Opposition parties to strengthen their ranks post- Jayalalitha’s conviction

jayaOpposition parties found an opportunity to strengthen their ranks ahead of the 2016 Assembly polls, with a vacuum created in Tamil Nadu’s political scene following the conviction of Jayalalithaa.

At the forefront is the DMK, the party chief M Karunanidhi is trying to put an order to wake of intra-party squabbles following the 2011 electoral debacle.

“At a time when she was trying to finish off this movement (DMK), when all our comrades were tensed (about it), she herself walked into the trap, and it is a fact that she unwittingly helped in giving a push to this movement,” he said.

He said Jayalalithaa may go for an appeal in the Supreme Court against her conviction, but her aspirations of coming back to power will remain a ‘dream.’

However, the party is still in a Catch-22 situation as the 2G spectrum case, in which Karunanidhi’s daughter Kanimozhi and junior colleague A Raja are accused, hangs like the proverbial Damocles sword.
