Jayalalithaa's wait for judicial redress just got longer

The high court verdict on AIADMK chief J Jayalalithaa’s disproportionate assets conviction appeal just got delayed. N Sathiya Moorthy traces the course of the 18-year-old case. With the Supreme Court adjourning the hearing on the twin petitions filed by Dravida Munnetra Kazhagam general secretary K Anbazhagan to March 24, the Karnataka high court might have to wait for more time before pronouncing the verdict on the appeal filed by former Tamil Nadu chief minister Jayalalithaa against her ...

Why AIADMK is in a catch-22 situation

The AIADMK government in Tamil Nadu doesn’t really want to antagonize Karnataka in any way that could have any sort of bearing on the case against party chief Jayalalithaa.

The message from Srirangam

For the AIADMK, winning the Srirangam by-election without Jayalalithaa campaigning for it, and having Panneerselvam as chief minister, is saying a lot in its favour. But again, a year and more is a long time in electoral politics in the country, and more so in Tamil Nadu, says N Sathiya Moorthy.In any other state, the ruling party would often be in jitters while facing a by-election, but not in ‘Dravidian’ Tamil Nadu.Alternating in power since the late 'eighties, the Dravida ...

AAP flexes its muscles in TN but its fights are directionless

Without a strong regional leadership the Aam Aadmi Party in Tamil Nadu may end up as just another political party in the state, says R Ramasubramanian. At a time when the main opposition party in Tamil Nadu, the Dravida Munnetra Kazhagam, is uninterested in street fights with the ruling All India Anna Dravida Munnetra Kazhagam, ferocious protests by the Aam Aadmi Party in the state are puzzling. Over 50 Aam Aadmi Party workers, including nearly 10 women, barged into and sat on a dharna at the ...

Stalin, Tamil Nadu's own Prince Charles

In Tamil Nadu politics, Stalin is often compared to Prince Charles of England, the perennial crown prince anointed to be king one day, but whose time has still not come. Will the 2016 assembly election be his to lead the DMK in? In the case of an electoral alliance, prospective allies would rather accept M Karunanidhi, the war veteran and elder statesman as their leader. It’s more about the age factor, and personal egos of parties. Stalin may then have to wait, at least in the ...
