BJP, despite registering a resounding victory in the national polls, could not do well in Tamil Nadu where it had forged an alliance with the ruling AIADMK. AIADMK led Alliance of which BJP was a part lost 37 seats out the 38 Lok Sabha seat. With Panneerselvam’s son, P Raveendranath was the lone winner from Theni constituency.
DMK who led the Secular Progressive Alliance of which Congress, communist parties, Vaiko’s MDMK and Dalit outfit VCK were a part, had won 37 of the 38 Parliamentary seats that went to polls in Tamil Nadu.
