Puducherry
The grand old party of India, Congress party seems to have lost its hold over the entire country and the assembly elections 2016 may prove to be the last nail in the coffin of Congress demise. It only has to console with Puducherry as early trends suggest it leading on 11 seats out of total 30 assembly seats. However, here also it will be only able to form the government in alliance with DMK.
