Vijaya T Rajendar’s Latchiya Dravida Munnetra Kazhagam announced its decision to boycott the upcoming 2011 Assembly elections.
His announcement conveyed his party LDMK would not be taking part in the elections this time nor support anyone in the coming elections to the Tamil Nadu Assembly 2011, following Money playing a crucial role in elections these days. And those without it have to stay away. The super hero also commented Polls here are along the lines of a cricket game. The entire process is commercialised a lot. And expressed his concern over the electronic Voting machine recording votes wrongly, (infact he could be correct, two days back the electronic voting machine in the Rajya Sabha recorded the vote of Prime Minister Manmohan Singh wrong twice while he came forward to vote for the bill to change the name of Orissa to ‘Odisha’ and Oriya to Odiya, and he had to use manual slips to get his votes right.Interestingly Even as all the 169 members had cast the vote in support of the bill, the screen read only 147 votes.)
