In the above report published on April 1, 2011 listing the candidates of the fronts led by the DMK and AIADMK, the party of P. Dhansingh, who is contesting from Pallavaram (Kancheepuram district), was wrongly mentioned as Congress. It should have been the AIADMK. Also, the name of the AIADMK candidate in Tambaram was wrongly published as Ramachandran. It should have been T.K.M. Chinnaiah. Similarly, in Erode East, S. Muthusamy was mentioned as the AIADMK candidate. But he is the DMK nominee.
