It seems even the date of the Tamil New year now depends on the party in
power. Chief Minister Jayalalitha has chosen to undo all the research
and legislation on the date of the New Year that the DMK had gone
through during its regime. B Srikumar has more. Even tradition now
becomes a football for political gamesmanship. Chief Minister J
Jayalalitha has her eyes on the Tamil vote bank... as she celebrated the
Tamil New Year's eve on Friday. Reversing the DMK's legislation and a
fresh political battle breaks out.
