    DMK sets precondition for alliance - The Hindu


    In his concluding address at the 10 State conference of the DMK, party chief M. Karunanidhi was silent on whether more political parties would join the party-led alliance.

    Virtually launching the campaign for the Lok Sabha elections, DMK president M. Karunanidhi on Sunday made it clear that political parties committed to implementing the Sethusamudram project, preventing the emergence of communal forces and protecting social justice alone could be part of the DMK alliance.

    In his concluding address at the 10 State conference of the DMK, he was silent on whether more political parties would join the progressive alliance led by the DMK. All he said was that political parties ready to accept his preconditions could enter the alliance, which he claimed, would win the Lok Sabha polls and enrich democracy in India.

    Even as expectations were high that the conference would indicate the possibility of a rapprochement with the Congress or Vijayakant’s DMDK joining its alliance, the DMK patriarch did not touch upon the issue.

    Amidst applause , the 89-year-old Karunanidhi said the DMK had already entered into an alliance with a few political parties such as Viduthalai Chiruthikal Katchi (VCK), Puthiya Tamizhagam, Manithaneya Makkal Katchi and Indian Union Muslim League.

    The leaders of the parties were present at the conference.

    “The question before us is whether the AIADMK government should be allowed to continue in power, as it has been undoing all the good schemes announced by the DMK government,” Mr. Karunanidhi said.

    Accusing the AIADMK of adopting double standard in the Sethusamudram Project case, he said the people of Tamil Nadu brought upon themselves a great disappointment by voting for the AIADMK in the name of regime change in the State.

    The AIADMK has been indicted by the High Court and the Supreme Court in cases pertaining to Equitable System of Education and the plan to shift the Anna Centenary Library to the DPI complex.

    While the DMK remained a true inheritor of Dravidian values, late Chief Minsiter M.G.R. diluted it by launching the AIADMK.

    “The party today remains a complete anti-thesis to all that the DMK stood for,” he said.
    Rs. 1.01 crore collected

    Mr. Karunanidhi said the conference had contributed to the party fund a total of Rs 1.01 crore after meeting all the conference expenses. He heaped praise on Mr. K. N. Nehru for organising such a huge conference.

    ‘DMK alone can ensure social justice’ - The Hindu

    DMK MP Kanimozhi on Sunday said social justice can be protected only if the DMK alliance, led by party president M. Karunanidhi, wins all the 40 seats in Tamil Nadu and Puducherry in the Lok Sabha polls.

    Addressing the party’s conference, she duly acknowledged the role of party treasurer and her half brother M.K. Stalin’s role, saying that his guidance was equally important in achieving the task.

    She alleged that the ruling AIADMK has always been against reservation since the days of its founder MGR, who gave up his plans to introduce economic criterion only after his party was defeated in the Lok Sabha polls.

    Ms. Kanimozhi said the “permanent” rivalry between the DMK and the AIADMK as described by Chief Minister Jayalalithaa was to protect reservation.

    “The AIADMK has voted against the Mandal Commission recommendation seeking to provide reservation to MBCs. The AIADMK will deprive our children of their rights to education and employment,” she said.

    Another MP Dayanidhi Maran said the crowd present at conference was a clear proof that the DMK alliance would sweep the LS polls. “The dream of Ms. Jayalalithaa to become the Prime Minister will not be realised,” he said.

    No alliance with Congress: DMK - The Hindu


    Stalin calls AIADMK rule a regime of “empty promises”

    Dravida Munnetra Kazhagam treasurer M.K. Stalin on Sunday accused the ruling All India Anna Dravida Munnetra Kazhagam of being a regime of “empty promises” as it never cared to implement any of the promises made to the people.

    Addressing the mammoth State conference of the DMK here, he said the people of Tamil Nadu were desperately looking for elections to the State Assembly along with the forthcoming Lok Sabha polls as they were tired of the AIADMK regime.

    Citing a report of Central Statistical Organisation, he said, the growth of the State had plummeted as it was no longer the destination of investors, he said.

    On alliance for the Lok Sabha polls, Mr. Stalin, who strongly opposed an alliance with the Congress, said the Tiruchi conference had reflected the resolutions adopted in the general council of the party. “The resolution has clearly explained with whom we should have alliance and the parties that should not be included in the alliance,” he said. The general council, adopting a resolution against going with the Congress, decided to contest the Lok Sabha polls in the company of the existing allies.

    http://www.deccanchronicle.com/1402...-finds-dmdks-support-duraimurugans-suspension

    DMK today found support from DMDK in the Tamil Nadu Assembly on the issue of suspension of its leader Duraimurugan, with the main opposition party demanding revocation of the action.

    DMDK whip V Chandrakumar made the plea during a discussion on the budget, which was preceded by the eviction of DMK members on the same issue.

    Earlier, DMK tried to raise the issue but Finance Minister and Leader of the House, O Panneerselvam ruled out any discussion, saying the action against Duraimurugan was taken following the Privileges Commitee recommendation where DMK is also represented and its views heard on the matter.

    However DMK members did not relent and remained standing with some of them trooping near the Speaker's Chair. With his repeated pleas asking them to resume their seats going unheeded, Speaker P Dhanapal directed the Marshals to evict the slogan-shouting DMK MLAs.

    Later, Chandrakumar sought revocation of the action against Duraimurugan.

    Duraimurugan, the party's deputy floor leader, was suspended yesterday for five days by the Speaker following a report by Deputy Speaker and Chairman of the Committee, 'Pollachi' V Jayaraman.

    Municipal Administration Minister K P Munusamy had raised the issue in the Assembly on some remarks by DMK Legislative Party Wing Leader M K Stalin and Duraimurugan during their media interaction in October last. Stalin was let off with a warning.

    DMK is a spent force in TN.

    They are doing all this just to hide the fact that no one is interested in an alliance with them.

    DMK is a regional party which is having hold in Tamil Nadu.

    In Indian Politics, anything can happen and when its about nation then Indian leaders have exhibited their statesmanship and have came above party lines.

    :dude: I m from TN.

    I am sure about you would have read the news about the very recent trouble in the family.

    You would have also read about KK welcoming captain. Plus KK welcoming any power in the center (read BJP-NDA). After which KK went back to Kangroo, where they blantly turned him away.

    Plenty of news on the same are available in the local papers.

    This is KK last ditch effort.

    You should also know that the was part of the central ruling coalition for the past 15 or so years and did loot a plenty, Most of his central ministers are embroiled in some scam or the other.

    I think that recent family trouble is linked to the upcoming elections. DMK has kept options for all open and the recent praising of Jayalalitha for releasing of Rajiv Gandhi killers do show that DMK is open for both UPA and NDA.
