As it became clear that the PMK has failed to make much of a dent as counting of votes commenced for the 232 Assembly constituencies in Tamil Nadu, the party's chief ministerial candidate, Anbumani Ramadoss, on Thursday said the people of the state have opted for chaos and corruption again.

"Unfortunately people have chosen chaos and corruption again. Everyone knows that the DMK and AIADMK bribed the voters, unfortunately the culture of bribing voters have been there for a very long time in the state," Ramadoss told Times Now.

Polling was held on May 16 to decide the fate of over 3,700 candidates, including Chief Minister J Jayalalithaa and DMK chief M Karunanidhi.
