The DMK , a regional party from Tamilnadu , has won 18 seats in thee Lok sabha elections. The party is demanding 9 ministerial berths. A very high bargain. Half of its MP’s would be occupying the cabinet levels. The issue was the headlines of the National newspapers
What a cheeky ambition! What a tall claim!
The congress , had a long parley with the DMK squad, and finally accepted to give 7 allotments. Half heartedly , the DMK big wigs agreed. Then after deliberation with top leaders, the congress came out with a minor alteration, that of 6 .The DMK refused to accept the new agenda. The parleys worked out a failure . The DMK tracked back to Chennai.
The disposition of this regional party does not have a pleasant significance. There should be a limit to everything. There should be a reason for demand. There should be a rhyme for bargaining.
Rationality escapes man’s mental stature when it is convened by power. The addiction for power, and money is so overwhelming, that the analytical faculty gets effaced. Taking a right abou turn on such issues , makes them a laughing stock,questions their intentions and rummages their credibility.To seek a natinal accredition , the party has to give out a reasonable inclination. Geting into central politics would sharpen their image and they can perform in the mainstream , thus enhancing their image and glory. They could also strenghten their party by and improve their State’s infrastructure,and provide promising projects to Tamilnadu, so that the economy of the state would augument, the finances would shoot up, and the fcilities would have a run.
Ignoring these advantages, the Party has withdrawn from joining the government. The petty thought prevails over the idealitic theory. It is the narrow theme of party that obsoletes the broader perception of the nation. It is the conceited liking for money that has overshadowed the welfare of the people , who have elected them.
It is a collossal loss to the electorate and to the nation. A grim smugly air of disappointment prevails
