BACK2cmsMamata Banerjee and Jayalalithaa have stormed back to power in West Bengal and Tamil Nadu respectively, proving their mettle in the battle of the ballots.

Mamata returned to power with an overwhelming majority when she decimated the Congress and the Left, and also prevented the BJP from making inroads in the state.

Jayalalithaa became the first Tamil Nadu chief minister in 32 years to be voted back to power, as she broke a 32-year trend and gets poised for a second consecutive term in office.

The 68 year old actor turned politician said she had no interest in her life other than serving the people to whom her life is dedicated. She promised to fulfill all the promises made in the manifesto.
