Tamil Nadu has traditionally seen alliances lead by two parties dominating the polls and fight it out amongst themselves. However, 2016 assembly poll is an exception with the entry of People’s Welfare Front – a six party alliance. What impact will this alliance formed in 2015 have on the outcome of the elections? Though, many don’t bet on this alliance coming out victorious in the elections and forming a government, due to the non-consolidated support base across the state, it can spoil the party of either AIADMK or DMK. To discuss the Tamil Nadu elections and the undercurrents Newclick interviewed Srinivasan Ramani, Deputy National Editor, The Hindu. According to him the newly formed six party combine - the People’s Welfare Front is not expected to win the elections, but it will have an impact on the outcome of the elections. “This is the first time you are seeing a viable third front in Tamil Nadu. Even if it is not going to win the elections, it will be a major spoiler,” Ramani points out.

Mamata Banerjee led Trinamool Congress(TMC) is facing a tough fight in West Bengal assembly election. The incidents happened in last five years shows, the TMC government couldn't live up to the aspirations of the people voted it to power. Many of the leaders of the authoritarian government are allegedly involved in scams and corruption issues.The Saradha chitfund scam and Narada Sting operation show the level of corruption in the state.
Newsclick interviewed Dr. Amit Sengupta to discuss issues related to the election. Dr. Sengupta said that, it would be erroneous to assume that TMC would sweep the West Bengal poll. The Left and the Congress giving a good fight to TMC. The general mood amongst the people reflects the TMC government’s failure in policies and governance. The BJP, which gained some votes in the last Lok Sabha election in 2014, doesn’t seem to gain any more this time. He said, there is a muted alliance between TMC and BJP as far as the parliamentary affairs are concerned.

Newsclick interviewed Civil Rights Activist and author Anand Teltumbde on the issues of appropriation of Dr. B.R.Ambedkar by the right wing forces in the country. Teltumbde feels that not only the right wing but most of the ruling parties are trying to do it for the electoral benefits while they have no connection with his ideology or understanding historically. The RSS and views of Baba Saheb on the caste system and Hindu religion are very contradictory.
