Chennai, April 30(BPNS)
DMK leaders and cadres are in high spirits following almost all the exit polls predicting a landslide for the party led front. It may be noted that the DMK has been out of power for the past ten years and the April 6 elections were a do or die battle for the party.
This is the first assembly election, the DMK has fought after the passing away of its towering leader and former Chief minister M. Karunanidhi. The DMK leaders and cadres are in jubilant mood across the state over the exit poll results released by local channels as well as national channels.
Duraimurugan, party state general secretary while speaking to BPNS said,” Not only the exit polls, the feedback we got from the grass roots across the state have given us clear information that the DMK is coming back to power with a landslide. The results of the exit polls have added to this confidence. People of Tamil Nadu are ready for a change and the feedback we received are to oust the AIADMK regime from the soil of this great state.”
While Times Now-C- voter polls predicted 166 seats for DMK and allies it gave AIADMK and allies only 64 seats with AMMK winning 1 seat, MNM 1 seat and others 2 seats.
India Today, Axis My India survey gave even more seats to the DMK front with 185 seats and the AIADMK allies with 46 seats. AMMK got 2 seats in this poll while MNM received 1 seat.
Republic TV, CNX in its exit poll gave 165 seats to the DMK and allies, while AIADMK and allies were given 63 seats. The AMMK and its allies were given 5 seats by this poll while others got 1.
Today’s Chanakya in its exit poll survey provided DMK and its allies 175 seats while AIADMK led front will get 57 seats.
With all the polls predicting the landslide victory, DMK leaders across the state are happy but the party president MK Stalin has appealed to the cadres not to celebrate the election victory and to celebrate in silence owing to the increasing Covid-19 cases in the state.
M Senthilanthan, DMK, Kanyakumari district secretary while speaking to BPNS said, “We are really happy at the exit poll results but the party cadres and leaders were confident from day 1 that the DMK front is winning the election with a huge majority.”
