Coimbatore: AIADMK MLA and candidate for
Madathukulam assembly constituency in Tirupur district C
Shanmughavelu was admitted to government hospital after he
sustained head injury following clashes with DMK workers over
alleged distribution of money to voters.
According to police, AIADMK workers led by
Shanmughavelu surrounded a house at Udukkampalayam where his
rival candidate and Highways minister M P Swaminathan (DMK)
and his supporters were meeting voters last night.
AIADMK workers alleged that the minister was
distributing money to entice voters, which was denied by DMK
volunteers there leading to a brawl between workers of the two
parties, police said.
Stones were hurled at each other and in the melee,
Shanmughavelu sustained head injuries. He was taken to
government hospital in Udumalpet, police said, adding workers
from both parties were also admitted to hospital.
