Stalin Sweeps Lok Sabha, But Tamil Nadu Remains Elusive as Jaya's AIADMK Finds 'Powerful' Guardian in BJP

It’s a sweep for MK Stalin in the parliamentary polls, but he will be left frustrated in the state assembly as the DMK won only 13 of the 22 constituencies that went to the bypolls. While Stalin has firmly cemented his place as the most powerful leader in a post-J Jayalalithaa and M Karunanidhi Tamil Nadu, his dream to become the chief minister may have to be put on hold at the moment.

The DMK has 97 seats in the assembly along with the Congress and IUML. With the 13 bypoll seats, its number goes to 110 in the 234 member house where the halfway mark is 117. However, the AIADMK has serious internal issues and the defeat in the parliamentary polls will certainly raise problems for chief minister E Palanisamy.
