The AIADMK has won the most number of elections from the Dindigul parliamentary constituency in Tamil Nadu since 1952.

The urban seat elected the AIADMK’s M Udhayakumar in the 2014 Lok Sabha election after Congress’ NSV Chitthan held it for two terms from 2004.

The PMK’s K Jyothi is fighting the election this year as the AIADMK-BJP alliance candidate against the DMK’s P Velusamy.
