Sethusamudram Update – DMK Strikes!
The Political Drama being played out over the Sethusamudram Project just got hotter! In my previous post I had hoped that DMK’s Karunanidhi would toe the party’s anti-Ram ideology to add a bit of excitement to the goings on. And he has done just that!
“Some say there was a person over 17 lakh years ago. His name was Ram. Do not touch the bridge (Ram Sethu) constructed by him… From which engineering college did he graduate? Is there any proof of this?” Karunanidhi asked.
“Only to prevent the good scheme, they got hold of the name of a person who was supposed to have lived 17 lakh years ago,” he said.
This is, quite literally, god sent for the BJP. Not only has the DMK supremo questioned the existence of Ram, he has also referred to him as a ‘person’, that’s a double whammy! The faith of the Hindus has been questioned, what other reason does a saviour need to take his cause further? Expect more heart-wrenching acts of saving the Hindu faith. Meanwhile, the common follower is left pondering his own beliefs as parties fight for political supremacy.
