The PMK is trying hard to reclaim its vote bank. Whether harping on banning love marriages will have any impact on an urban Vanniyar college student is doubtful. If the last two elections are anything to go by, it is obvious the Vanniyars have moved away from the party. The Thevars have always supported the AIADMK, and the Gounders are split. Will Ramadoss be able to bring them all together?
As things stand, he is persona non grata with the DMK and the AIADMK. He has had bitter fall-outs with both M. Karunanidhi and Jayalalithaa. But nothing lasts forever in politics. There are murmurs that to take on the AIADMK, the DMK, the Congress, the VCK and Captain Vijayakanth's Desiya Murpokku Dravida Kazhagam may come together. In that case, will Jayalalithaa help resurrect the PMK for her own ends? If such an alliance emerges, it would be a worrying and dangerous development.
