While ADMK's Joint Coordinator Edappadi Palaniswami takes a huge breath of relief by holding the lead in his Edappadi constituency, the party has been put under a major shock after seven senior ministers have been trailing in their respective constituencies as DMK takes the lead across the state with a sound margin. The assembly poll in Tamil Nadu was held on April 6 and the vote counting had begun on May 2.
The vote counting has been underway in 75 centers across the state and after counting the postal ballots, the counting has advanced to count the votes registered in the EVMs. The counting has been unfolding major shock waves for the ADMK as the seven senior ministers are in the fashion of conceding a defeat. Though ADMK was found to have a comeback in its stronghold Kongu belt, the rest of the areas in the state are going majorly against ADMK.
Let's take a look at the ministers who still won't have the victory in sight and this data is as of 10.30 am,
- Royapuram- Minister D Jayakumar trails the race against DMK's Moorthy
