The Lok Sabha polls in Vellore constituency in Tamil Nadu was likely canceled over excessive use of money power. The decision came after a large sum of cash was allegedly seized from the DMK candidate’s office a few days ago. The district police had filed a complaint against DMK candidate Kathir Anand as well as two-party functionaries on the basis of a report from the Income Tax department on April 10.
While the Election Commission has recommended cancellation of Lok Sabha polls in Vellore, it is unclear if the bypolls in the two Assembly seats under the same constituency, Ambur and Gudiyattam, will also be canceled.
