Sources have stated that Puthiya Thamizhagam Leader Dr. K. Krishnasamy had said that political parties should behave like responsible parents. When they feel that their son has committed a mistake, they should oppose it. Now, a new trend has emerged. Political parties, instead of analyzing an issue, rush to support it because people have launched a protest. It happened in the case of Jallikattu and then against the hydrocarbon project. They say that farm land should be protected. But they conveniently forget farmers’ suicide.
On the one hand, you want to save local cow breeds and oppose Coca-cola and Pepsi, and on the other, you oppose a local project that may reduce dependability on import of petroleum products. Is it not contradictory on the part of political parties to protect local cow breeds.
He added that "The two Dravidian parties are
responsible for all the problems faced by Tamil Nadu. Whether it is inter-State
river dispute or farmers’ suicide, you cannot evaluate the issues without the
role of the Dravidian parties. Tamil Nadu is more and more isolated in all
national issues. Election after election, people vote either for the DMK or the
Dalit is a pan-Indian identity and is not confined to Tamil Nadu. The word ‘Dravidian’ refers to nationalist identity and the concept itself is a myth. By upholding the Dravidian identity, Dravidian parties are not able to address the problems rampant in society. After the creation of linguistic States, Tamil nationalism has also become a myth.
