MDMK shifts camp Is it advantage AIADMK?
With Mr Vaiko walking out of the DMK-led alliance to the AIADMK, Ms Jayalalithaa appears first off the block in the race to the Tamil Nadu Assembly. For the DMK it appears to be a double whammy as now the other allies may demand more seats. But these are early days yet as there are such factors as the minority vote, the small parties and the last-minute swing voters, says RASHEEDA BHAGAT. Mr Vaiko's move will make the coming elections to the Tamil Nadu Assembly a more keenly fought battle.
