Election officials confiscated an unlicensed LED vehicle belonging to an independent candidate
Toppu Venkatachalam who has been the Perundurai AIADMK MLA for the last 10 years.

He is currently contesting as an independent candidate in the segment under the Tennanthoppu symbol.
Toppu Venkatachalam contested for the AIADMK in the last 2011 and 2016 elections.

Currently, Jayakumar alias JK has been declared the AIADMK candidate for the Perundurai Assembly constituency.

As a result, Thoppu Venkatachalam involved in anti-party activities with spreading slander against the party and was removed from the post of a basic member of the AIADMK leadership.

He had bought a new campaign LED vehicle when Chief Minister Ms. Jayalalithaa came to Perundurai in the 2016 elections and parked it in his house without using it so far.

Currently contesting as an independent candidate, he drew his coconut plantation symbol on the van and used it for the election campaign.

As he didn’t get permission from the EC to use it for current poll campaign, the officials seized it and then handed it over to him after warning him not to use it on the road anymore.

They also revoked the permit of the vehicle given already.
