Sambhar Mafia - Cooked To Kill!

Same News – Different Views

DMK conducted a women’s rally to push for 33 percent reservation for women in the Parliament and State Assemblies. This is how 2 newspapers reported the same:

Calcutta Telegraph: DMK wives hit streets for quota

The women of the DMK’s “first family” today took to the streets of Chennai to try and put more women in the country’s legislatures.

Party president M. Karunanidhi’s wife Rajathi Ammal, his daughter and poet Kanimozhi and daughter-in-law Durga Stalin led a march by the DMK women’s wing to press for 33 per cent reservation for women in Parliament and Assemblies.

None of the three women have ever been in active politics or attended rallies or marches.

The Hindu is silent about the participation of the ‘first family’.

  • I personally think reservation of any kind is bad for democracy.

    What about promotion on merit inside their party ? MK will not answer that questions !

  • @CM,
    the son's atrocities against women are far more significant than the party's atrocities.

    @Venkitu Sir,
    yeah it does. But we can't turn a blind eye

    @Cogito,
    All this is to woo the women vote bank from the ADMK. Are u kidding? How can u expect meritocracy in TN State politics?

  • Politics starts from home, is good. Politics ends at home is bad.

  • Karan,
    It is really bad. the state politics is in the hands of 2 families. the central politics is also not too different.
