Tamil Nadu: DMK’s Viral Poster Exposes PM Modi’s Scams

It’s election time and Tamil Nadu has emerged as one of the states to watch out for. As the BJP and DMK get set to lock horns, the DMK put out a unique poster taking a dig at Prime Minister Modi and the BJP. The poster depicts PM Modi as a scanner, with “Ji Pay” above and a message – “Please scan and see the scam” below.

If someone uses their phone camera to scan the poster, it reveals supposed scams linked to the BJP. A video circulating on social media demonstrated that scanning “JiPay” brought up allegations like BJP’s involvement in corrupt electoral bonds, irregularities mentioned in the CAG report that is Comptroller and Auditor General of India, supposed corruption in different infrastructure projects, and loans given to big companies.

This poster quickly gained traction online for its witty jab, highlighting the intense competition of the electoral season in the state.

Additionally, the poster encouraged voters to support the India bloc and to oppose the BJP in the upcoming general elections.

The BJP under PM Modi is trying hard to make a headway into Tamil Nadu for the upcoming elections.

The Prime Minister has visited the state 7 times in 2 months, in a bid to woo Tamil voters. He has even started a social media account in Tamil to connect with those who feel the BJP is dominated by Hindi speakers from the north.

However, his efforts are challenged in the south, where voters mostly support regional parties

During the last Lok Sabha elections in 2019, the BJP secured a little more than one-fifth of the seats, winning 29 out of 129, in the five southern states of Andhra Pradesh, Karnataka, Kerala, Tamil Nadu, and Telangana.

In the 2019 Lok Sabha elections, the DMK-led alliance won a landslide victory in Tamil Nadu, securing 38 out of 39 seats. This time around, the DMK is competing for 22 seats across the southern states, while its allies, Congress, are competing for 9 seats, CPI (M) and CPI are each contesting 2 seats, and Viduthalai Chiruthaigal Katchi is also contesting for 2 seats.

The BJP is contesting 23 seats and has formed alliances with nine other parties. The AIADMK, which ended its alliance with the BJP, will be contesting from 34 seats.

Voting for the      polls in Tamil Nadu will take place in a single phase on April 19, 2024.

The outcome of the upcoming polls will be closely watched as it could significantly impact the state’s political direction.
