[Note from the Hindu Vivek Kendra: This is the level of degenaration that a supposedly highly educated and a refined person has allowed politics to degenarate to.]

AIADMK MPs seeking an appointment with Prime Minister Manmohan Singh to press their demand for realignment of the proposed Sethusamudram shipping canal have been kept waiting as concern that coalition partner DMK might be miffed if he met Jayalalithaa's flock seems to be worrying the PM.

The AIADMK parliamentary group was informed on May 13 that the PM would meet the delegation at 11am on that day.
But within minutes, the MPs were told that the appointment had been called off. Since then, the AIADMK group has been waiting for the appointment to be confirmed but there has been no word from PMO.

There could be reasons for the PM to be cautious as previously he had met MDMK chief Vaiko, a bitter political rival of DMK boss M Karunanidhi, setting off a controversy.

Vaiko had come to protest the DMK's bid to split his four-member group in Lok Sabha. While Vaiko and PM enjoy a cordial relationship, the meeting did get Karunanidhi's goat.
