Jayalalithaa s All India Anna Dravida Munnetra Kazhagam too is part of the Front led by the Left parties.
In Tamil Nadu, AIADMK has fielded candidates from 23 out of 39 seats while leaving the rest to alliance partners. Her party had failed to get even a single seat last time, as the DMK-Congress combine had made a clean sweep.
In the past, Jayalalithaa has shared power with the BJP at the Centre. Recently, she had endorsed the candidature of NCP chief Sharad Pawar for the post of prime minister.
