GENERAL ELECTION 2009

The Election 2009 results came as a shocker to many as the verdict belied pre-poll premonitions, bringing to throne, the DMK-Congress combine which overcame its incumbency disadvantage and mopped up 28 of the 40 seats in Tamil Nadu and Pondicherry.

The DMK led by K.Karunanidhi won 18 of the 22 seats it contested for, up by 2 seats from the 2004 General Elections. This is the first time that the DMK front has won back-to-back victories in Tamil Nadu in a Lok Sabha election. While Congress took 9 from 16 seats and the rival, AIADMK took 9 of 23, it came as a major setback to the other parties in the state like BJP, PMK, DMDK, MDMK and CPM winning just one seat or none at all this time.

ELECTION 2009 ROUND UP IN TAMIL NADU

PARTY TOTAL SEATS SEATS WON
DMK 22 18
AIADMK 23 9
INC 16 9
BJP 12 0
MDMK 4 1
PMK 7 0
DMDK 39 0
VCK 2 1
CP 6 2

“No one believed Re.1/kg rice was possible and TV sets for free was a joke then. All is a reality within 3 years of DMK ruling,” said a prominent election analyst in the State, explaining the reason for victory of the party. “They had won the confidence of the state with their welfare schemes and their faithful alignment with Congress without wavering has done them good,” he added.

The virtuosity and the glory of the DMK win is heightened by the fact that the DMK was handicapped this time by the loss of four partners from their previous electoral win to the AIADMK front. That the PMK, MDMK, CPI and CPM together could not bring down the DMK’s tally was a victory indeed this election.

Celebrations are abound as DMK leaders and Union Ministers S S Palanimanickam (Thanjavur), T R Baalu (Sriperumbudur), sitting MP A K S Vijayan (Nagapattiam), Adi Sankar(Kallakurichi) and debutant and DMK headquarters Secretary T K S Elangovan (North Chennai) and S R Jayadurai (Tuticorin) won their respective constituencies, hurling DMK to success.

DMK’s spectacular win is highlighted by the results from Madurai where Chief Minister and DMK President M Karunanidhi’s son M K Azhagiri tasted success in his first electoral battle, grabbing the seat which is usually an AIADMK stronghold.

AIADMK supremo J Jayalalithaa’s stratagem of aligning forces with the PMK, the MDMK and the Left failed to work, with just nine of the AIADMK’s 23 candidates winning their seats, one each from MDMK and the Left and the PMK won none of the 7 seats it contested for. The AIADMK suffered shock defeats in Theni, Tirunelveli and Tuticorin – constituencies where Jayalalithaa had previously attracted huge crowds.

While the Communist Party maintained its seat at Coimbatore and Thenkasi from the 2004 elections, it lost out important seats in Madurai and Kanyakumari to DMK contestants, M.K. Azhagiri and J. Helen Davidson, respectively. On the whole, the CPI and CPM could win only one each out of the six they contested.

MDMK leader and pro-LTTE icon Vaiko was wiped out this time and MDMK’s sole consolation victory at Erode was also at the expense of Union minister of state for commerce Elangovan. PMK too suffered a severe setback with all its seven nominees in TN and Puducherry losing out in a verdict that appeared to be a strong indictment of his pre-election crossover from the DMK camp to the AIADMK fold. This election has brought to light PMK founder S Ramadoss as a shrewd tactician whose campaign decisions were guided by the probability of winning.

The surprise element of the elections this time came from the fact that the TN voters had defeated several senior Congressmen, including stalwarts Mani Shankar Aiyar, KV Thangabalu, EVKS Elangovan and R Prabhu. Their only reasons to smile came from sitting MP J M Aaron Rashid (Theni) and N S V Chithan (Dindigul) who retained their seats. Also tasting their maiden success in the polls were Congress candidates P Vishwanathan (Kancheepuram-Reserve), K S Alagiri (Cuddalore), S S Rama Subbu (Tirunelveli) and Manik Tagore, who toppled firebrand MDMK leader Vaiko in the southern Virudhunagar district.

Even Union home minister P Chidambaram barely scraped through in Sivaganga, amidst allegations of corruption, leading to recount and finally a victory by a bare 3600 votes. Another front constituent, VCK leader Thol Thirumavalavan won his seat in Chidambaram, but his colleague lost in Villupuram.

For the DMK, 2009 has not quite been like 2004 where it had a formidable alliance and swept all 40 seats in Tamil Nadu. With most colours of its erstwhile rainbow coalition having run to the Jayalalithaa camp, it is indeed a glorious moment to have kept its ‘rising sun’ from being eclipsed by the ‘two leaves’. Now that they are there, news is out that the DMK is looking to demand for 7 key cabinet seats, retaining IT and Surface transport sectors. It will pitch for Railways or Health or both. The party president, K.Karunanidhi will be meeting Sonia Gandhi at Delhi on Monday to discuss the portfolios.
