The number of women voters for AIADMK has always been high. The minority voting base has been important for the DMK. However, the DMK has received the votes of minorities and women this time around. The division of the party into four factions is perceived as a regression for the AIADMK. For this reason, EdappadiPalaniswami made the abrupt decision to withdraw from the BJP coalition.
The AIADMK's move is being sharply criticized by the DMK, though. In regards to the partnership, the BJP is doubting the legitimacy of the AIADMK. The pro-BJP politicians in the AIADMK are also not happy with Edappadi, which exacerbates the situation. As a result, EdappadiPalaniswami experiences hardships as he is unable to criticize the BJP or chastise the BJP followers of the AIADMK.It is in such an environment that the election results of 4 states have come. Although the BJP is in a miserable position, relegated to the 3rd position in Telangana, the BJP's sweep in the states of Madhya Pradesh, Rajasthan and Chhattisgarh has left the country reeling in surprise.
The results of this election are also considered as a template for the upcoming MP elections. Also, the growth and influence of BJP is also considered to have increased. Will the AIADMK still be firm on its alliance decision in this situation? Or reconsider? With so many "knives" hanging over the heads of several AIADMK leaders, is a non-BJP alliance possible? All the questions arise.Perhaps, if it announces alliance break and has to f0rm re-alliance with BJP, it will be seen as another downslide for AIADMK. So, if the party wants minority votes, it has to keep the BJP aside or if they want BJP's favour, it must be prepared to loose minorities’ votes and AIADMK will not be able to oppose the strong DMK.BJP's massive victory in 4 state elections has started ringing a warning bell for the parties that are pushing the BJP.
What will AIADMK do?
