Local body election in Tamil Nadu

Political parties have started to campaign in the Tamil Nadu  for the local body elections that will be held in two phases on October 6 and October 9 .

The polls are to be held in nine districts of the state — Kancheepuram, Chengalpattu, Vellore, Ranipet, Tiruppatur, Villupuram, Kallakurichi, Tirunelveli and Tenkasi.

It is an important election as the the ruling DMK has to prove that they won the election because of their policies and support and not because of the unhappiness towards the ADMK  who were the ruling party last time.

Chief Minister M.K. Stalin is directly leading the campaign, which is being executed at the grassroots levels by the district office-bearers of the party.

The AIADMK is also active in the fight and with reports coming up of a power feud within the party between Panneerselvam and K. Palanisami. The party, which is in a political alliance with the BJP, is facing tough times following the minority communities coming out against it in several areas of the state.

The PMK has broken its ties with NDA for short time because of issues on the seat allotment of the parties and will contest alone like the The Makkal Needhi Maiam (MNM) and The Desiya Murpokku Dravida Kazhagam (DMDK).
