Chennai, Mar 28 (ANI): Campaigning has gained momentum in Tamil Nadu ahead of April 13 Assembly polls.
Leaders of almost all political parties are making a whirlwind tour of the state to woo the voters.
Meanwhile, the talks are still on between Congress and the Dravida Munnettra Kazhagam (DMK), which has already brought the Pattali Makkal Katchi (PMK) on board.
The DMK is facing the elections in the midst of controversy over the 2G spectrum scam which forced its party nominee A Raja to quit as Telecom Minister.
However, the Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) has fielded 190 candidates. Subramanian Swamy's Janata Party, its ally, is contesting in 10 segments.
Leader of Opposition in Lok Sabha Sushma Swaraj, who is in charge of Tamil Nadu and Kerala, said: "These states may appear to be zero-states for us but we are trying to make a mark."
With the scrutinizing of nominations taking place today, the security arrangements are also being reviewed by the police.
More than 150 companies of paramilitary forces will be deployed in all the districts and additional security will be provided to the sensitive booths.
