    The fact is TN doesnt have any tall leader apart from stalin and AIADMK is in the brink of collapse except Dinakaran faction. Since stalin can be trusted than Dinakaran, people have no option but to keep faith in Stalin. His track record as a Mayor in Chennai Coporationn is commendable.

    Fact is ECI performed one of the greatest achievements in this election, whole world wonders. Abt 1,1 crores civil servants worked the whole election work. That is what we call institutions importance of any democracy. India achieves. in 39 day elections (11 April -19 May) process, about 10,00000 polling booths worked with a compliment of 23.3 lacs EVMs, made possible 90 crores people participate in elections. When so how any can trust so called exit polls.. bound to fail.. for some kind of astrological predictions type.. so one needs to discount the exit is some random work, some employment for some unemployed only one may say..ok, in fact no sane man can give any great credence to the exit polls.. so we need need to be sensible. why Modi and Venkayya Naidu clearly says wait May 23rd or 24tth is right think.. No use of any euphoria over exit polls.. just laugh it out, that is my view.
