Dhinakaran’s AMMK to contest from at least 38 seats of 39 seats in TN
The Amma Makkal Munnetra Kazhagam – the political party launched in the Indian state of Tamil Nadu by T T V Dhinakaran (who was removed from the AIADMK lately) – has announced their candidates for at least 38 seats in the total 39 seats in the state. The lone seat where his party has decided not to contest has been given to its lone ally in the state Social Democratic Party of India.
Though the AMMK is comparatively a new entrant in the political hemisphere of Tamil Nadu, it is expected to perform as better as the traditional parties like the DMK and AIADMK in the state as the structure that has been helping the AIADMK to remain in the top of the political hemisphere of the state for last few decades is now in favour of the new entrant.
Anyway, it is still sceptical that the new entrant is powerful enough to take on its arch rival AIADMK, which has recently increased its strength several folds by entering into a pre-poll alliance with the MDMK, PMK and BJP.
In the previous general election, the AIADMK grabbed at least 37 of the 39 seats in the state. However, it is less likely that the AIADMK will repeat the past. Unfortunately, the present AIADMK is not that powerful as the past. The main difference between the past and the present is in the past the party had a legendary leader J Jayalalithaa for guidance, but now it lacks that.
