T.N.’s electoral battleground has been open to alternative players for 25 years
By Thehindu 23-Apr-2019
Senior leaders of the AIADMK and the DMK privately concede this. Over the past 25 years, G.K. Moopanar, Vaiko and Vijayakant were among those who sought to project themselves as alternative forces to the two established players. They had polled some votes, but could not emerge as winners, more so in the parliamentary elections.
DMK and AIADMK leaders argue that the same may hold good for the AMMK and the MNM, though they will end up splitting votes.
P. Ramajayam, Assistant Professor, Bharathidasan University and political commentator, says neither the AMMK nor the MNM has disowned Dravidian political discourse. “The two parties do not seem to be different in any way from the principal players in terms of their functioning or policies. Yet, they seek to project themselves as alternative forces to the DMK and the AIADMK.”
क्या कांग्रेस का महागठबंधन से अलग रह के चुनाव लड़ने की वजह से बीजेपी को पूर्ण बहुमत मिला है?
