Chief ministerial candidate vs. an IIT graduate


The name is Maran, ..., Ilanthirumaran.

The Lok Paritran has hit its campaign trail on a rather ambitious note. 38-year-old Ilanthirumaran, an IIT alumna (sic), is the party's candidate for the Chepauk constituency.

And guess who the former US-based software professional will take head on? None other than DMK chief ministerial candidate M Karunanidhi!

    He will probably feel bored in the Assembly if elected, after all there is hardly anyone with decent intelligence there...

    btw, cool blog.

    Is Lok Pavithran a libertarian party? Then they can't even get their deposits in this elections where color TVs and free rice rule.

    Abhishek: The probability of Ilanthirumaran ever making it to the Assembly is infinitesimal at best, and it is fast approaching zero. Krish is right!

    Also, Abhishek, thanks for those nice words.
