Karl Marx arrested

After Queen Elizabeth escaped with anticipatory bail, it is now the turn of Karl Marx. Marx was not as fortunate and was arrested for making a suicide bomb threat. That is revolutionary tactics indeed. The Times of India reports:

DMK state women’s wing secretary Karl Marx (64) was arrested in Thanjavur on Friday for making an inflammatory speech in a close-door meeting at the DMK headquarters on May 19. As per reports that appeared in a section of the media, she had allegedly said she would turn into a human bomb to kill chief minister J Jayalalithaa.

Over the years, Marx has worked at various levels in the party. Only recently she was appointed state secretary of the party’s women’s wing.
