Everybody thinks that DMK is anti-Brahmin. But, in reality, Dayanidhi Maran's mother and wife are Brahmins--more specifically, all except his father are Brahmins. That's one of the reasons he was admired even by Cho, a famous anti-DMK and pro-Brahmin.
Now, everybody reports that Dayanidhi Maran will be jailed. But, I think, his "Brahmin" roots will save him through pro-Brahmin media which is more corrupt and racist.
