    Can Modi-Shah pull off a Tripura in Tamil Nadu?




    The duo does not believe in reinventing the wheel and this deadly combo could well have something up their sleeve for Tamil Nadu too.
    --------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------


    CHENNAI: Can the lotus bloom in Tamil Nadu? It’s a question that has gained traction over the past few days, especially after BJP’s stupendous success in the northeast. The party’s victory is more staggering in a state like Tripura, where it has dismantled a communist regime, that reigned supreme for 25 years.


    Had someone foretold this five years ago, people would have laughed it away, as the saffron party had a mere 1.5% vote in the last elections. Despite this, if BJP was able to clinch a win in Tripura, why not Tamil Nadu, where the party has a vote share of around 3%? However, the similarity ends there. Unlike Tripura, in Tamil Nadu, the BJP’s vote share has remained stagnant for decades and peaked only twice in 1998 and 1999, when it came to power at the Centre under A B Vajpayee — but by aligning with the AIADMK or the DMK.

    While the Dravidian parties have since not repeated what they termed a "mistake", even the ‘Modi wave’ at its peak in 2014 could help a BJP-led alliance in the state get only two Lok Sabha seats — one for itself and another for ally PMK. BJP has ambitious leaders who wish to see the party come to power in TN, but have seldom done enough to strengthen it at the ground level — a problem equally faced by another national party, the Congress in Peter Alphonse. Despite lack of cadres, the Congress still has vote strength among the dalits, minorities and linguistic minorities in the state. "While this affinity may not transform into votes in assembly polls for the Congress, because of the grassroots drying up due to past preferences, it still comes alive and gets converted into votes in parliamentary polls. On the contrary, the BJP is seen as an alien party in Tamil Nadu and happens to be a liability in an alliance," said Alphonse.

    Not necessary. Kerala and TN are different ball games. B J P ideology is less subscribed in this part of the equator. Its deep routed Dravidian thoughts in TN and Stringent communism and strong minority pockets in Kerala. Half of Northern Kerala is Muslim stronghold and Communism is the law of land in rest of Northern Kerala. Where as central and south Kerala are dominated by Christians. They need at least support from the Kerala Congress ( there are two different factions both christian controlled ) to have some sort of sprout in Kerala. In T.N. they have no support at all in the existing political set up.
