திமுக கூட்டணி #வெற்றிமுகம். வெற்றியைக் கொண்டாடுவதென
வீதியில் திரளுவதைத் #தவிர்க்கவேண்டும்.

சனாதனிகளைக் கொட்டமடிக்கவிடாமல்
தேர்தல் களத்தில் தடுத்ததைப்போல,

கொரோனாவும் இங்கே கும்மியடிக்க இடம் கொடுத்துவிடக்கூடாது. #கொரோனா_எச்சரிக்கை#BJP_ஜாக்கிரதை #BeAwareOf_Bjp_and_Corona pic.twitter.com/sHnebvnxTq

Although the counting of votes is still being carried out in Tamil Nadu, polls strongly suggest MK Stalin will emerge triumphant at the Kolathur constituency where he is contesting for the third time. Meanwhile, Stalin has urged the DMK cadre to not leave the premises of the vote counting centres until the full vote count is completed. He tweeted, "Those in charge of the counting centers should be vigilant;  Don't come out until the full vote count. The counting of votes for the Tamil Nadu Assembly elections has started this morning. So far less than 30 percent of the vote has been counted. Reports suggest that the DMK alliance parties are leading in the majority constituency and moving towards victory. The final results are to start coming from the evening of each block. It has been confirmed that the DMK is the one to form the government."

வாக்கு எண்ணும் மையங்களில் உள்ள பொறுப்பாளர்கள் விழிப்புணர்வுடன் கண்காணிக்க வேண்டும்.

முழு வாக்கு எண்ணிக்கை முடியும் வரை வெளியே வரக்கூடாது.

வெற்றிச் சான்றிதழை வழங்க காலதாமதம் செய்தால் தலைமையைத் தொடர்பு கொள்ளவும். #Covid19 காரணமாக வெற்றிக் கொண்டாட்டத்தைத் தவிர்க்கவும். pic.twitter.com/Lp9Lb8LkNp
