Tamil Nadu recorded 14.31% polling till 9 am

Thursday, 24 April 2014

Chenai: Tamil Nadu recorded 14.31% polling till 9am, according to reports. Long queues were seen at several polling stations at 39 constituencies in Tamil Nadu.

Tamil Nadu CM Jayalalithaa, actors Rajinikanth and Kamal Hassan were among the early voters.

After casting her vote at Stella Maris College in Central Chennai, Jayalalithaa requested all parties and public to cooperate with Election Commission to ensure peaceful election.

A report from Salem said polling didn't begin at two polling booths in the constituency because of faulty EVMs. In two other constituencies, voting was stopped due to EVMs developing a snag.

All of 39 seats in Tamil Nadu and one seat of Puducherry  go to polls while final polling is underway in major states like Maharashtra, Madhya Pradesh, Chhattisgarh and Rajasthan.

This phase will settle the fate of political biggies like SP chief Mulayam Singh Yadav and BJP leader Sushma Swaraj besides others like PDP’s Mehbooba Mufti, DMK's A Raja and Congress’s Mohammad Azharuddin.
