DMK-led front heads for landslide, ensures T.N. bucks national trend

Bucking the national trend, Tamil Nadu witnessed an anti-Modi wave, with the electorate voting overwhelmingly in favour of the DMK-led Secular Progressive Alliance, which captured/led in 37 of the 38 Lok Sabha constituencies that went to the polls. However, in the Assembly bypolls, the ruling AIADMK put up a strong fight, winning/leading in nine of the 22 seats to secure its government till 2021.
Other players like T.T.V. Dhinakaran’s AMMK, actor Kamal Haasan’s Makkal Needhi Maiam and Seeman’s Naam Tamilar Katchi failed to make inroads, though in some constituencies they polled a sizeable percentage of votes.
Going by the scale of the Opposition’s victory, the results signalled a strong disapproval of Prime Minister Narendra Modi and the BJP, though the party contested only in five seats as a constituent of the coalition led by the AIADMK. The DMK-led front’s victory and lead margins were massive in all but two constituencies – Dharmapuri and Chidambaram.
The AIADMK managed to establish a lead only in Theni, where P. Raveendranath Kumar, son of Deputy Chief Minister and the AIADMK’s coordinator O. Panneerselvam, made his electoral debut against former TNCC president E.V.K.S. Elangovan.
