Polling began at 8 AM, with people arriving to exercise their franchise across booths in North Chennai, braving the misty conditions.
Chief minister of Tamil Nadu, Palaniswami and his deputy Panneerselvam, placed a wreath at the memorial, where Jayalalithaa was laid to rest in December 2016.

Palaniswami should have "consulted us" before the merger, and claimed that the Dhinakaran faction enjoyed the support of 25 MLAs.
