Civic or Uncivic Polls?

Violence gripped the state during the local body elections today. Online portal Newstodaynet equated this poll to a Bihar like situation, while Hindu said the election was more uncivic that civic. Both sides blamed each other for being the perpetrators of violence. Chief Minister Karunanidhi lashed out at Jayalalitha claiming that she was making false allegations against him and that the ADMK was upset that it could not engage in bogus voting as it had earlier done during 2001 polls.

The opposition parties in the state demanded either a repoll or nullification of results for the civic polls for the Chennai Corporation. Infact, the ADMK has field a petition in the High Court seeking to declare the poll process as null and void. Both DMDK and BJP said they are boycotting the poll process as the ruling party has engaged in bogus voting thus ensuring victory to its candidates.
