Rajkannan, a driver by profession, on Friday consumed cow dung powder, a poisonous substance, in the district collectorate premises, police said. He had made a vow to 'sacrifice' his life if Jayalalithaa returned to power in the state and had informed a few of his relatives about it, they said.

The AIADMK-led front yesterday trounced the ruling DMK-led front, sweeping to victory in 200 seats of the 234-member Tamil Nadu Assembly. Police said Rajkannan was hospitalised and was presently out of danger.
