Is DMK behind the attacks?
Tamil Nadu BJP Leader Annamalai should have perhaps avoided using a double entendre when describing a friendly TV interview of DMK scion Udhayanidhi Stalin.
Following his comment, there has been a big hue and cry among Tamil Nadu journalist circles - a lot of them have taken offence at Annamalai's double entendre. It's interesting because Annamalai and a section of journalists in Tamil Nadu have been at loggerheads for more than a year now.
Why do Annamalai and a large section of journalists keep attacking each other? Does it really work for them? Is DMK behind the political attacks using journalists as a front? If so, who is winning? (Hint: It's not DMK)
My colleague Balakumar gives you a good overview of the Annamalai versus journalists saga.
