Here is what Poll of Polls Predicts in Tamil Nadu:
While several parties are in the fray in Tamil Nadu, the main contest is between the ruling AIADMK and DMK. While AIADMK contested the 2021 Tamil Nadu Assembly election in alliance with the Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP), the DMK had tied up with the Congress.
This is the first time both DMK and AIADMK went to the polls without the backing of their stalwarts K Karunanidhi and J Jayalalitha.
The other two political alliances are the ones led by TTV Dhinakaran under AMMK and the one being headed by actor-turned-politician Kamal Haasan.
