HotMachiHot will be keeping track of Poll Promises made by DMK. These were picked from “emeng.pdf” [in Tamil] downloaded from DMK’s website. As and when they are fulfilled, we would date it and mark it as completed. The idea here is have an audit trail for every election promise that DMK made during 2006 Tamil Nadu elections and keep track of its execution [If any].

    This is really a good idea. I dont think any media does this. Most of the media keep telling the people that the memory of the voters is poor. In my opinion, the media themselves are not very good at tracking poll promises. HMH is starting a new trend. Very good.

    3 out of 37? or not yet?

    With 3 pen strokes today, octogenarian MK, the political wizard of Tamilnadu has started the political chess game when nobody noticed that the game has begun. With CPI/CPM/PMK/ML giving unconditional support on his side, he is really kicking Congress out from the coalition if they really want to leave. State Congress is demanding share in power. MK is not giving them. Congress is fuming right now. MK has made a pre-poll deal with Sonia that he is not willing to share power under any cost. We will give you more seats (48) to contest, but don’t expect to join the govt. That is the deal for all the coalition partners like PMK also. If Congress really wants to join MK’s govt, then first kick MDMK ministers from central govt. That is what MK is saying to congress privately. Will Congress do it? JJ is hoping that this alliance will fight and crack and there will be a bye-election for the entire assembly within a year. It might very well happen but not the way she wanted. MK’s 3 pen strokes on poll promises is really a chess game. Instead of cracks in the DPA alliance, CPI/CPM/PMK/ML will not leave DMK under any cost. MK will bring Thirumavalavan back to his fold. Even with the majority MLAs backing him up (~127), MK himself will dissolve the assembly in a year (of his choosing in a Congress generated crisis) and he will face the electorate with some of the poll promises already fulfilled. When it happens, instead of DPA alliance cracking, the vote banks of Congress, AIADMK, and DMDK will crack (because of the partially fulfilled promises) and they will come to the DMK alliance minus Congress. MK will get absolute majority and he need not share power with any other political parties. JJ-Sonia-Vijayakanth coalition will not emerge. Even if it emerges, it cannot beat the DMK/PMK/VC/CPI/CPM alliance especially after the 3 pen strokes today. I really like the political assertiveness of MK/DMK with Sonia’s congress. It all depends upon TN State Congress. If they fight with MK and joined hands with JJ now, Sonia’s congress is finished along with JJ. Way to go MK!!! – Nobody called you the Political Wizard of Tamilnadu for Nothing.

    U matter whatever happens..u support BJP and ADMK..coz their leaders are brahmins..

    Get a hold of reality dudes..can Jayalalitha tell a word against dravidian movement? Can she utter a word against reservation? Fact is TN (even India is following suit now) will always be ruled by anti/Non brahmins...U cannot change that.."Murpagal Seiyin Pirpagal Vizhayum" ..u r reaping the benefits of what your forefathers did to poor dravidians..

    To save the country we got to be united. Currently our politicians are hell bent to keep us divided on caste, religious, or regional lines..

    One day or ther, we have to realize it and save India..

    Our life is temporary (think today is the last day in your life and do something good to others, rather than wasting time on 'inconclusive arguments')

    Blog is a blessing to our time -- hope it helps in unifying India

    -- ANNIYAN


    There's a lot of talk about Dravidan culture etc. Isnt this whole Aryan Dravidan theory a myth propagated by the British? There is no genetic or archeological evidence to support this.
