A Smart Strategy That Failed

PMK adopted a very clever strategy against actor Vijayakanth in the Vridhachalam assembly poll. The vanniar party fielded 3 other Vijayakanths in the same constituency. The idea was to confuse the illiterate voters. Thankfully the voters weren't as dumb. The real (or should I say reel) Vijayakanth won by nearly 14000 votes. Here's the final tally for the Vijayakanths:

A.Vijayakanth DMDK 61337
C.Vijayakanth IND 1174
A.Vijayakanth IND 589
K.Vijayakanth IND 832
