TN's Rahul Gandhi?
Karti Chidambaram comes across more as a thug rather an educated politician who holds a lot of promise.
In Tamil Nadu, 'son-rises' and sycophancy go hand in hand. So it was no surprise that when Karti, son of Union finance minister P. Chidambaram, had his birthday, hangers-on had posters up in Chennai hailing him as TN's Rahul Gandhi. We don't know whether Karti took it as a compliment, but his political ambitions are certainly no secret. And like other babalog of his ilk, he's not short on fancy ideas. Sample this: "TN needs a new capital, like Putrajaya, the administrative capital of Malaysia." Pray why? Well, Chennai apparently is not a well-planned city. One wonders where Karti was when heritage building Admiralty House and others were demolished last year to make way for the new, monstrous Secretariat building? Coming back to TN's Rahul, the question vexing Chennaiites is, who'll be the state's Priyanka? Well, the DMK boys have no doubts: party chief Karunanidhi's daughter Kanimozhi is "most suited for that honour". (via Outlook)
