DMK retains Madurai Central!

The ruling DMK retained the Madurai Central assembly seat today increasing its victory margin from 9,000+ to 30,000+ votes. The race was three cornered with Ghouse Basha polling 51240 votes, Rajan Chellappa 20,886 votes and M R Pannerselvam of the DMDK 17,312 votes. Both the DMK and DMDK candidates increased their vote percentages at the expense of the ADMK. Chief Minister M Karunanidhi thanked the voters for ‘gifting the victory’ as a gratitude for fulfilling poll promises.

Vijaykanth’s DMDK party is making rapid strides in becoming a force to reckon with. It’s candidate increased his vote tally by about 5,000+ votes and has significantly cut into the ADMK votes. The DMK on the other hand should feel upbeat on this result. A split in votes among the opposition parties should work in its favor.
