Chennai: Telangana Governor Tamilisai Soundararajan today moved the Madras High Court to withdraw a petition filed against the victory of Thoothukudi MP Kanimozhi.

Tamilisai said that she does not want to continue the case as she has now been appointed as the Governor of Telangana. Following this the Court has asked the withdrawal to be submitted in gazette and postponed the next hearing to 14 October.

Tamilisai filed the case against Kanimozhi in July this year stating that there were discrepancies in the nomination papers filed by her.

She also alleged that DMK distributed cash to the voters. Kanimozhi was asked to file her response today, however Tamilisai opted to withdraw her petition.
