Prime Minister Narendra Modi on Monday urged the people of Tamil Nadu, Kerala and Puducherry to “vote in record numbers” in the assembly elections.

“Urging all voters in Tamil Nadu, Kerala and Puducherry to vote in record numbers today & be a part of this festival of democracy,” Mr. Modi tweeted this morning.

Polling is being held for 232 Assembly seats in Tamil Nadu, 140 in Kerala and 30 in Puduchery.

The BJP, which is yet to make any significant impact in the polls in these states, had made all-out attempts to put up a good show this time, especially in Tamil Nadu and Kerala.
