Opposition AIADMK on Friday urged the Election Commission to ensure that the November 19 Nellithope assembly bypoll was held in a free and fair manner. The Election Commission should also deploy Central Reserve Police replacing the local police for election duty for the peaceful conduct of the bypoll, AIADMK legislature party leader A Anbalagan said in a release.
Watch What Else is Making
Anbalagan alleged that there had been distribution of gifts and cash in the constituency.
“We have held discussions with the Chief Electoral Officer in the wake of the several hiccups we are facing in our campaign programme and consequently the vehicles impounded by the authorities had been returned”, he said.
