The Indian National Congress, one can safely assume, will win between 125 and 160 seats in the next Lok Sabha. And the BJP, possibly 20 percent lesser. Or, the scenario could be vice versa. That leaves the other parties with about 240 seats. At least one fourth of that number will be mutually exclusive when it comes to a formation. The AIADMK and DMK cannot be on the same side.
Now, tell me dear readers, what will be best strategy for the two national parties?
