Poll deferment has paved the way for tougher contest in Vellore
By The Hindu 01-Aug-2019
The deferment of the election has clearly offered the ruling party breathing space to channelise all its energy towards Vellore. Besides Chief Minister Edappadi K. Palaniswami and Deputy Chief Minister O. Panneerselvam, who have undertaken a tour of the constituency, all the Ministers are camping in Vellore and trying to cajole the voters into electing Mr. Shanmugam.
“We do not know what the outcome would have been if the election were held earlier. People have now realised that the DMK won the election by making false promises (that it would come to power). Now they know that a ruling party candidate alone can serve them better,” claimed Law Minister C.Ve. Shanmugam.
However, Mr. Anand, son of DMK treasurer Duraimurugan, said the argument of the ruling party held no water as the constituency, which elected an AIADMK candidate in the 2014 Lok Sabha polls, was left disappointed. “His (the previous MP’s) performance leaves a lot to be desired even though his party ruled Tamil Nadu and the BJP ruled India. On the other hand, our MPs, in a short span of time, have attracted the attention of the nation through their stellar performance in Parliament,” he contended.
