Chennai, March 14: Tamil Nadu polls may not be surprising this year too. The opposition may blame Amma's extravagant campaigns and sops for her popularity, but Tamil Nadu rises to just one call of their 'Amma'. True, that none of her campaigns and freebies last long throughout the year pre or post elections, but it is her charisma that cannot be ignored.
POoular poll trackers across the media say the same thing, figuratively. According to NDTV, majority of the 39 seats of Tamil Nadu will be swept by AIADMK, leaving merely anything for the UPA and the NDA.
But for the recent confusions and debates over political alliances in the state, the picture is not yer clear. If BJP finds an alliance in smaller parties like DMDK, PMK and rest, there may be faint chance of NDA baby-stepping into the political scene of Tamil Nadu.
More descriptively, it is assumed that AIADMK may win 27 seats, DMK may be left with 10 and others put together to 2. 45% of the votes are likely to be bagged by AIADMK, DMK may win 18% of the votes. BJP and Congress will have 8% of the votes, each. DMDK may have 4% and others may remain at 7%.
While this is one account by NDTV, a deduction by the Chennai Mathematical Institute's Director Professor Rajeeva Karandikar deduces AIADMK to win 15-23 seats, DMK 7-3, Congress 1-5 and others may win 4-10 seats.
The AAP is likely to get 3% of the votes in the state. The sub-regional parties in the state like PMK, VCK, Left and others are expected to get 1 per cent to 3 per cent votes.
