Karunanidhi's - Double Stand

This is what Mr.Karunanidhi, the Chief Minister of Tamilnadu said today about banning PEPSI and COKE.

Chennai, August 8: Tamil Nadu Chief Minister M Karunanidhi today told the state Assembly that if the Centre imposed a ban on Pepsi and Coke, his government would follow suit.

"The DMK government has always adhered to the policies of the Centre. In this case too, if the Centre implements a ban on Pepsi and Coca Cola, the Tamil Nadu government will follow suit," Karunanidhi said, replying to a question by C Gnanasekaran (Cong.

Isn't he the same person who threatened to pull out of the NDA (Thanks Chakra Sampath) UPA government on the Quota Issue a few months back ?

Why this double stand Mr.Karunanidhi ? Why not take your own decision and ban the colas? Why wait for the Center now ?

PS - To ban or not is another question, which is debatable.

'Double standards' is a wrong word to use.. it is 'multiple standards' and v all know what to expect from MK..

btw, That is UPA govt. and not NDA.

We will do what we say and say what we do. Whether single stand or double stand, we are taking a stand... one day we may take bus stand. TN politics really sucks.

welcome to politics... here double standards are the name of the game. everyone from Bush to Manmohan Singh to MK to Jayalalitha have more than once gone back on their words. Please do not single out MK for treatment because he is just another brick in the wall.

Also, if MK is to listen to everything Mr. Singh has to say, then why do we need a chief minister.
