CHENNAI: The ruling DMK on Friday urged Chief Election Commissioner
Navin Chawla to provide enough police personnel to 84 polling booths
in Pennagaram constituency where the presence of Dalits are in large
numbers so that the people of that community could exercise their
franchise peacefully during the by-election scheduled for March 27.

In a representation to the CEC, the DMK said the constituency is caste
sensitive and there had been instances in the past that Dalit voters
were prevented from exercising their franchise by a section of caste
Hindus of various villages using violent methods. The letters of
Thagadur VCK district secretary Tamilselvan and DMK election wing
secretary TM Selvaganapathi were attached with the representation.
