The parliamentary Lok Sabha elections were held in 7 phases from April 19 to June 1. The votes cast were counted on the 4th and the results announced. In total 40 constituencies in Tamil Nadu and Puducherry DMK. The coalition won.

A.D.M.K. The led coalition did not win a single seat. However, it got 20.46 percent votes. In this case, ADMK for the first time after the election results. General Secretary Edappadi Palaniswami met the media today. Then he categorically stated that he is speaking under the shadow of OPS as his dream did not come true and that there is no alliance with BJP in the 2026 assembly elections as well.

Speaking at a press conference in Salem, ADMK General Secretary Edappadi Palaniswami said, “Prime Minister Modi visited Tamil Nadu 8 times for election campaign. Also, BJP National President JP Nadda, Union Ministers Amit Shah, Rajnath Singh, Nirmala Sitharaman and others came to Tamil Nadu and campaigned in support of NDA candidates.

Similarly DMK and the Chief Minister by supporting the candidates of its allies M. G. Stalin, Minister Udayanidhi Stalin and various ministers toured Tamil Nadu and campaigned. Congress President Rahul Gandhi campaigned in Tamil Nadu by holding public meetings and walking tours.

As far as ADMK is concerned, I am the only one who supported our party candidates and alliance candidates and campaigned all over Tamil Nadu. A.D.M.K. DMDK is in the alliance. General Secretary Premalatha Vijayakanth and other leaders had to campaign intensively in their respective constituencies. A.D.M.K. Various smear campaigns were also carried out against the alliance.

In between all this ADMK In this election, it got one percent more votes than the 2019 Lok Sabha elections. We see this as a victory for ADMK. Those in power at the center and in the state campaigned for other parties. But ADMK The alliance contested the elections without any support and secured more votes in the 2024 Lok Sabha elections than last time.

C.P., who previously contested on behalf of the BJP in the Coimbatore constituency. Annamalai got less votes than Radhakrishnan. If people like Annamalai are in BJP, the party will lose. ADMK identified Annamalai when it was in our alliance. That’s it.

Annamalai is trying to create confusion that there is a problem between SB Velumani and me. There is no confusion in ADMK. There is no split. OPS is speaking in awe because the dream did not come true. There is no alliance with the BJP in the 2026 assembly elections either,” he said.
