Friday, March 11, 2005 us some mercy!

It seems Yamadevan is facing the same problem Sonia Gandhi is having with K.Karunakaran. I along with many other keralites have unapologetically waited years for this kizhavan to die but it looks like both heaven and hell are scared of the ruccus he'd create there.... he just seems to get more chirpier with age. I hope Oommen Chandy's tough stance works....the useless and puritanical A.K.Antony is more smarter than I thought...he is pleading with the high command for the very people who made his life hell...with Murali and Karunakaran out of the way Chandy is goin to be the numero uno in Kerala and that will plunge him into oblivion(the way i see it these days is antony and karunakaran were playing ball all these years and the two I and A groups they created were just a means to ensure their hegemony in kerala. Antony's able and immensely popular lieutanants-the trio of Chandy, Aryadan and Thiruvanchoor who were the main troubleshooters of the A group seem to have realised the pawns they have been made all these years by him and are keeping their distance these days.

All through the last 4 years the K-Family's brinkmanship has caused the ruling UDF to divert valuable time from development work to solving the never dissidency. I just wish the holy trinity (father, son and daughter) are dumped by the Congress in the same way people trashed them in the last elections. For the last 12 years that I have been closely following Kerala politics I have always hoped of a day when the Congress wins an election with enuf seats to rule by themselves without such corrupt and self-serving allies like the Muslim League and Kerala Congress. In Chandy I saw the man ready to accomplish the task but increasingly I am seeing a man weary of the frequent troubles he has unwittingly fallen into. From being the media's darling he has to skirt the press and is seeing his enimies use them as great weapons in hurting him. I must confess I am a great fan of his despite his alleged shady dealings bcoz we have had enuf of two previous CM' who talked and talked and the other who baulked and baulked. Pinarayi Vijayan's ascendancy in the CPM is a positive change bcoz I hope they will dump their archaic communist philosophy's and adapt progressive measures like the 4th world concept. ...he is by the way another slick-n-shady customer but like Chandy reputed for being an able administrator. I somehow have this feeling that Kerala is going to get into rapid development mode despite the mindless political games our netas play....the rapid growth the Cochin area is witnessing these days gives us all cause to dream. Any takers(all u other states) for an 87 year old octagenarian who is sending the age-old indian tradition of respecting our elders for a toss!

Happened to read this post just now.!! hehe..

Well, I dont think UDF is going to come into power for another 15-20 years minimum!! ( Umman is going to be history after his tenure)

The way things are going i strongly feel, KK is going build another strong coalition just as he build the UDF..If anyone is capable of doing it, its him!!

well u mite be rite abt kk...i am not aware of ground realities as i wuz earlier and depend on mal newspapers on the web to base my opinion.well a man who can paralyze a state and a party for so many years for his son and then for his daughter is never gonna be my "leader". good luck to ur leader and his new party!

In "makkal rashtriyam" KK has been a failure till now. ( Have to wait and see the future). Regarding Murali, I personally feel that he is a good leader. He has the authoritive power, the speech and everything needed for a good leader. But he has a world class leader as his father, that is were the comparisons come and everyone keeps on saying all this becuase of this father bla bla bla. Padmaja, no doubt she is a total waste!!. I cant find fault in KK as such, he tried to bring his son into power who is good in politics. And if you would have noticed, the way Ummans govt treated KK was real bad..

I'm being optimistic about the new party.Jacob and KK have already started discussions...Maybe even Balakrishna Pillai will be included.Maybe RSP also..The only hinderance here is KK's age, If he thatti poku now, everything will be deep shit..haha....Anyways time will say!!.
