Vijayakanth missing at Jaya rally

Chennai, April 6: DMDK leader Vijayakanth, an ally of the Jayalalithaa-led AIADMK-front in the state Assembly polls, kept off the rally organised by Jayalalithaa in Coimbatore today.

The actor-politician is contesting 41 seats in the AIADMK alliance. The DMDK was represented by party presidium chairman Panruti S. Ramachandran.

The rally was supposed to show off the alliance strength of the Opposition front: it was attended by Telugu Desam Party leader N Chandrababu Naidu, CPM leader Prakash Karat, CPI leaders A B Bardhan and D Raja, All India Samathuva Makkal Katchi leader and actor Sarath Kumar, Puthiya Thamizhagam leader, Dr K Krishnaswamy, and other alliance leaders.

There had been a lot of speculation about the two major partners of the alliance – Jayalalithaa and Vijayakanth – appearing on the same dais to canvass for votes. Earlier, when asked about it after the deal was signed between the two parties, Vijayakanth had asked mediapersons to stop worrying about joint campaigns but concentrate on who would win the elections.

Vijayakanth has become the butt of jokes for the DMK-front leaders during electioneering for his ‘unconventional’ method of canvassing which included hitting a candidate of his own party for daring to correct his mentioning the wrong name at a campaign meeting.

DMK star campaigner, comedian Vadivelu has gone around saying that it was his unpredictable behaviour that was coming in the way of a joint campaign with Jayalalithaa.

At the Coimbatore rally today, his party leader Ramachandran said they may not be seen together for the campaigning but would certainly be together after May 13, the day the election results would be out.
