Parliament, here I come

chidambaram a step ahead

img-april14-4DO you think PC Chidambaram will be out of Parliament 2014? No, as a shrewd politician, he has already envisioned the roadmap of his political journey. The Karnataka Assembly has to elect four Rajya Sabha MPs in June 2014. Congress sources disclose that Chidambaram has been assured a Rajya Sabha ticket from Karnataka. No wonder, he took a consciousdecision not to contest the election from the Sivaganga parliamentary constituency and instead requested the Congress highcommand to allot the seat to his son, Karti. He also knew that he would not be able to win from Sivaganga unless there is an alliance between the Congress and either the DMK or the AIADMK. Kudos to Chidambaram for his forward thinking.
