AIADMK loss spells doom to marriage plans
Chennai, May 12 (UNI) It was a double blow to an AIADMK candidate in Tamil Nadu, for whom the defeat at the just-concluded Assembly election meant postponement of his marriage by another five years.
Rama Ramanathan, known as 'kudumi' Ramanathan for knotting his long tresses, was drubbed in the election by the DMK's old war horse Ko Si Mani for the third consecutive time in Kumbakonam.
The 42-year-old bachelor, who made his maiden and only entry into the Legislative Assembly in 1991 as a 27-year-old, resolved to take the marriage vow only after becoming an MLA again under the leadership of AIADMK supremo J Jayalalithaa.
Though he got the chance to contest subsequent Assembly elections in 1996, 2001 and 2006, Ramanathan was not able to get the better of his strong DMK rival.
However, Ramanathan is still firm about his decision to enter wedlock only after first crossing the portals of the Assembly.
Talking to UNI on phone, the 'eligible' bachelor said it was not too late and he would tie the knot after his party won the next poll.
