I propose a common ration card for all. It is one of my promises. I am confident that DMK nominees will win in the elections with a huge margin."
LDF general secretary M Shanmugam and former additional solicitor general Wilson.P also filed their nominations.
TTV justified his decision:
A lot of speculations on the reason behind our withdrawal from contesting. Our party has decided not to present themselves as independent candidates.
