  • The AIADMK under outgoing chief minister Edappadi K Palaniswami had to put up a decent fight bagging only 66 seats. Its allies PMK nad BJP however, were leading in five and four seats respectively.
  • For the first time, there was no towering presence of two stalwarts, DMK president M. Karunanidhi and AIADMK chief Jayalalithaa.
  • The two communist parties-CPI and CPI(M), secured two seats each allowing VCK (Viduthalai Chiruthaikal Katchi) to win atleast four seats.
  • Other alliances in the contest included MMK (Manithaneya Makkal Katchi), MDMK (Marumalarchi Dravida Munnetra Kazhagam), PMK (Pattali Makkal Katchi), VCK (Vidhuthalai Chiruthaigal Katchi), TVK (Tamizhaga Vazhvurimai Katchi), BJP, AAP, as well as Congress.
  • Now that Congress was an early part of the DMK alliance, it performed outstandingly increasing its presence in the assembly to 17 from a mere eight seats during the previous election in 2016.
  • The DMK’s vote share was 37.7 percent with an impressive performance in regions including southern and northern regions while the AIADMK sliced away 33.4 percent.
  • The State’s Election Commission is yet to declare winners for all the 234 segments after which all the winning constituencies shall be updated soon.
  • Yesterday, for the DMK, it was a dream come true moment and in sync with its election song, “Stalin Thaan vararu”, which meant Stalin is going to become the chief minister.
  • DMK’s major ally the Congress was ahead in 16 seats, VCK in four constituencies and the two left parties in two segments each.
  • In 2006 assembly polls, AIADMK has lost the contest but anyhow managed to bag 61 seats. That following year, DMK won the polling with 96 seats, whereas Congress won 34.
  • But the game took a turning point in the 2016 with AIADMK winning 136 seats, DMK securing only 89 seats, and Congress winning only eight.
  • The prominent winners included the DMK chief MK Stalin himself from Kolathur and his son and party youth wing secretary, Udhayanidhi Stalin from Chepauk-Triplicane.
  • It is announced that MK Stalin will take oath for his Chief Minister post on 7th of May, 2021.
  • Makkal Needhi Maiam Chief Kamal Hassan loses to BJP women’s wing national president Vanathi Srinivasan in Coimbatore South constituency.
  • Kerala’s Left Democratic Front (LDF) won 99 out of the total 140 seats in the assembly, securing a second term in office.
  • Tamil Nadu Chief Minister Edappadi k Palaniswami resigns the post, giving a fresh space for DMK to serve the state of Tamil Nadu.
  • Amid allegations of dynasty politics, DMK strategists made a conscious effort to put Stalin at the centre of its campaign. Some accused him for being in too much hurry to win the post whereas his supporters on his victory consecutively doomed over those accusers and stated that it was his confidence and a good sense of urgency that made him win the contest and that “now the prince has become the king!”
  • People do agree that Stalin’s father Karunanidhi was a great orator, writer, and a national political colossus, but when it comes to Stalin, he loses the capability. They are the spoon-fed steps of his father, that enabled him to climb this wall of victory. It is however, very practical that Stalin didn’t take his inheritance for granted. He put all his wounds over to get this throne that serves the people of Tamil Nadu as well as the Indian civilization.

EXIT POLLS 2021 – West Bengal, Tamil Nadu, Assam, Kerala & Puducherry:

Sponsored Links

The state assembly elections for the states of West Bengal, Tamil Nadu, Assam and Kerala along with elections for the Union Territory of Puducherry were held beginning from March 27th this year and concluded with the end of the eighth phase of voting in West Bengal on April 29th. The counting is to be done soon and the results are expected to be announced on 2nd May 2021. Until the results come out, only speculative results in the form of exit polls will give an indication as to what results we can expect. Exit polls are not accurate by any means and should not be seen as actual results. Let’s have a look at what the exit polls indicate right now.

The scenario in each state is different, firstly, in West Bengal the Mamata Banerjee led Trinamool Congress (TMC) looks to have an edge of Narendra Modi’s Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) in what is turning out to be a closely contested battle for power with different exit polls showing either the BJP or TMC in the lead with no certainty of majority. Secondly, in Assam, BJP looks to sweep the elections over the Congress-AIUDF alliance by winning with clear majority. In Kerala meanwhile, all the exit polls have touted the ruling CPI (M) led left front to end the 40 year trend of voting the incumbent ruling party out of power which would mean a severe blow to the Congress led UDF at the hands of the CPI (M) led LDF.

Down south beside the state of Kerala, Tamil Nadu also had elections conducted in March/April 2021 and the exit polls for Tamil Nadu indicate a crushing victory for the DMK – Congress – Left alliance. Many exit polls are going far enough to daringly predict a complete victory of the alliance over AIADMK. AIADMK is fighting their first elections without their long-time leader late J Jayalalithaa and are on the verge of facing a setback. The DMK led alliance is also without its stalwart leader late M Karunanidhi, this time the alliance led by MK Stalin seeks to return to power in the state after a duration of 10 years.

All the exit polls have only one similarity, a setback for the Indian National Congress (INC) – most exit polls even predict Congress to be wiped out from the UT of Puducherry. The Congress-Left alliance is already relegated to being a minor player after the battle has become a two horse race between the TMC & BJP. Congress also remains a minor player in the DMK alliance in Tamil Nadu as majority of the seats being predicted as wins for DMK alone.

The BJP has received a major confidence high from the fact that after heaving only a measly 10% vote share in West Bengal in 2016 elections in the state, the exit polls now predict BJP getting more than 100 seats with some exit polls even predicting a BJP win. While the BJP may not win, the number of seats they win might be enough to prevent TMC from winning with absolute majority which will definitely unsettle Mamata Banerjee. The exit polls data has been varying from one exit poll to another. Exit poll data has been gathered from the exit polls of Republic-CNX, India News Jan ki Baat, India TV’s People’s Pulse, TimesNow C Voter, ABP News C Voter, News24’s Today’s Chanakya and India Ahead’s ETG Research.

The national ruling NDA’s main force BJP’s national media in-charge Anil Bhaluni said the exit polls are an indication of the party’s strong performances “under the leadership of Narendra Modi will regain power in Assam, is all set to form the government in West Bengal and Puducherry and will increase its support and voter base in Kerala and Tamil Nadu.”

The whole nation awaits with bated breath as the results will be announced on Sunday, all the while there is an ongoing medical crisis in the country due to the Covid-19 pandemic. Stay indoors and stay safe.

2021 West Bengal & Tamil Nadu Elections: Election Commission Bans Victory Rallies

Sponsored Links

In a move that may just be slightly too late, the Election Commission has banned any victory rallies from taking place after the election results are announced on May 2nd. The Election Commission reeled under heavy pressure from the Madras & Calcutta High Courts who have been pressurising the Election Commission to ban all political gatherings due to the worsening state of the pandemic in the country. India has been breaking its own records every day in posting the highest number of positive Covid-19 cases over 24 hours. At the current rate, India is expected to report 4 lakh positive cases in a single day by the end of the first week of May.

The Election Commission (EC) which decided to go ahead with the final and eight phase of the West Bengal Assembly elections to be held on 29th April. The Madras and Calcutta High Courts have reprimanded the EC due to their lack of action regarding political parties holding public rallies and campaigns during trying times of the pandemic with no regard for social distancing or following Covid-19 safety regulations. After the reprimands, the EC released an order stating – “No victory procession after the counting on 2.5.2021 shall be permissible. Not more than two persons shall be allowed to accompany the winning candidate or his/her authorised representative receive the certificate of election from the returning officer concerned.”

Voting has recently concluded in the states of Assam, Kerala, Tamil Nadu and Union Territory of Puducherry. The results of the elections in the above states and UT along with the election results of West Bengal assembly elections are expected to be announced 2nd May onwards.

The Madras High Court on Monday had some sharp comments to dish out towards the Election Commission. The Madras High Court bench said the EC should be trialled on criminal charges as they are putting lives of the citizens at risk during the pandemic. The Madras High Court also directed the EC to submit a detailed report of the procedure and steps taken to maintain Covid-19 protocols else it will suspend the counting process if need be. The EC has been given until 30th April to submit a detailed report on the same to the Madras High Court.

A very sharp rise in positive Covid-19 cases has been observed in poll bound states. The number of cases in Kerala had shot up by 130%, 215% in Assam, 86% in West Bengal and 47% rise in Uttar Pradesh following the aftermath of the Kumbh Mela. All major political parties have been throwing caution to the wind during the crisis caused by the pandemic, at a time when patients are struggling to find beds and oxygen cylinders, the big wigs of political parties are out in the public carrying out public rallies all the while not wearing masks or following Covid-19 protocols themselves. In spite of witnessing these scenes of carelessness, the EC had opted to stay silent on the issue, raised by the High Courts and media. While Covid-19 protocols were left in the dust, thousands of people gathered in hordes to watch and attend the rallies of these leaders. One wonders if the EC could have taken preventive measures which may have helped in keeping the count of infected persons in the poll-bound states to a minimum.

Tamil Nadu to begin its 2021 assembly election polling from April 6 :

Sponsored Links
  • Tamil Nadu Assembly Election began from 12th of March, 2021 following the polling to be held from 6th of April this year in a single phase itself.
  • The major parties standing for the contest are DMK (DravidaMunnetraKazhagam) and AIADMK (All India Anna DravidaMunnetraKazhagam), being the rivals since the year 1967.
  • Last time, when Tamil Nadu conducted its assembly election, both M Karunanidhi and J Jayalalithaa were present. But this is the first when the contest will take place without these both veterans. Jayalalithaa died in December 2016 and Karunanidhi passed away in August 2018.
  • However, there is a possibility of BJP witnessed this year standing as another rival against DMK because the ruling party AIADMK made an ally with the Bhartiya Janata Party.
  • The results for this election shall be announced on May 2, 2021.
  • Tamil Nadu used to follow a pattern of alternating power between the DMK and AIADMK, but Jayalalithaa broke it by re-establishing AIADMK’s rule in the 2016 Assembly election. Jayalalithaa-led AIADMK won 135 seats, whereas DMK won 88.
  • The BJP was not able to win a single seat in the last Assembly election, but due to added pressure on DMK leader MK Stalin and AIADMK’s E Palaniswami, the six remaining seats were won by their allies.
  • Jayalalithaa’s aide VK Sasikala decided to leave the politics last month on March, leaving TTV Dhinakaranto contest the election alone on behalf of Amma MakkalMunnetraKazhagam (AMMK).
  • Actor-politician Kamal Haasan has positioned his party called MakkalNeedhiMaiam(MNM)
  • On the other hand, Actor Rajinikanth also decided to opt out of the political arena.
