There is going to be a stiff contest between the DMK’s Kanimozhi and Tamilisai Soundararajan from the BJP at Thoothukudi. Electioneering is at it’s high pitch in this coastal town and all the 37 candidates are doing the rounds seeking votes in their favour. It is said that Kanimozhi stands a bright chance as she is not only Karunanidhi’s daughter but her work speaks for itself.
Even before the elections were announced, she allotted Rs 1 65 crores from her MP local area development fund for various welfare projects in the constituency. The anti BJP wave is also likely to work in favour of the DMK. However despite all these odds, the BJP camp has not lost it’s enthusiasm. They are still campaigning with a lot of hope.
