Mukherjee was the founder of Jan Sangh, which later became the BJP. In Tamil Nadu, the DMK is looking to remove the AIADMK from power after 10 years. Opinion polls have predicted a big lead for MK Stalin’s party against the AIADMK, which is in alliance with the BJP.

The Union Territory of Puducherry is expected to see a change of guard with the NDA appearing to be ahead of the Congress.
