Charging the DMK and the AIADMK with distributing money to voters in all the 234 assembly constituencies in Tamil Nadu, PMK leader S Ramadoss on Sunday urged the Election Commission to disqualify the candidates of these parties and postpone Monday’s election.

In a statement in Madurai, he said “the Election Commission has postponed the elections in Aravakurichi citing distribution of money to the voters. This means EC has openly admitted the distribution of money.”

Claiming that action of the Election Commission in postponing the election in one constituency will not “bear any fruit”, he said PMK had been demanding action against distribution of money since the elections were announced.

Alleging that money was distributed in all constituencies, he urged the Election Commission to disqualify candidates of DMK and AIADMK and postpone the polls.
