J Jayalalithaa riding high on people's favour and Karunanidhi looks like a lost cause
In the Assembly elections, Jayalalitha seems the favourite and DMK has lost its face owing to the association with the 2G scams. People, in exit polls, have fovoured AIADMK, yet there are many who think that DMK might be in with a chance.
THE RESULT of the April 13th Legislative Assembly elections in Tamil Nadu are about to be declared and every one is waiting with bated breath, although the mood of the voters is favouring AIADMK chief J Jayalalithaa.
DMK leader Karunanidhi, who has always won a seat in all the elections that he has participated in, might lose this time, owing to a flurry of scams, which have marred his political career.
Five-time Chief Minister Karunanidhi shocked the nation with his and his family’s association with the biggest scam of the country. This might prove to be the winning reason for J Jayalalithaa. About 75.21 per cent of people who voted for 234 Assembly seats seemed to have made their decision and the wave seems to be in favour of Jayalalithaa.
Merinews, while speaking with some of its Citizen Journalists , could sense the people’s discontent with Karunanidhi and his association with the 2G scam.
Govindan Nampoothiry, a citizen of Tamil Nadu, was quite direct when said that he knew that DMK leader and current chief minister Karunanidhi would lose owing to his involvement with the 2G scams. P. Radhakrishnan, a citizen journalist with Merinews, also voiced the same opinion but he also felt that no party should be in power for more than one term.
Arun David, another citizen journalist felt that AIADMK leader Jayalalithaa is fighting hard for the coveted post and she would earn ‘brownie point over the allegations charged against DMK’. Interestingly, Ganesh was of the view that since both the party leaders are corrupt, hence it doesn’t matter who wins. However, he still feels that the 87-year-old leader might take away the cake this time too.
