The surprise visit of an RSS delegation in Anna Arivalayam ~ the headquarters of DMK ~ to meet president MK Stalin started rolling rumour mills of a confused political state of Tamil Nadu on Monday.
The surprise meeting came just after two days of the visit of Andhra chief minister N Chandrababu Naidu, who is on mission to consolidate the anti-BJP parties of the country. The meeting between Stalin and Chandrababu Naidu paved one more step for a grand anti-BJP alliance in the country. The political commentators expressed the view that BJP has not given up the idea of forging an alliance with DMK and may employ all tricks for the same.
The RSS delegation, in a gesture of goodwill ~ handed over a copy of the message to Stalin ~ adopted by the RSS all India meet held at Mumbai condoling the passing away of the DMK patriarch and former chief minister M Karunanidhi.
“We discussed with Stalin the good rapport the Sanghs had with Karunanidhi. While he was the chief minister of the state, he had helped the Sangh organising the pathsanchalan (route march),” said Prof Kumaraswamy after the meeting.
The Sangh leaders also presented Stalin with copies of the speech delivered by RSS chief Dr Mohan Bhagawat during the three-day seminar held at New Delhi, a coffee table book on the Sangh and also some of the Sangh publications. Senior leaders of the DMK~K Ponmudi and TR Balu ~ were also present during the meeting.
Meanwhile, hectic activities are on in the DMK camp to finalise the sharing of the 39 Lok Sabha seats from the state for the upcoming general election. The DMK has already agreed to give the lone seat from Puducherry to the Congress, according to party insiders. Sources in the DMK said that the party would allocate seven Lok Sabha seats from the State to the Congress.
