Anbumani Ramadoss takes dig at MK Stalin-KCR meet in Chennai

Stalin’s fear of defeat reason behind meeting: Anbumani.

THOOTHUKUDI: The DMK president, M K Stalin's meeting with the Telangana Chief Minister, Sri K Chandrasekhar Rao, who has been trying to form a 'Federal Front' of non-BJP and non-congress parties to form a new government at the centre, in Chennai on Monday, has occasioned potshots from the PMK, the new ally of the AIADMK in Tamil Nadu in the recent Lok Sabha polls.

The PMK leader, Dr Anbumani Ramadoss, who did not see this as any sudden development as the DMK-Congress combine had “this confusion since its inception”, was today inclined to view this meeting as “failure” of the DMK-Congress alliance.

“The left parties in the DMK-headed secular progressive alliance doing joint campaigns in Tamil Nadu, but strive every nerve to defeat the Congress in the nearby Kerala,” remarked Dr Anbumani here, taking a dig at the DMK-led alliance. He also recalled how the Left parties had declared their opposition to Congress president Rahul Gandhi contesting from Wynad in Kerala. “This is the first political setback for the DMK president,” added Dr Anbumani.

“This meeting stems from Stalin's fear of defeat both in the Lok Sabha elections and in the by-elections for the 22 Assembly seats in Tamil Nadu,” said the PMK leader, campaigning for the AIADMK candidate, P Mohan in Ottapidaram constituency. Mr. Stalin meeting the Telangana CM, a strong political rival of the Congress, was signal that the DMK leader was getting ready to “dump Rahul Gandhi”, the AIADMK minister Mr. Rajendhra Balaji, known for frequently shooting his mouth off, chuckled.
