Tamil Nadu poll results: AIADMK celebrates, gloom at Cong and DMK offices

first_imgAs AIADMK on Friday appeared all set for a landslide win in the Tamil Nadu Assembly polls, it was party time for its workers who thronged their leader Jayalalithaa’s residence in Chennai where a jubilant mood prevailed.Bursting of firecrackers and distribution of sweets, besides merry making were the order of the day at Jayalalithaa’s Poes Garden residence as she was leading by 3,000 votes in Srirangam constituency while the party was leading in over 170 seats.In total contrast, the party offices of both Congress and DMK in Chennai wore a deserted look since morning as trends showed they were heading for a rout.While TNCC headquarters Sathyamurthy Bhavan remained shut, a pall of gloom descended at the DMK office Anna Arivalayam.A huge contingent of policemen was posted outside Jayalalithaa’s residence as the 61-year-old leader is all set to become the chief minister for the fourth time in yet another remarkable comeback.High voltage celebrations were witnessed outside Jayalalithaa’s house as overjoyed workers raised slogans in support of AIADMK. Several workers were seen lined up with flower bouquets to greet their leader.Men and women from different age groups were seen exchanging pleasantries even as frenzied workers sporting AIADMK colours attributed overall “discontentment” against DMK especially over the corruption for their party’s showing.- With PTI inputslast_img
