    Link of the day

    If you've been reading this blog for a while (or indeed other blogs as well!), I'm sure you've wondered "Why on earth does this chap blog?!"


    The adage that there are no permanent enemies in politics has been proved true yet again today. The Congress(I) and the DMK have formed an alliance for the 2004 Lok Sabha polls. The last time the two parties were allies was in 1980. In subsequent elections, the Congress(I) either piggybacked on the AIADMK/ADMK or went alone. After Rajiv Gandhi's assassination by the LTTE in 1991, the Congress(I) became vehemently anti-DMK because of the DMK's support of the LTTE. Evidently Rajiv Gandhi's death was too long ago to matter, even for Sonia Gandhi?

    The situation becomes even more murky because there is a possibility for the MDMK to also be part of the coalition fighting the 'communal' forces. The MDMK broke away from the DMK a few years ago but now their ideologies converge. However several MDMK leaders were indicted by the Jain Commission for their involvement in the conspiracy to assassinate Rajiv Gandhi.

    What next? The BJP allying with VP Singh yet again?
