Such violation of the standards of Kovid-19 is happening in Tamil Nadu at a time when Tamil Nadu has reached the fourth position in Corona cases. Every day 4 to 5 thousand cases are coming in the state. Corona in Tamil Nadu has around 6.80 lakh total infected. While the number of dead has reached 10,529.
Next year assembly elections
Assembly elections are due in the state in March-April 2021. AIDMK has been in power in Tamil Nadu for the last two elections. While there is a trend to change the government in every five years. After the demise of the charismatic leader Jayalalithaa, this election is considered very challenging for the AIDMK, which is battling factionalism. DMK will also be in the election field this time without M. Karunanidhi.
