Hypocrisy has no better Representative...

Karunanidhi has been the most manipulative and cunning politician India has seen till date. Yet, the tamil people seem oblivious to his misdeeds and enjoy their TV shows on their Free TVs.

Nedunchezhiyan left Karunanidhi’s DMK and joined with MGR in 1978, and later even served as Jayalalitha’s Number 2, until his death in 2000....
