AIADMK leaders go differently

08, Apr 2018 By shakeel ahmad

Politicians can go to any extent and this was what happened during the protest by the AIADMK leaders in recent days. Although they were full of activity in observance of the hunger strike for a particular cause yet their sheer indulgence in eating and drinking brought before us entirely a different story. A video has made clear everything about their action and thinking.

It has become too definite that far too much is said to women on matters surrounding rape and sexual assault, and not anywhere close to enough is said to the clever politicians on their harsh pretences and duplicity. No matter what politicians think in their smart minds, we see all they maintain in their routine political habits. The recent one has been exposed in their deception nonetheless.

Viral social messages containing some obvious videos have revealed their double standard without a doubt. The ruling party AIADMK members were feasting on biryani, alcohol during one-day long hunger strike convened for setup of the Cauvery Management Board by the government at the centre.

What has been exposed made even the party cadres feel disgraceful? The hunger strike was organised by K Palaniswami, Tamil Nadu chief minister from 8 in the morning to 5 in the evening on April 3. At the time of lunch break, the party leaders were seen indulging in consuming tasty Biryani and drinking intoxicating drinks.

This exposure showed much about politicians’ actual attitude. What they pose towards the people remains greatly different from their thought. This should seem to contradict what the politicians used to react in favour of the masses. They are not quite clear about what they want to prove by their deceptive approach. Was the hunger strike was not meant to be organised morally? The purpose was just but the perception was not up to the standard.
