"The great thing about democracy is that it gives every voter a chance to do something stupid." -- Art Spander

"There are three kinds of lies: lies, damned lies, and statistics."  -- Benjamin Disraeli

We are TOTALLY confused... 

What to say and what not to say... 

But we will definitely comment the present election scenario, as we are also 'voters' and we 'too' have our own opinion, in the coming days...!

I am not involved or having any type of relationship with any political parties. I think that I don't need to be. ... The present scenario of election campaigns...

Campaigning ends in Tamil Nadu Campaigning for Monday's elections to Tamil Nadu's 234-member assembly ended Saturday with more promises from the AIADMK and DMK, even as the Election Commission pulled up the warring Dravidian parties for violating model code of conduct. 

Unprecedented security for TN polls The EC has issued notice to Jaya TV for telecasting some video-cassettes without prior permission of the committee constituted by the EC, he said. 

No VAT if AIADMK comes to power: Jayalalithaa Tamil Nadu will not implement the Value Added Tax (VAT) system till the Centre incorporates amendments to the VAT Act, Chief Minister and AIADMK supremo Jayalalithaa said today.

Crossing the Rubicon...Tamil Nadu style Over the years, cynical and shameless manipulation of the poor and powerless voters through competitive populism has become the dominant feature of our elections.

This must stop. If the parties have any sense of shame and spirit of public service left in them, they must come together to put an end to this culture of mendicancy. 

Sonia Gandhi lashes out at ‘autocratic’ Jayalalitha “The people of Tamil Nadu are being ruled by AIADMK which is led by an autocratic leader”.

“There are some people who were with us earlier but recently left us”, Sonia said and then questioned: “Why are these people speaking against us now? Why did they not question us then” and then she finally concludes:” It is a sheer opportunism that they represent”.

DMK would quit UPA if MDMK continued: Karunanidhi

Jaya promises free computers to students Jayalalithaa has already promised ten kg of free rice and 4 grams of gold free of cost for mangalsutras of girls belonging to below poverty line families for their marriage.

Tamil Nadu freebies: Who is footing the bill? No Lok Sabha election or assembly election in any state is as quiet as the one happening in Tamil Nadu now. 

Karunanidhi rules out coalition govt in TN "I do not expect that there will be any need for a coalition ministry in the state as there will not be any hung assembly," Karunanidhi.

TN intelligence DIG Sivanandi transferred There have been allegations by the opposition parties that the intelligence wing under the official was involved in activities aimed at helping the ruling AIADMK. 

Sivanandi is the second police officer after R Nataraj, who was transferred as Chennai Police Commissioner earlier for some controversial remarks in praise of Jayalalithaa, to come under the Commission’s scanner.

Indira Gandhi started Self Help Groups, not Jaya: FM SHG scheme is of two types. Under the first type, the entire amount is being given as loan by the nationalised banks and States have no role to play.

In the second type, SHGs are given loans as well as subsidies. While banks grant loans, the Centre sanctions 75 percent of the subsidy. The State Government’s contribution is limited to only 25 percent, he said.

Election Prediction - Astrology: 

...a pamphlet predicting 'landslide' victory of AIADMK based on astrology' was distributed by the 'associates' of S P Velliayangiri, Erode district youth Congress secretary. The leaflet distributed said that Chief Minister J Jayalalithaa will create a history by winning a large number of seats this election. Karunanidhi and the party's deputy general secretary M K Stalin would lose in their own constituencies this time along with some senior Congress leaders... 09-05-2006 Source: News Today

Noted astrologer 'Kaliyur' Narayanan: “However, a neck-to-neck battle will take place, involving a lot of suspense. Ultimately, the ruling Jayalalithaa government will be triumphant. Coalition is ruled out."

Renowned astrologer and numerologist 'Nambungal' Naryanan: “Number eight will prove to be a winner for AIADMK supremo J Jayalalithaa, who will retain her position as the chief minister of the state... Saturn is in Cancer looking at Leo. Ms Jayalalithaa's stars are coming in the second phase of Saturn giving a tremendous boost for her image in the elections, which in turn will spell her victory.” 30-04-2006 Source:
