Thanksgiving!!!

In between my busy schedule I missed out on an important piece of news. The DMK has announced KPK Kumaran, son of former minister KP Kandasamy, as the party’s nominee for the Rajya Sabha seat vacated by Sarath Kumar after he resigned from the DMK. The DMK’s nominee is likely to win easily given that their alliance commands a majority in the assembly.

KPK Kumaran is an interesting choice. He is a well know industrialist. He recently made news when he sold the ‘Dinakaran’ newspaper to the SUN TV group led by Kalanidhi Maran. The sale immensely helped the SUNTV group gain control of the local newspaper industry. This is probably the primary reason for awarding a political novice like KPK Kumaran with a Rajya Sabha seat. More over, hailing from the prominent Nadar community, his nomination will help DMK win over some of the disgruntled voices in the Nadar community who were upset at Sarath Kumar being denied a ticket to contest the assembly election.

    I also think Kumaran would be a great choice. I studied with him in Guindy Engineering ‘ 87. When I saw the news, I was surprised that somebody I know is in Rajya Sabha. I agree with every bit of description that has been posted on his personality. I wish, that I have his contact email/phone number to personally congratulate him.
    Can somebody help !!!
