BJP workers block road

Staff Reporter

Tirupur: Tension prevailed in front of the Collectorate during the filing of nominations on Thursday after supporters of M. Sivakumar, who submitted his papers as a BJP nominee, staged road blockade.

The cadre were agitated after police denied permission to some of them to enter the Collectorate premises along with the candidate.

The police officials clarified that only four persons could be allowed along with the candidate while he enters Collectorate premises for submitting nomination papers as per the rules set by the Election Commission.

However, the workers refused to listen to the police officials which eventually led to the confusion.
