Voting in Vellore parliamentary constituency in Tamil Nadu was rescinded by President Ram Nath Kovind on the recommendation of the Election Commission (EC) on Tuesday after a large amount of unaccounted cash was allegedly seized from a warehouse belonging to a DMK candidate last month.
Shanmugam is contesting the polls from the seat on AIADMK's two leaf symbol.
Meanwhile, Dravida Munnetra Kazhagam (DMK) candidate Kathir Anand has written a letter to the EC alleging that the election watchdog is toeing in line with the BJP to help their candidate.
In his letter, Anand alleged that Shanmugam was engaged in large scale cash distribution.
