Booklets

A postman in a village near here courted trouble after delivering Thanjavur DMK candidate T R Baalu’s campaign booklets on Sunday without cancelling the stamps.

AIADMK supporters at Kannithoppu in Keelavasthachavadi near here informed poll authorities that Palaninathan, the village postman, delivered Baalu’s campaign booklets on Sunday without cancelling the stamps. They also claimed that while delivering the booklets, the postman removed `4 denomination stamps pasted on the envelopes.

K Devadoss Bose, Principal Assistant Returning Officer of Thanjavur constituency, seized undelivered campaign booklets and some stamps.

Inquiries revealed that Palaninathan, attached to the Keelavasthachavadi post office, was delivering the booklets after his officials instructed him to hand over the campaign envelopes received at the post office immediately.

While delivering the items, he had removed the stamps. Palaninathan said his post office received bundles of the 32- page booklet issued in the name of Mannai Sattamandra Vakkalar Mandram from Mela Uloor post office. He had already delivered hundreds of such booklets.

He was later handed over to Thanjavur Taluk police.
