Voting for 95 Lok Sabha seats across 11 states began on Thursday morning. Stakes are high particularly in southern states. All 38 seats in Tamil Nadu will vote today, while voting for Vellore was scrapped over huge cash haul involving DMK. In Karnataka’s prestigious South Bangalore seat, the BJP fielded young Tejasvi Surya, while the saffron party is officially backing Sumalatha Ambareesh in Mandya who is fielded against Nikhil Kumaraswamy.
