Nagapattinam Lok Sabha Constituency 2019: Nagapattinam will go to polls on April 18 along with 38 other Lok Sabha constituencies in Tamil Nadu. The key contest here is going to be held among AIADMK’s M Saravanan and BSP’s Anitha.
Back in 2004 and then in 2009, DMK’s AKS Vijayan who had vast following in the region had claimed victory but he was defeated in 2014 by AIADMK’s Dr K Gopal, who is the sitting MP in this constituency.
DMK, however, has not fielded its candidate this time in 2019 Lok Sabha election so the key fight is going to be held among AIADMK and BSP.
