்களிடம் செல்வோம். நடுநிலையான செயல்பாடு தான் தே.மு.தி.க.வை ஆட்சிக்கட்டிலில் உட்கார வைக்கப் போகிறது என்கிறார் தே.மு.தி.க.வின் ஒன்றியச் செயலாளர் பட்டுராஜன்.

நடிகர் விஜயகாந்த் தலைமையிலான தே.மு.தி.க.வின் வளர்ச்சி பிரமிப்பாகவே இருக்கிறது. தமிழ் நாட்டில் சினிமா கவர்ச்சி இருந்தால் ஆட்சியைப் பிடிக்கலாம் என்ற எண்ணத்தை வளரும் தலைமுறைக்கு விஜயகாந்த் உணர்த்தி வருகிறார். இதற்கு முன்பு கருணாநிதி, எம்.ஜி.ஆர், ஜெயலலிதா ஆகியோர் அந்த எண்ணத்தை உரம் போட்டு வளர்த்தும் விட்டனர். எம்.ஜி.ஆர் இப்படித் தான் ஆர்ப்பாட்டமாக வளர்ச்சி அடைந்து வந்தார். அவர் ஆட்சியைப் பிடிக்க அப்பொழுது சாதகமான சூழல் நிலவியது. ஆனால் விஜயகாந்தால் அது சாத்தியமா என்பது கேள்விக் குறி தான். திரையில் மாயஜாலம் காட்டும் நடிகர்களை தமிழ் மக்கள் நம்பியதால் தான் இன்று தமிழ்நாடே ராஜாஜி, ஜீவானந்தம், அண்ணா, கக்கன் போன்ற தலைவர்களின் அரசியல் பாதைகளை மறந்து மோசமான பாதையில் போய்கொண்டு இருக்கிறது.

விஜயகாந்த் தே.மு.தி..க.,வை ஆரம்பித்து 2006ம் ஆண்டு நடைபெற்ற சட்டசபைத் தேர்தலில் 234 தொகுதிகளில் 232 தொகுதிகளில் அவரது கட்சி வேட்பாளர்கள் போட்டியிட்டனர். ஆனால் விஜயகாந்த் மட்டும் தான் வெற்றி பெற்றார். வேட்பாளர்கள் அனைவரும் டெபாசிட் இழந்தனர். ஆனால் டெபாசிட் இழந்தவர்கள் மொத்தம் பெற்ற ஓட்டுக்களின் எண்ணிக்கை 27 லட்சத்து 64 ஆயிரத்து 232. இவை 8. 38 சதவீதம் என்று பத்திரிக்கைகள் சொல்லின. தற்பொழுது நடைபெற்ற மதுரை சட்டமன்றத் இடைத் தேர்தலில் 17,394 ஓட்டுக்களை வாங்கியது. இது கடந்த சட்டமன்றத் தேர்தலில் அவரது கட்சி பெற்ற ஓட்டுக்களை விட 5300 ஓட்டுக்கள் அதிகம். அதே போல உள்ளாட்சித் தேர்தலில் எந்த சிற்றுறாட்சி, நகராட்சி, பேரூராட்சி, மாநகராட்சியையும் தே.மு.தி.க.வினர் கைபற்றா விட்டாலும், அதன் வார்டு தேர்தல்களில் பிரதான கட்சிகளில் வெற்றி பெற்று இருக்கிறார்கள். இவை எல்லாம் தே.மு.தி.க.வின் வளர்ச்சியை காட்டுகிறது. அதில் மாற்றமே இல்லை.

தே.மு.தி.க.வின் முக்கிய சாதனை அக்கட்சியை சரியாக வழி நடத்திச் செல்வது. கட்சி ஆரம்பித்து சட்டமன்றத் தேர்தலை சந்தித்து அதில் தோல்வி கண்டாலும், உள்ளாட்சித் தேர்தலில் அக்கட்சியினர் எழுந்து நிற்கிறார்கள். தி.மு.க., அ.தி.மு.க.விற்கு மாற்று யார் என்ற கேள்விக்கு நான் இருக்கிறேன் என விஜயகாந்த் மார் தட்டுகிறார். இது உண்மையில் யாருக்கு கிடைத்த அடி என்றால் ம.தி.மு.க., பா.ம.க., கம்யூனிஸ்ட்கள் போன்ற இதர கட்சிகளுக்கு கிடைத்த அடி. யோசித்துப் பாருங்கள் தி.மு.க., அ.தி.மு.க.,விற்கு மாற்று யார் என்ற கேள்வியை வைக்கும் பொழுது விஜயகாந்த் என்று உடனே பொது மக்களிடம் இருந்து பதில் கிடைக்கும். இது ஒரு மகத்தான சாதனையே. ஆனால் விஜயகாந்தின் தே.மு.தி.க., ஆட்சியை பிடித்து தமிழகத்தை விஜயகாந்த் ஆட்சி செய்வார் என்பதை எல்லாம் ஏற்கவே முடியாது. நான் பார்த்த அரசியல் வரலாற்றில் விஜயகாந்தைப் போல பலர் வந்தனர். ஆனால் அவர்களால் ஒரு எல்லைக்கு மேல் வளரமுடியவில்லை. பா.ம.க., ம.தி.மு.க. தலித் கட்சிகள் போன்ற கட்சிகளை இதற்கு உதாரணம் சொல்லலாம் என்கிறார் பொது நிர்வாக துறை போராசிரியர் அன்னபூரணி.

நடிகர் விஜயகாந்தின் தே.மு.தி.க., வளர்ச்சி அடைந்து வருகிறது உண்மை தான். ஆனால் இந்த வளர்ச்சி நீண்ட காலம் நிலைத்து இருக்காது. மதுரை இடைத்தேர்தலில் அவரது கட்சி அதிகமாக வெற்றி பெற்றதற்கு காரணம் அவர் கட்சி சார்பில் நிறுத்தப்பட்ட வேட்பாளர் அத்தொகுதியில் வாழும் மெஜாரிட்டி சமூகத்தை சேர்ந்தவர். அதே போல் அ.தி.மு.க., கூட்டணி ஓட்டை விஜயகாந்த் பிரிக்கிறார் என்ற கருத்தை நாங்கள் குப்பைத் தொட்டியில் வீசி எறிகிறோம். தமிழக அரசியலை கொஞ்சம் ஆழமாகப் பாருங்கள். கிட்டத்தட்ட 5 ஆண்டுகளுக்கு மேலாக முக்கியமான கட்சிகள் எல்லாம் கருணாநிதி தலைமையிலான கூட்டணியில் ஒண்டிக் கொண்டு இருக்கிறது. ஆனாலும் அவர்களால் 2006 சட்டமன்றத் தேர்தலில் தி.மு.க. மட்டும் மெஜாரிட்டி பெற முடியவில்லை. அதே வேலையில் அ.தி.மு.க. கூட்டணி தி.மு.க, கூட்டணியை சமாளித்ததோடு, விஜயகாந்தையும் சமாளித்தோம். தமிழக அரசியலில் எந்த எதிர்கட்சியும் பெறாத அளவு அதிக சட்டமன்ற உறுப்பினர்களை இன்று அ.தி.மு.க. வைத்திருக்கிறது. அதே போல் மதுரை மத்திய தொகுதி, உள்ளாட்சி தேர்தலிலும் சமாளித்தோம். தேர்தல் களத்தில் ஒவ்வொரு அ.தி.மு.க., தொண்டனும் தூக்கம், உணவு, உறவுகளை மறந்து உழைத்ததால் வெற்றிகளை பெற்று இருக்கிறோம். ஆனால் தி.மு.க., கூட்டணி கட்சிகளின் தயவில் வெற்றி பெற்று இருக்கிறார்கள். இதே விஜயகாந்த் எங்களோடு சேர்ந்திருந்தால் தி.மு.க., கூட்டணி அம்பேல் தான். தி.மு.க. கூட்டணியில் இருந்து சில கட்சிகள் எங்களோடு விரைவில் இணைய உள்ளது. அந்த மாற்றங்களுக்கு பின் எந்த தேர்தல் வந்தாலும் நாங்கள் தான் வெற்றி பெற போகிறோம். விஜயகாந்த் தனித்தே போட்டியிட்டு ஆட்சியை பிடிப்பது எல்லாம் இங்கு நடக்காத காரியம்.. அவரும் எங்கள் அ.தி.மு.க. அணியில் இணைவதற்கான வாய்ப்புக்கள் இருக்கிறது. சென்னையில் நடந்த உள்ளாட்சி தேர்தலில் ஆளும்கட்சியினர் செய்த வன்முறையில் பாதிக்கப்பட்ட அக்கட்சியினர் எங்களோடு இணக்கமாக இருக்கிறார்கள். விரைவில் அ.தி.மு.க., தே.மு.தி.க., கூட்டணி அமையத் தான் போகிறது. அப்பொழுது கிளம்பும் வெற்றி பட்டாசுகளின் ஒலியை, இன்று அ.தி.மு.க.,வை குறை சொல்பவர்கள் பார்க்கத் தான் போகிறார்கள் என்கிறார் அ.தி.மு.க., சட்டமன்ற உறுப்பினரான சந்திரா.

Mudhalvan Arjun to join Vijayakanth’s DMDK

In Tamil Nadu, politics and pancake seems to go hand in hand. In fact cinema seems to be the first step to reach the political destination for many fledgling politicians. These days the stars are nurturing their dreams of governing Tamil Nadu right from the day of their entry in to the tinsel world. Though this kind of precedence is not set in north India, south seems to be comfortable with it.

Come elections, we would read the news of stars joining different parties and some times two to three parties a day also. Party hopping is an accepted norm here especially when people have short memory. Politicians also appear to understand the clout these people enjoy and are eager to exploit it to their benefit. Whether it is a healthy trend or not, only time would tell.

We had mentioned some time back that Action King Arjun was contemplating joining politics but had not made up his mind about the party to which he would owe his allegiance.

The suspense is over and in all likelihood; he would be joining hands with captain’s DMDK soon. The results of the just declared Madurai by poll and the local body elections in the state clearly indicate that Captain has arrived. Cine stars who were being treated shabbily at the two Dravidian parties are sure to find solace in captain now. Print and the visual media are screaming from their rooftops about the splendid performance of DMDK. In Kollywood, Arjun’s joining with DMDK is certain to usher in a new movement of stars to captain’s territory.

“If responsible position is bestowed upon me, I am ready to join DMDK right away”, Arjun had reportedly told the media. We only hope that Arjun brings to life his Mudhalvan escapades in real life also. Good Luck Arjun.
