The ruling by the Madras high court on 20 September 2017 extending its stay on conduct of a floor test in Tamil Nadu assembly till further orders is one more twist and turn in the sordid drama taking place in the quest for political power in the Tamilnadu Assembly between various contenders including the party in power at the centre.

Dear friends, I warmly welcome all of you to this important consultation.
Every day there is some news or other about scams, black money, illegal mining, violation of human rights, and other such things. All these are confirming again and again that people do not have any control over their lives and their future. It is the big corporate houses that control every aspect of the economy and polity through their political parties and their representatives in the legislatures, parliament, cabinet and other institutions.
