Chennai: The Registrar of Societies today said elections to Nadigar Sangam, slated for 23 June, have been cancelled as they need time to enquire with those who were suspended or dismissed from the association for various reasons and have been denied the right to vote.

Since it may take some time, the election process would be stopped till then, an order said.

The Pandavar Ani of Nasser and Vishal has alleged that it was a deliberate attempt to stop the elections.

Poochi Murugan, contesting on behalf of Pandavar Ani, said, “This is against democracy. There is an attempt to deliberately cancel elections to stop us from winning.”

He also said they would face the latest order legally. Murugan said this would be decided after a meeting of the office-bearers of their group.
