The scenario at the Tamil Nadu Assembly elections is unpredictable. For the first time in the history of state politics, there is no clear majority visible.
The people's choices may change-depending on freebies and loyalty. However, few say that records will be broken and Tamil Nadu may see the rise of DMK (from the ashes), given that Amma's health is detereorating.
The delayed polling in the two constituencies-Thanjavur and Aravakuruchi-may seal the fate of Tamil Nadu as both the AIADMK and DMK brigade were banking on these. Certainly, AIADMK had won the Thanjavur constituency and DMK had won the Aravakuruchi constituency in 2011.
The alleged cash distribution in these areas may again play a role against both the parties and People's Welfare Alliance (PWA), led by DMDK's Vijayakaaminth is silently hoping that.
Jayalalithaa can bank upon her gold and scooter freebies for women (no wonder there has been a historic turn out of women these elections). She is patient, unlike Stalin, and wants the media to wait for the results. In fact, AIADMK cadres, despite the exit polls and the state's incumbancy histort, remain optimistic.
Stalin on the other hand depends on the persistent attack and the constant negative campaign againt the AIADMK. The silent audience here is People's Welfare Alliance (PWA) that hopes for a hung assembly assembly and a chance of calling the shots.
