If BJP succeeds in roping in PMK and DMDK within its fold, then there will be a multi-cornered contest in Tamil Nadu.
The AIADMK will be going it alone aiming for all the seats while arch rival DMK will fight the elections with two Muslim parties - MMK and IUML - and two Dalit parties - VCK and PT.
The two left parties, which called off their alliance with the AIADMK Thursday, and the Congress will also be there in the fray.
