Jayalalitha and Karunanidhi Showcaused:- 

The Election Commission sent showcause notices to AIADMK chief Jaylalitha and DMK chief Karunanidhi for vitiating the purity of the election. It had been complained that both the AIADMK and the DMK violated the guidelines in their manifestoes by giving some election promises. The Commission sought reply by Sunday.
Why has ECI showcaused Jayalalitha and Karunanidhi?
The Commission has sent showcauses notices to Jayalalitha and Karunanidhi for both the parties (AIADMK and DMK) violated the guidelines instructed.

Aravakurichi Constituency:-
The Commission has banned election in Aravakurichi constituency from 16th May to 23rd May. The Commission found malpractices and bribing voters in this constituency. The Chief Commissioner Naseem Zaidi and fellow commissioners AK Joti and O P Rawat has signed an order using power on the base of Article 324 of the Constitution cancelling the poll of Aravakurichi constituency on 16th May. The Commission said that the election in Aravakurichi will be taken on 23rd May.  It has also said that the the Commission will publish the result on 25th May. FIRs have been lodged. Income Tax raids in the residences of  various political leaders prove that they have distributed unaccounted money and gifts to the voters.
Aravakurichi Poll on 16th May Cancelled.

570 Crore Seized is Claimed by the SBI:-

The officials crocked 570 crores in Tirapur check post. Three trucks bearing 570 crores rupees were going to Visakhapatnam from Coimbatore.  Three cars were escorting these trucks. The police did not wear uniforms. They did not stop the cars. Later being chased and held at Chengapalli , they said that they had thought the ECI officials as thieves. They failed to show necessary documents to the officials of the Commission. Of late, the State Bank of India stated that the 570 rupees belongs to SBI. Finally the confusion is over.
