IITians Party does well in Tamil Nadu Elections

Lok Paritran http://www.lokparitran.org/ started by ex IITians early in 2007, formally contested in the Assembly Elections in Tamil Nadu. Though the party did not win a single seat, their maiden performance is impressive by every count, considering the fact that they had no money or muscle power except the power of “an idea whose time has come”.

Here is the quick analysis for those interested—-

Santhanagopalan in Mylapore constituency was in 3rd position out of 16 contestants; he had polled 9,436 votes and 6.4% of the vote-share; he was ahead of DMDK and Janata Party!

Rajamani in Anna Nagar constituency was in 3rd position out of 14 contestants; he had polled 11,665 votes and 5.38% of the vote-share; he was ahead of DMDK and BJP!
