In Tamil Nadu, the opposition DMK is way ahead with 69 per cent of the MLAs of the DMK-Led alliance leading in their respective seats, while the BJP is leading in Assam. AINRC Chief N Rangaswamy, meanwhile, is leading in Puducherry.

On Twitter, many of the top trends of the morning were related to Assembly Election 2021. Hashtags like #ElectionResult and #KamalHaasan have been trending high on the microblogging platform since early leads started pouring in this morning. Alongside posts, predictions and analysis from experts, a number of Twitter users are finding comic relief in memes.
