Party Cadres Psychology

In 2004 Parliament Elections, AIADMK allied with BJP and faced the elections. The party was white washed, loosing all the 39 seats that means AIADMK the ruling party in the state was having 131 seats out of 234 in State, now the result was 0 out of 234.

Ms.Jayalalithaa, changed her policies, the killing of Veerappan and success of Veeranam project (drinking water to Chennai city) gave her some popularity. When the Elections for the State was announced nearly a year, the ADMK cadres know how to pull his party men to work and gain the vote. This was the picture (film “Mattukara Velan” – Cowherd Velan) they painted in the Walls to signify that ADMK (in directly means MGR) is in danger. And another one was from a film “Neerum Nerupum” (Fire and Water) mounted on horse symbolizes the return of MGR.

Look closely 6 men are attacking him; fortunately ADMK was opposed by six parties at that time. When the results were announced ADMK was the opposition party, most politicians believed that AIADMK will be routed like in 1996 elections. But AIADMK got more than 60 seats and DMK 94 (with six party alliances)
