Re: 2019 General Elections News and Discussion

In TN BJP joining with ADMK is a big mistake. If they could have gone alone. I am pretty sure BJP can gain another 4-5 seats in the urban constituency. A lot of younger voters will lean BJP for sure.

I will have to say this. So far GOI and IAF have dealt with this whole issue of proving their action in a very professional manner. They have taken this approach which says, "We have stated facts and it is entirely up to you to take it or leave it. We will not waste our time to prove it". ...
