Madras HC dismisses plea challenging Chidambaram’s 2009 poll win.

The Madras High Court has dismissed a petition challenging senior Congress leader and former Union home minister P Chidambaram’s election from Sivaganga constituency in 2009, citing lack of evidence. Chidambaram had been elected by a margin of 3,354 votes.

After he lost the election, R S Rajakannappan, who had contested the Sivaganga seat on an AIADMK ticket, moved a petition, alleging that Chidambaram’s election must be declared void as he manipulated votes and engaged in corrupt practices with the help of his election agents and others.
