Bengaluru: Polling is underway in four constituencies of Tamil Nadu for the assembly by-polls. The by-polls are being held in Sulur, Ottapidaram, Thirupparankundram and Aravakurichi.
Repolling in 13 Lok Sabha constituencies is also underway.
Police have said that people are turning in good numbers to cast their vote and have been maintaining peace. There were reports of EVM glitches in Sulur and officials were attending to it.
A total of 137 candidates including those from the AIADMK, DMK, TTV Dhinakran-led AMMK and Kamal Hassan's MNM are in the fray in the four seats.
By-polls to 18 of the total 22 vacant assembly seats were held on April 18. The outcome of the by-polls will decide the future of the K Palaniswami government as the ruling AIADMK would require a significant number of seats to remain in power.
