This election is an important one for Tamil Nadu as this is the first assembly poll to happen without the towering presence of titans M Karunanidhi and J Jayalalithaa. The results this time around will reveal if AIADMK can stand on its own in the absence of “Amma” and whether Karunanidhi’s son Stalin has been able to inherit the wide following of his father.
