With the Lok Sabha (General) election schedule announced,
April 24th (Thursday) will be a confirmed dry day. This is the date on which Tamil Nadu votes. If I remember right, in 2009, it was a dry day the day prior to the polling date i.e. April 23rd (Wednesday) may also be a dry day. April 22, 23, 24 2014 (3 days) are dry days in Chennai / Tamil Nadu.
Also the date on which the election results will be announced i.e May 16th (Friday) may also be a dry day. Cheers!
