The political scenario in Tamil Nadu has once again changed following the merger of the two AIADMK factions. City-based observers think that isolating TTV Dinakaran and Sasikala faction is good not only for the party but for the state too.    
 
Many say that the BJP at the centre is behind the merger and that both O Panneerselvam (OPS) and Tamil Nadu chief minister Edappadi K Palaniswami (EPS) have been acting as per the advice of the BJP. 
 
It will be good for the BJP to have this set-up until the next elections. It will have the support of AIADMK MPs in both Lok Sabha and Rajya Sabha. 
 
With this development there are also speculations that the AIADMK and the BJP may face the forthcoming Tamil Nadu elections together. This alliance will help the BJP get a foothold in the state as a strong force to reckon with in the days to come. 
 
The BJP will work to kill any possibility of a mid-term election, for it will bring DMK to power. “DMK in power will be the worst thing to happen for the state,” says political analyst BR Haran, adding that if the BJP is able to maintain this set up until 2021 and if the BJP-AIADMK alliance wins the next assembly elections, it will lead to the end of Dravidian politics in the state.
