About the Discussion
Tamil Nadu’s politics for decades was commandeered by its tallest two leaders - J Jayalalithaa and M Karunanidhi. In their absence, the politics of the state is undergoing significant churn. The AIADMK and the DMK led by E. Palaniswami and MK Stalin respectively will be looking to make a decisive victory to establish their electoral futures. Even as these parties continue to have a stronghold on the state’s politics, the BJP and other smaller parties such as PMK, VCK, DMDM, AMMK look set to make some gains by exploiting the power vacuum at the top. The discussion brings together observers of Tamil politics to shed light on the evolving political situation in the state, the major electoral issues, and the party coalitions that will influence how Tamil Nadu votes in 2021.

The event is held in partnership with Rosa Luxemburg Stiftung (RLS), a German-based foundation working in South Asia and other parts of the world on the subjects of critical social analysis and civic education. It promotes a sovereign, socialist, secular, and democratic social order, and aims at present members of society and decision-makers with alternative approaches to such an order. Research organisations, groups working for self-emancipation, and social activists are supported in their initiatives to develop models that have the potential to deliver social and economic justice.
