The ruling AIADMK in Tamil Nadu appears all set to sweep the local body elections, leading in all the 10 corporations and a majority of the municipalities and town panchayats. In Chennai, AIADMK’s mayoral candidate Sadai Duraisamy beat his nearest rival, the DMK’s M Subramanian. “It is the biggest ever victory Chennai has seen. It is an endorsement of Amma’s welfare schemes,” said an elated Duraisamy.
Thanking the voters of Tamil Nadu for giving her party a massive victory in both the by-election to the Trichy-West constituency and the local body elections, chief minister J Jayalalithaa said, “We are going to see a prosperous Tamil Nadu through good governance and better administration. We will change the state and set an example to others.” She said the results had shown that the people had given a ‘good’ certificate to her governance. “My hard work will continue,” she said.
Of the 125 municipalities, AIADMK has won 88 and DMK 23. Independents managed to grab five, including Bodinayakanur and Anakaputhur. Congress drew nil in municipalities, while DMDK and its ally CPM shared two each. MDMK and BJP won Kulithalai and Nagercoil respectively. Of the 529 town panchayats, the AIADMK won 284 and the DMK 121.
With the AIADMK sweeping the local body elections, leaving a few posts for the rival DMK, the allies of the two Dravidian majors have been swept to the wayside. The biggest loser is Vijayakanth’s DMDK, a former AIADMK ally which enjoys the opposition party status in the state assembly. While the Congress’ performance has been marginally better than the DMDK, the other former DMK allies, the PMK and the VCK, have fared poorly. The performance of the AIADMK’s erstwhile allies, the CPI and the CPM, has also been unremarkable.
The AIADMK and the DMK distanced themselves from their allies and decided to contest on their own. Expectations were that the elections would be a test of the individual strength of these parties, all of which jumped into the fray. The parties were hoping that their individual performances could also provide leverage while bargaining for seats in alliances for the 2014 Lok Sabha elections.
The results also prove that the reach of national parties like the Congress, the BJP and the Left in the state is very limited. Surprisingly, the MDMK has got votes in some pockets. The PMK and the VCK have failed to impress. Analysts pointed out voters were not willing to take risks by voting for these parties as their track record in local body elections have been poor.
It is a lesson for DMk which swept the local body polls in 2006 amid violence and allegations of booth rigging. AIADMK boycotted that election.
For the illegal atrocity done by the DMK in 2006 elections, people have now punished that party by voting for AIADMK with real democratic sense.
Elected members of AIADMK must take the advice of Puratchith thalaivi Amma in redressing the grievances of people and make their wards with cleanliness and set an example to others.
