Tamil Nadu: Jayalalithaa, Vijaykanth join hands to fight DMK

February 25, 2011,Chennai:

Actor-politician Vijaykanth has decided to join hands with Jayalalithaa to take on DMK chief Karunanidhi in the upcoming Assembly polls in Tamil Nadu. The decision came on AIADMK chief Jayalalithaa\'s birthday yesterday.

Vijaykanth\'s six-year-old DMDK, originally formed as an alternative to both the DMK and the AIADMK, had around ten percent vote share in the last Lok Sabha polls.

\"To take a political stand is one thing and to share seats is another. We want to oust the DMK government and that is why we have joined the AIADMK,\" said Panruti Ramachandran, DMDK Presidium Chairman.

Jayalalithaa already has the support of the MDMK, the communists and Pudhiya Tamizhagam. The ruling DMK meanwhile has firmed up its ties with the Congress, the PMK and Viduthalai Chiruthaigal.

With Vijaykanth\'s birthday gift to Jayalalithaa, the alliance arithmetic of the Dravidian arch rivals has turned formidable and clear. As both sides work on the nitty-gritty of number of seats, the political temperature in the state is set to soar.
