Mamata Banerjee: Future CM of West Bengal
Trinamool Congress chief Mamata Banerjee is set to capture power in West Bengal, which has a population of 9.13 crore (91.3 million).
Mamata has in fact emerged as the 'giant killer' for ending the 34-year-old Left front rule in West Bengal. She fought on the single electoral plank of doing away with the 'misrule' of Marxists.
It was a 'Mamata wave' that swept away the Left rule in West Bengal as the Trinamool Congress leader, who floated the party over a decade ago after parting ways with the Congress, proved that she was the most formidable opponent of the Communist Party of India-Marxist.
J Jayalalithaa: Future CM of Tamil Nadu
AIADMK chief J Jayalalithaa is all set to come to power after defeating arch rival DMK. She will rule over nearly 7.2 crore (72 million) people in Tamil Nadu.
Jayalalithaa, who was out in the cold for the last five years in Tamil Nadu and the Centre, had her sweet revenge on Karunanidhi's DMK.
Jayalalithaa's single point campaign plank was to end the "family rule" of the DMK in the backdrop of the 2G spectrum allocation scam.
