SOUTH- Visor for Status Quo

SOUTH Visor for Status Quo? ANNADURAI is reported to have recovered sufficiently to assume again his unrivalled and unique position in DMK, and Tamilnad generally, It won't be a moment too soon. The DMK, in many ways, appears to be far more ill than its now recovered supreme leader. This should not bo taken to mean that the mass base of the DMK has been eroded or that the Congress is now on the way back. It is quite likely that DMK will continue to demonstrate its hold over the mind of Tamilnad, at least as against the Congress. But it is also equally likely that it will not be able to register any significant advance either. What is more important is that the unity of the party is not at all as firm as it was and the situation continues to deteriorate. White Annadurai may, on his return, be able to paper over the cracks, it will take much more than charisma to put the party on a sound footing.
