DMK wins Vellore Lok Sabha seat, defeats AIADMK with margin of over 8,000 votes 

New Delhi: The Lok Sabha polls in Tamil Nadu's Vellore, has been won by DMK's DM Kathir. The AIADMK started on a high note in the morning and was leading in the first few rounds until the DMK closed the gap.

The polls were contested by as many as 28 candidates to the Vellore Lok Sabha seat, originally scheduled for April along with the other constituencies in Tamil Nadu.

The election in Vellore was cancelled after huge amounts of cash allegedly meant to bribe voters were seized by election teams during tax raids on politicians. Rs. 10 crore was seized from a DMK leader.

In Tamil Nadu, the Lok Sabha seats were swept by the DMK-led opposition, winning 37 of the 38 constituencies that voted on April 18.

A win in Vellore will be some consolation for the AIADMK but if the DMK wins, it will be seen as another boost for the party two years before the state votes in assembly elections due in 2021.

Both Chief Minister E Palaniswami and DMK leader MK Stalin had campaigned extensively in Vellore, which is about three hours from Chennai.
