He was followed by AIADMK’s E.Madhusudhanan and DMK’s N.Marudhu Ganesh.

At the end of the second round of vote counting, Dinakaran has got 10,421 votes, Madhusudhanan 4,521 and Ganesh 2,383.

The by-poll was necessitated following the death of AIADMK supremo Jayalalithaa on December 5, 2016, who represented the seat.
