Tamil Nadu BJP president and party candidate from coimbatore seat K Annamalai said the time of Dravidian politics was over and accused the ruling DMK and AIADMK of spending Rs 1,000 crore in Coimbatore to influence voters. Annamalai made the remark after casting his vote at Uthupatti polling booth in Karur village on Friday.

Expressing confidence of a "historic result" for the NDA on June 4, the IPS officer-turned-politician said the BJP would see an increase in vote share in Tamil Nadu.

Annamalai, whose fiery speeches during campaigning have managed to keep the BJP in the limelight in the state, said, "People of Tamil Nadu are with PM Modi. In Karnataka, we are expecting a clean sweep this time. The BJP will be the number one party in Telangana... Tamil Nadu this time will deliver a very big resounding result; an increase in vote share... Dravidian politics time is over." In Coimbatore, Annamalai has been pitted against DMK's Ganapathy P Rajkumar and AIADMK's Singai Ramachandran. All 39 seats in Tamil Nadu are voting in the first phase.
