Jayalalithaa, whose party All India Anna Dravida Munnetra Kazhagam (AIADMK) always has played a crucial role by being a kingmaker in the Indian parliament, is now being touted by her supporters as a prime ministerial candidate. In another hoarding put up by her supporters, Sri Lankan President Mahinda Rajapakse can be seen kneeling before the Tamil Nadu CM.
Tamil Nadu, which has a not-so-friendly relations with Sri Lanka, has always been opposed to the Indian government's soft stand on Sri Lanka. The words on the hoarding says: “This is how our PM should be. Who can be so, other than our Amma? Think, people!”.
