Tamil Nadu goes to polls on April 6th, with results to be declared on May 2. The high stakes election is set to witness a fight between the two main parties, DMK & AIADMK, and their allies pitted against each other. Kamal Haasan’s Makkal Needhi Maiam, Seeman’s Naam Tamilar Katchi and TTV Dhinakaran’s Amma Makkal Munnetra Kazhagam are some of the other parties in the fray.
