DMK has a clear advantage over the AIADMK government in civic polls rural TN
CHENNAI: The DMK and its allies have a clear advantage over the combined combination led by AIADMK in surveys of rural civic agencies in 27 districts, as ballot counting continued for the second consecutive day on Friday.
According to the results officially declared so far by the State Electoral Commission, of the total of 5090 positions of neighborhood members in the panchayat unions, the AIADMK ruler and his allies have won 1,528 neighborhood member positions, while his archdival DMK and parnters accumulated 1,895 positions.
The AIADMK count includes its 1386, 89 DMDK allies and 53 BJP neighborhood member positions and the DMK score covers its 1715, 96 of the Congress party and 60 of CPI and 24 of CPI (M).
The results are expected for the rest of the seats.
From the total of 515 member positions of the district panchayat district, the AIADMK front has successfully emerged in 114 seats (AIADMK 107, BJP 5 and DMDK 2) while the DMK advanced with 157 seats (DMK 141, Congress 8, CPI 7 and CPI (M) 1).
The results declared so far and the trends for the rest of the seats, indicating an advantage for the main opposition, have come as a surprise to the ruling AIADMK, who hoped to repeat his success in recent polls to two constituencies of the Assembly in Tamil Nadu.
Some AIADMK officials believe that the storm of protests after the passage of the Citizenship Amendment Act proved to be a spoiler for them, especially in minority-dominated areas, as the party supported the CAA in Parliament.
The head of AIADMK (coordinator is the main office) and Deputy Chief Minister O Panneerselvam said his party bowed to the verdict of the people regardless of the outcome.
Whatever the results of the survey, we accept and bow to the people's verdict, he said.
The counting of votes for nonpartisan elections to 76,746 positions of members of the village's panchayat neighborhood and 9,624 positions of the village's panchayat president are also underway.
Of the 37 districts in Tamil Nadu, five were recently created and rural civic surveys were conducted in 27 of them.
