Tirupur: The road from Gobichettipalayam Arts and Science College, where the counting of votes for Tirupur Lok Sabha constituency was carried out, to the city here was crowded with All India Anna Dravida Munnetra Kazhagam (AIADMK) partymen on Saturday.

The partymen gave rousing reception to Chellappa Sivasami. Crackers were burst and sweets were distributed all through the way.

Soon after he received the certificate of election from the Returning Officer for Tirupur Lok Sabha Constituency, C. Samayamoorthy, declaring him as the winner, Mr Sivasami was taken out on a victory lap by his men.

Talking reporters, Mr. Sivasami attributed his victory to the development projects and pro-people measures implemented by his party during the Amma’s regime (i.e. Jayalalithaa’s term) during 2001-06.

“The electors voted for me just because that it is the AIADMK Government led by Jayalalithaa which gave the voters of Tirupur a new drinking water scheme and an Apparel Park, among other projects,” he pointed out. He said that steps would be taken to fulfil all the poll promises given to the people during the campaign. He thanked all the workers of alliance partners of the AIADMK.
