Image of banner declaring AIADMK candidate’s ‘victory’ in Kangeyam causes stir
An picture of a flex banner allegedly made by AIADMK supporters that declared the victory of A.S. Ramalingam, the occasion’s candidate for Kangeyam Assembly constituency, even earlier than the votes have been counted has surfaced on social media platforms. The candidate denied any hyperlinks with the banner.
Said to have been positioned at Palayakottai village panchayat close to Kangeyam, the banner thanked the voters and occasion cadre for serving to Mr. Ramalingam “win with a margin of 13,483 votes.”
Mr. Ramalingam instructed The Puucho on Thursday that the banner was allegedly positioned throughout the election marketing campaign in March and that the supporters weren’t members of the occasion. “Immediately after seeing this banner, our [AIADMK] functionaries had removed it back then,” he mentioned, including that the supporters who positioned the banner and the printing press that allegedly printed had been warned after the incident.
He additional alleged that the picture of the flex banner is being intentionally circulated on social media platforms forward of counting of the votes to “spoil his name.” Mr. Ramalingam added that he would lodge a grievance with the Cyber Crime police towards the circulation of the banner’s picture.
The AIADMK fielded Mr. Ramalingam and the DMK fielded former Minister M.P. Saminathan for Kangeyam constituency in the State Assembly election held lately.
