Interview of the Week

‘I blame Amma for the crisis... She did not create second-rung leaders’

Sasikala was Jayalalithaa’s close confidante but that does not mean she can rule Tamil Nadu, says Ila Ganesan.

Reporters' Diary: Netas go for TV channels

Samajwadi patriarch Mulayam Singh Yadav incidentally started the trend, when the family feud was at its peak.

It seems that the family drama will continue not only through the elections but also after that.

Mulayam’s game, Akhilesh’s bane

Team Akhilesh is now keeping a close watch on the party patriarch’s movements and journalists are not allowed to meet him in Lucknow.

The alliance is surely tied up in knots.
