Likely tally in TN: Jaya 110-120 seats, DMK, others in 2 digits

For the first time, Tamil Nadu’s voters have an option apart from voting for the DMK or AIADMK. Also for the first time, they have multiple contenders for the CM’s post.

It could also imply that the BJP’s national leadership had not given up on the DMK returning to power in the state post-poll, and the Centre having to do business with a new government in Fort St George, says N Sathiya Moorthy. Tamil Nadu’s Bharatiya Janata Party leaders had projected it as their campaign launch for the state assembly elections due in May.

N Sathiyamorthy analyses. In campaign mode ahead of her political rivals, like she does every time, Tamil Nadu Chief Minister Jayalalithaa seems to be giving less importance to what could be a ‘unique selling proposition’ according to market mantras. In the public rallies she has addressed so far, there ...

Prohibition returns in TN's election season but it won't be easy to do

‘Both the AIADMK and DMK are promising prohibition, but where is the road map?

In that case it has to endorse Dr Ramadoss as its chief minister candidate, says R Ramasubramanian. It seems the ruling Bharathiya Janata Party at the Centre has lost its plot in Tamil Nadu even before the election process has begun.  Tamil ...
