Kapu Patriarch To Launch Padayatra For BC Reservations May 27, 2017 18:19

Kapu Patriarch To Launch Padayatra For BC Reservations:- A Padayatra on the issue of Kapu reservations will be launched by Kapu Patriarch, Mudragada Padmanabham, from July 26. Mudragada said the yatra christened as “Chalo Amaravati” would start from his native village of Kirlampudi. The Kapu movement for BC reservations would complete two years on July 26, said the Kapu Patriarch. He further said that the yatra is intended to remind the ruling party to keep its promise of allotting BC status to the Kapus. The government was deliberately sitting on the Manjunath Committee constituted to looking into the issue, said Mudragada. “The committee has completed its tour of 13 districts long ago, but nothing has been done. There was no response even from the Chief Minister even though several letters have been sent.” This only shows the dislike that Chandrababu has for the Kapus. SUPRAJA

BJP To Consult Opposition Parties Over Presidential Candidate : Amit Shah May 27, 2017 17:03

BJP To Consult Opposition Parties Over Presidential Candidate : Amit Shah:- Before deciding on the ruling alliance’s pick for the top constitutional post, BJP President Amit Shah said that his party would consult opposition parties over a joint Presidential candidate. Shah however evaded a query on whether the BJP would seek to build a consensus with the opposition. During an interaction with a news channel, Shah said, “Consensus is a word that is used in several ways. But we hold discussions with everybody, including the opposition parties.” If the BJP-led NDA picks up a nominee with Hindutva leanings, fielding a “secular opposition candidate” is necessary as spoken by parties like the Congress, TMC - led Mamata Banerjee and the Left parties. However, the ruling block is unlikely to be upset with the stand of the opposition parties, as numbers in the presidential electoral college favor it. The BJP Chief said they are yet to decide the names on anyone yet and has refused to speak about likely names from the NDA for the President’s post. He said “We have not decided on any name yet. We will first talk to our NDA allies. Then we will talk to opposition parties.” A total of 11,04,546 votes are there in the electoral college for the presidential polls, with the BJP-led NDA’s tally currently standing at about 5.38 lakh votes. After the YSRCP, the NDA crossed the majority mark in the electoral college. The AP party headed by Jagan Mohan Reddy, announced his outfit’s support for the ruling combine and the TRS, which is power in Telangana, indicated that it will follow suit. The support from both the AIADMK factions is also expected by the BJP. The Presidential election is scheduled in July and the poll to the post of the vice president is scheduled for August. The selection of the Vice President is clearly in the favor of the BJP-led NDA, with the alliance getting the support of 418 members out of 787, the combined strength of the Lok Sabha and the Rajya Sabha.

DMK Leader N. Periasamy Passes Away May 27, 2017 11:20

DMK Leader N. Periasamy Passes Away:- Senior Dravida Munnetra Kazhagam (DMK) District Secretary Tuticorin (South) and former MLA, N. Periasamy (78) passed away at a private hospital in Chennai yesterday due to prolonged illness. The death of Periyasami who was at the party helm for more than three decades, is expected to change the political equations in the southern part of the state, especially Thoothukudi district. He is the father of former DMK Minister and Tuticorin MLA Ms Geetha Jeevan and party functionary N P Jegan. Party working president M.K. Stalin along with leaders including Rajya Sabha MP, R S Barathy placed a wreath on the body of Periasamy. Party president M. Karunanidhi, described the former MLA as “my murattu bakthan”. Periasamy was imprisoned under Maintenance of Internal Security Act (MISA) and later rose to the rank of Tuticorin district in 1985. He took over the southern district at a time when the party had faced a rout in the 1984 elections and suffered defeats in three consecutive Assembly elections at the hands of AIADMK under the charismatic leadership of MGR. Periasamy had served as municipal chairman for the pearl city and won the Thoothukudi Assembly seat in 1989. He was considered very close to MDMK leader Vaiko, but stayed with the parent body when Vaiko walked away from the DMK in 1993. Periyasami remained loyal to Karunanidhi, when the MDMK leader, Vaiko was considered a powerful leader in the erstwhile Tirunelveli district comprising Tirunelveli, Thoothukudi and Virudhunagar. The MDMK leader who contested in Vilathikulam Assembly constituency in Thoothukudi district lost narrowly to the DMK nominee in the 1996 Assembly elections while Periyasami won from Tuticorin for the second time. Vaiko was unable to gain a strong foothold in the district, despite his popularity in the region, strongly guarded by Periyasami. Keeping the leadership with him, Periyasami obtained the ticket for his daughter Geetha Jeevan, who won the Assembly elections in 2006 and was made a minister in the DMK government. In the 2016 Assembly elections too, Geeta turned out to be successful. Stalin, who paid homage to the departed leader said Periyasami’s death is a huge loss not only for Tuticorin district but for the party as a whole. A three day mourning has been announced by the DMK for Periyasami. Vaiko who paid homage to Periyasami recalled his association with the latter for the last three decades. SUPRAJA
