Canvassing is in full swing in the assembly segment where bypoll is to be held on December 21 and party workers have swarmed the residential neighbourhoods. In some, locations including in Korukkupet, allegations of cash distribution were made against some men, whose identity was not known immediately. High drama prevailed with some men accused of "distributing" cash denying it while at least two others were seen running away in the bylanes of the congested constituency with police giving hot chase. DMK cadres resorted to flash demonstrations in RK Nagar demanding police action.
