Sellur K Raju is contesting for a third consecutive term from the Madurai constituency.
He, of course, faces some stiff competition from long-term DMK party member Chinnamal. She is well known among the locals and has been given the ticket from the party for the first time.
In 2016, Raju ran on a ticket, where he promised to turn Madurai into Sydney in a matter of 18 months as part of a smart city mission. He was also responsible for carrying out the construction of the Kalavasal bridge, which many consider to be a feather in the cap for Raju.
Among other promises, Chinnammal has said that desilting the Madakulam tank will be carried out, which is one of the several primary demands made by those belonging to the Madurai West constituency.
Counting of votes for the assembly polls is also underway across Assam, Kerala, Tamil Nadu and the Union Territory of Puducherry.Follow Moneycontrol’s full coverage of the 2021 assembly election here
