Telangana governor and former president of Tamil Nadu’s BJP unit, Tamilisai Soundararajan, on Monday filed an application in Madras high court seeking permission to withdraw her plea challenging the election of Dravida Munnetra Kazhagam (DMK) candidate Kanimozhi from Thoothukudi Lok Sabha elections held in April this year.

Soundararajan’s counsel said she has sought permission to withdraw the plea as she has been appointed to a constitutional post. Justice SM Subramaniyam told the counsel to follow procedure.

In her plea, Soundararajan had alleged that Kanimozhi had suppressed certain material facts with regard to the income of her husband and son in the nomination papers.

Soundarajan had contested the April 18 polls in Tamil Nadu from Thoothukudi constituency and she lost to Kanimozhi by a margin of over 3.47 lakh votes.

The matter has now been adjourned to October 14.
