Aiyar says he is not deterred by defeat in LS polls


Aiyar, who has undertaken a tour of the constituency to thank the voters, said 'though lost the polls, I will try to do whatever I can for the welfare of the people.

My offices at Kumbakonam, Mayiladuthurai and other places would continue to function and people could contact my representatives if they require my services", he said.

Aiyar said though the electoral loss was disappointing, he took it 'philosophically. "I have tasted both success and defeat at Mayiladuthurai. In politics, success and defeat are quite common. So, I take it in my own stride," he said.

"Out of the 7.99 lakh persons who cast their votes, 3.28 lakh people have reposed confidence in me and I will forever remain thankful to them. I will continue my work to earn the goodwill of all the people of this constituency," Aiyar, who lost to AIADMK's O S Manian for a margin of 36,800 votes said.
