In Tamil Nadu, on the one hand, everybody’s eyes are held on the counting of 38 seats in the Lok Sabha elections, while people are also eagerly waiting for the by-elections in 22 assembly constituencies. The results of Tamil Nadu assembly elections are also being considered as important because the political fate of the Palaniswamy Government will also be decided.
The exit poll has been projected to revive the existing central government. According to the exit poll, the opposition DMK-Congress alliance can perform better in the state but good news for the ruling AIADMK may not be possible. The bye-elections have been done on 18th April, 18 of the 22 vacant assembly seats in the state, while the remaining seats have been cast on May 21. The AIADMK should have enough strength to stay in power because the opposition leader and the founder of AMMK TTV Dinakaran have threatened to create problems in Palaniwasami’s stay in power.
In the 234-member assembly, the number of DMK and other allies, including Congress, is currently 97, while AIADMK has 114 MLAs. In such a result, the result of the bye-elections of 22 assembly constituencies can change the picture of the assembly. It is significant that with the counting of votes, results of 38 seats out of 39 Lok Sabha seats in the state will come today. Election of Vellore Parliamentary seat has been canceled due to heavy cash recovered. In the total of 800 Lok Sabha and 406 candidates in the bye-elections, they are trying their luck.
