BJP's biggest allies found in South, AIADMK may announce coalition alliance today

While reversing a lot in Tamil Nadu politics, many smaller parties, BJP and AIADMK can announce the coalition for the 2019 Lok Sabha elections on Tuesday. BJP and AIADMK will give seats to smaller parties with their respective quota. However, BJP will contest 8 seats. While in Tamil Nadu, Congress has tied up with DMK.

For the Lok Sabha elections, 2019, BJP has kept its kinabas alive and joined the mission of linking new allies together. On Tuesday, one day after the announcement of the alliance with the Shiv Sena in Maharashtra, the National President of the party, Amit Shah, has prepared to join the All India Anna Dravida Munnetra Kazhagam (AIADMK) in Tamil Nadu to contest the elections. In Tamil Nadu, along with BJP, AIADMK, PMK and DMDK, many other parties will join the electoral fray.

BJP President Amit Shah can declare alliance with small parties including AIADMK in Tamil Nadu. Between BJP and AIADMK, seat sharing formula has also been decided. Both the BJP and the AIADMK parties will also get seats from allies to the smaller parties.

Of the total 39 Lok Sabha seats in the state, AIADMK will contest the highest 25 seats. AIADMK will hold seats of TC of GK Vasan from 25 seats of its quota, NRC of N Rangaswamy and K. Krishnaswamy’s PT for parties.

At the same time, 14 seats in BJP quota have come up. Out of these, BJP 8, PMK 3 and DMDK will go to the polls on 3 seats. Apart from this, the sole seat of Puducherry has also been made part of the alliance which can go to PMK’s account.

The political battle of 2019 seems to be very interesting in Tamil Nadu politics. While the DMK has aligned with the Congress, the BJP has formed a strategy to join small parties including AIADMK and join the electoral fray.
