Lok Sabha seats in Tamil Nadu in Election 2019
Tamil Nadu elects its MPs from its 39 Lok Sabha Constituencies. For so long, Tamil Nadu has been the castle of the DMK and AIADMK parties that have their strong roots in the state. For quite some time in the past, only these two parties have been getting as many seats as possible alternatively leaving only a few constituencies for the other parties. This time, the BJP and AIADMK have formed a strong alliance in the state and are facing the elections together. The AIADMK will contest in 34 places this time leaving only 5 constituencies to the BJP.
