Tamil Nadu assembly election: Where the key political contenders stand

The Tamil Nadu assembly election will essentially be a two-cornered contest between the ruling AIADMK and the DMK

The Tamil Nadu assembly election on 16 May will essentially be a two-cornered contest between the ruling All India Anna Dravida Munnetra Kazhagam (AIADMK) and the Dravida Munnetra Kazhagam (DMK).

The collective vote share of the Dravidian parties has, however, declined over the past decade.

In that scenario, can the Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) mount a credible challenge to the traditional Dravidian parties?

The research team at polls website Electioninindia.com and Mint analyse the comparative positions of major political parties in Tamil Nadu among different social and religious groups and the winning margins in the 2011 assembly election and assembly segments in the 2014 parliamentary election.
