Political infighting within the DMK continues a day before nomination, as protests against TPM Mohideen Khan’s candidature from Tirunelveli’s Pallyamkottai constituency strengthen.

 In order to show their displeasure with the party’s decision to field the former, a party cadre has resorted to shaving their head off, amid slogans demanding a change in candidature reported News 7.

This is the fourth time Mohideen Khan has been nominated as the candidate from the constituency. Party cadre took to protests as soon as the names had been announced by the party high command.

T.P.M. Mohideen has won thrice consecutively, including the time when the party failed to gain victory in the district in the 2011 elections.
