Industry observers were eagerly awaiting to see whom director-actor Seeman, who had been to jail at least twice in connection with the ‘controversial remarks’ he had made against the Lankan government and in favour of the LTTE, would be supporting in the ensuing State Assembly elections in a few months’ time from now.
Though everyone could guess that Seeman who also heads the ‘Naam Thamizhar’ movement, might not possibly support any party or group in alliance with the ruling Congress at the Centre, it was still unclear whether he would openly oppose the ruling DMK combine in the State.
However on Monday, Seeman met the MDMK chief Vaiko at the latter’s office and announced that he will work in support of the AIADMK alliance in the forthcoming Tamil Nadu State Assembly Elections..
The meeting, arranged reportedly at the behest of the AIADMK leadership with whom MDMK is in alliance, lasted for close to 1 hour after which Seeman met presspersons to inform of his decision to ‘support’ the AIADMK alliance in the coming elections.
The fiery Tamil activist said that the foremost job of him and his organization now is to defeat the “anti-Tamil’ Congress party.
Seeman is also said to have expressed his wish to Vaiko, the MDMK chief, that he should personally consider contesting the Assembly elections instead of opting for the parliamentary elections. Seeman’s meeting and his decision has sent ripples in the industry, most of which automatically supports CM Mr Karunanidhi and his political outfit.
