Actor Vijay's house in Chennai attacked

M R Venkatesh, Chennai, April 19, DH News Service:

A group of people attacked Tamil film actor Vijay’s residence at Saligramam here on Tuesday morning, shattering glass panes of a first floor window.

  The actor was not at home at that time. His fans had campaigned for the AIADMK combine in the Assembly elections earlier this month.

Vijay Antony, a music composer who was staying in an adjacent room, lodged a complaint with the Virguambakkam police.

While members of Vijay’s fan club “Makkal Iyakkam” had taken out cycle rallies on the last day of the campaign in support of the AIADMK-DMDK alliance, the actor’s father and film director S A Chandrasekhar had toured the state for the same purpose.


Meanwhile, AIADMK General Secretary J Jayalalitha has written to the Election Commission (EC) seeking more safeguards at all counting centres across Tamil Nadu to ensure free and fair counting of votes scheduled for May 13.

In her letter to state Chief Electoral Officer Praveen Kumar, Jayalalitha asked for additional paramilitary forces at the counting centres.

Urging that the counting process should take place in the presence of an EC-deputed observer, she said the entire counting process from  “the removing of seal from each electronic voting machine (EVM) till the votes of each EVM are counted must be videographed by the EC to prevent any malpractice.”

In another significant poll-related development in neighbouring Puducherry, the EC has directed filing of FIRs against two candidates, one from the Congress and another from “All India N R Congress” formed by former chief minister N Rangasamy, for allegedly trying to bribe voters on the eve of the April 13 elections.

The FIRs have been filed against Congress candidate Sivakolundu of Lawspet constituency, and “All India N R Congress” candidate Angalan of the Thirubhuvanai, for allegedly distributing tokens to voters in their respective areas. The tokens, meant to be exchanged for saris, were seized by the poll officials there.
