The DMK has made a new change in Tamilnadu politics by calling the central government as ondriya arasu which has annoyed the BJP.
The DMK party is setting new trends and playing the political game in an understated manner. Political critics feel that a case in point has been the distribution of 14 kinds of food and household products to all the ration cardholders on the occasion of the party’s patriarch, the late M Karunanidhi’s birthday on June 3. It was done without much hype and this went down well with the people at large.
Addressing in a different view
The Dravidian majors have been ruling the state for 50 years. All these years, they have addressed the Centre as Central government (Maththiya Arasu in Tamil). But suddenly, after the DMK assumed power, the Central government is now being referred to as the Union government or Ondriya Arasu in Tamil. This has created shakes at the Centre.
It may seem odd that people from Tamil Nadu are making a big deal and fuss about this change in the way the Central government is being addressed. ‘Union Government’ or ‘Union Minister’ have been in use for a long time. The reality, however, is that these English words are used by English media but the equivalent word such as ‘Ondriya Arasu’ in Tamil was not customarily used by the Tamil media. Instead, they opted for the translated Tamil word such as ‘Maththiya Arasu’ ‘Maiyya Arasu’ or ‘Naduvan Arasu’ to refer to the Central government.
