Congress-DMK coalition routed out in Tamil Nadu

[TamilNet, Friday, 13 May 2011, 11:35 GMT]
Leading in 193 constituencies of the 234-seat house, the AIADMK coalition led by J. Jayalalitha sweeps through the Tamil Nadu State Assembly elections in which an unprecedented 80 percent of the voters cast their votes. The DMK-Congress alliance trails behind with a lead only in 39 electorates. Ms. Jayalalitha’s party, leading in more than 130 seats, could comfortably form a government even without the participation of any alliance parties. Jayalalitha, who is generally considered to be honest to her words taking a positive stand towards the struggle of Eezham Tamils in recent times, and Mr. Karunanidhi being in the opposition are helpful for the cause of Eezham Tamils provided the civil society in Tamil Nadu is assertive and vigilant, political observers in Tamil Nadu said.

A ‘developing’ Tamil Nadu would not care for the struggle of Eezham Tamils and Tamil Nadu should not have any qualms over the ‘home made’ solutions in the island are the assertions of Shiv Shankar Menon, the National Security Advisor of New Delhi that was a party to the genocidal war in the island.

Indian mainstream media is yet to recognize the dormant feeling in Tamil Nadu towards the genocide of Eezham Tamils that silently worked against the Congress-DMK coalition.

A Congress stalwart Jayanthi Nadarajan in Tamil Nadu said that the party was “expected to do much, much better […] but we are certainly surprised at the leads that have been shown,” Economic Times reported

To a question whether Congress committed a mistake by contesting over 60 seats, another Congress dignitary Azad who considers the defeat just an anti-incumbency wave, replied in negative and said the party demanded so many seats to “reassert” itself, The Economic Times said.

According to Indian Express, citing Mr. Semmalai, the Organising Secretary of the party, the AIADMK itself is surprised over its victory.
