The INDIA bloc is predicted to sweep Tamil Nadu Lok Sabha Elections 2024 with a seat tally between 36-39 seats, according to the News18 Mega Exit Poll released on Saturday evening following the culmination of seven-phase voting in general elections.

The neighbouring Union Territory of Puducherry is also predicted to go the Congress way. The lone Puducherry Lok Sabha seat had recorded 77.86% polling. The fight here is between the BJP’s A Namassivayam and Congress MP V Vaithilingam, who is seeking a successive term.


Tamil Nadu, one of the most-talked about states this election, witnessed a three-way race between the BJP-led NDA, the AIADMK and the INDIA bloc comprising the DMK, Congress and other parties.

The state recorded a voter turnout of 72.09% in the Lok Sabha polls held in a single phase on April 19. In 2019, the state had registered 72.44% polling.

While Kallakurichi in northern Tamil Nadu saw the highest voting percentage of 75.67%, Central Chennai recorded 67.35%, the lowest.

The News18 Mega Exit Poll is predicting 1-3 seats for the Bharatiya Janata Party in Tamil Nadu, with the BJP-led National Democratic Alliance also predicted to fall in the same range. The Congress may get 8-10 seats in the state but it is its INDIA bloc ally Dravida Munnetra Kazhagam (DMK) that is tipped to do the heavy lifting for the alliance. The INDIA bloc could get between 36-39 seats in Tamil Nadu. The opposition AIAMDK could be in trouble with the News18 Exit Poll predicting 0-2 seats for the party.
