Rethink Over Strategy in South: Congress Mouthpiece

BeyondHeadlines  News Desk

New Delhi: Congress party is considering a “relook” at their strategy in south.  It blamed the Karunanidhi led Dravida Munnettra Kazhagam (DMK) for the alliance’s drubbing in recently concluded assembly elections in Tamil Nadu.

Bitter Alliance?

The editorial in party’s mouthpiece, Sandesh was vocal enough to declare that it does not want to lose its votes due to “mistakes of its coalition partners”.

The timing of the editorial is crucial as DMK is holding a meeting to discuss future of alliance in the backdrop of his daughter’s bail plea repeatedly rejected in the 2G spectrum scam. DMK patriarch Karunanidhi has openly accused the Congress led governemtn for his daughter’s trail. “My daughter is in jail because of the Centre’s orders or its complacency,” he said.

Sandesh’ editorial said, “The results in Tamil Nadu and Puducherry were affected by the 2G scam and these states were lost to other parties.”

Another article read, “The Congress has to have another look at their strategy in the southern state. It must not lose its vote bank due to the mistakes of its coalition partners,” adding that “a lot of good work done by the ruling party was lost in the public anger against the alleged huge loss to the exchequer being attributed to a DMK minister.”

The crux of the latest issue was that “There is a strong need to revive the fortunes of the party at the grassroots once again.”

There also talks that if DMK withdraws support the government will be saved from forcing Dayanidhi Maran to resign.
