Is bjp able to gain entry into tamil Nadu?

Tamil Nadu hasn't witnessed a triangular election in recent memory, but on paper, that's what it will witness this friday when 62.3 million voters choose 39 lok sabha seats from 950 candidates. The general consensus seems to be that the Dravida Munnetra Kazhagam (DMK), which controls the state and spearheaded the alliance that secured 38 seats in 2019, will take the majority of the seats. The crucial question is, however, whether the bharatiya janata party (BJP), having waged a vigorous, vocal, and intensive campaign, will be able to convert enough votes into seats and push its former ally, the All india Anna Dravida Munnetra Kazhagam (AIADMK), to second place.

Analysts think the DMK might gain from the triangular race. The DMK is going to benefit from the division of votes. Because the bjp represents a third alternative, the anti-DMK votes will not go totally to the AIADMK or the anti-DMK votes to the DMK. Additionally, the DMK and AIADMK will split the anti-BJP votes, according to political analyst Maalan Narayanan. The majority of opinion polls support this. The india alliance in the southern state will win 30 of the 39 lok sabha seats with a vote share of 51%, while the BJP-led nda will win five seats with a vote share of 13%, according to News18's Mega Opinion Poll. According to a Thanthi tv pre-election study, the india coalition is expected to secure over 30 seats. The Lok Poll projected that the coalition led by the DMK would win all 39 seats, handily.

The bjp received 3.66% of the vote in 2019, the AIADMK received 19.39%, and the DMK received 33.52%. However, as the bjp was a member of the state's alliance led by the AIADMK, the figures don't accurately reflect the party. The bjp has declared its intention to considerably raise this share this time. State bjp president K Annamalai, who is running from Coimbatore, stated recently, "BJP will poll 20% on our own and about 30% along with our allies."
