Corona-how six South Indian States Tamil Nadu Andhra Pradesh Telangana Karnataka Kerala Puducherry leadership handled this pandemic.

Needless to compare with nine Hindi heartland states. Certainly one major factor however emerges.

That is six southern states ruled by six different political parties like ADMK CPM BJP Congress. TRS YSRC. In the month of April when pandemic was in peak totally walked well with Prime Minister Narendra Modi.

But all six fallen out in early May month the team spirit got split. As Centre began to receive communications for huge grants in aid -funds-release of food grains. But as an Observer of Tamil Nadu from the spectrum of Capital New Delhi this writer gets a feel.

That ADMK government led by Edapati Palanisamy done extremely well. In nutshell to describe him. Corona has thrown out new leaders in Southern parts of India.

Especially Edapati and Jagan Reddy. Let us turn to real politics. Out of six three states will go for their assembly poll early next year.

Tamil Nadu Kerala and Puducherry. Certainly opposition parties in these three states are much stronger.

With their Organisations. DMK in Tamil Nadu. Congress in Kerala. Corona is anx will be an election issue. It may surpass corruption issue.

Major political players like Rajnikant Kamal Hassan are spoilers for both ruling ADMK and opposition DMK. In short if this writer has to describe Tamilians have forgotten Jayalalitha and Karunanidhi. It is a sad commentary. Reason being emergence of MK Stalin son Udhayanidhi.

And DMK making him as Trustee of huge thousands crores worth of DMK trust.

Young faces have cropped up.

Corona was certainly handled well by these six Governments primarily due to traditional conventional medicines like Siddha Ayurvedic Homeopathic medicinal systems those gave immunity to fight Corona.

A study by research scholars of foreign and national Universities must be undertaken as a thesis of how Corona handlers of South India won the pandemic.

Six states politics is peculiar. Put together in past three decades these six were deprived by Centre. UPA regime was South specific.

But for YSRakasrkhara Reddy and DMK Karunanidhi Sonia Gandhi trial of UPA phase one would have been a flop show. But diametrically opposite of Narendra Modi.

NDA got northern states support solid.  But Corona united Indian states. Atleast in April. Whatever Modi demanded be it Clap be it drum beating conch siren sounds.

Nation stood by Modi. But as a bhuri nazar syndrome evil eye superstition the success were evaporated with Migrants fleeing being magnified by Left Parties and Congress.

Again from six Southern states. But for this minus point South has fought Corona much well.

Whichever way you look at it India stood strong with Narendra Modi to fight pandemic.
