As around 6,28,23,749 people get ready for the 16th Tamil Nadu Assembly polls, the Tamil Nadu government has announced special bus services to facilitate easier voter-transportation.
Under this special service, buses operated by the Tamil Nadu State Transport Corporation (TNSTC) will carry voters to the voting venues two days prior to the elections on April 6.
The buses will traverse from Trichy to Cauvery districts including Thanjavur, Kumbakonam, Tiruvarur, Mannargudi, Mayiladuthurai and Nagapattinam, according to a report by Times Now.
Once voting is over, the special buses will carry the voters back to their locations of work on April 7 and 8. Tamil Nadu will vote in a single phase on April 6, and vote counting will take place on May 2.
Congress-DMK and BJP-AIADMK will be the alliances to watch out for as they compete for the 234 seats in the state. This election in Tamil Nadu is of particularly high significance since it is the first one after the passing away of the former chief minister and political icon J Jayalalithaa and DMK leader M Karunanidhi.
