AIADMK chief Jayalalithaa succeeded to diminish the reign of DMK's supremo M Karunanidhi in Tamil Nadu. The AIADMK leader, who is popularly known as Amma, has taken oath as the new CM of the state on Monday, May 16.
Many people attended the swearing-in ceremony in Chennai but BJP leader and Gujarat CM Narendra Modi's presence might have surprised all. Modi, praising Amma on her massive victory, said, "I have seen her dedication to Tamil Nadu, commitment for the development of Tamil Nadu. So, I am sure she will contribute to a great extent."
Meanwhile, Congress President Sonia Gandhi invited Amma for tea in New Delhi. Congress' courtesy call to AIADMK chief raise many questions - whether Sonia's party will dump their coalition with DMK and will be an ally of AIADMK.
Even Modi's presence in Jayalalithaa's swearing-in ceremony compelled many to raise eyebrows as people started saying - BJP soon may approach AIADMK to empower their strength to fight back Congress in center.
DMK leader, quoted by Times of India, said, "Thalaivar (leader) expressed reservations about Sonia's call to Jayalalithaa. We can understand his feelings. We didn't mind the Prime Minister calling the AIADMK leader. But the political implication of Sonia calling her is different. They have never shared a good relationship. We believe Congress is now opening doors to the AIADMK. In our opinion, they seem to be planning for the 2014 Lok Sabha elections."
Citing this changing political scenario, not only in Tamil Nadu but in the entire nation, experts began speculating that India may soon witness several shocking changes in political parties.
