Blog: DMK warring factions unite as problems add up
It's a hectic time ahead for DMK patriarch M Karunanidhi. A feast and welcome for the UPA Presidential nominee Pranab Mukherjee in Chennai on Saturday will be followed by the party's 'jail bharo' agitation on the 4th of next month. The protest to condemn the AIADMK government's alleged vindictive police action against former DMK Ministers, Mr Karunanidhi feels, may unite the warring factions in the party. In his daily column to his party workers, the former Tamil Nadu Chief Minister has exuded confidence that the event will make leaders "sink their differences" and unite against the common enemy. But is this wishful thinking or posturing? Or plain bravado?
