"This election was not being handled in a fair manner that is why the Election Commission of India intervened. Constitutionally, it has proved that our democracy is alive. I appreciate the EC's decision. This yet again proved that India is the largest democracy," Sasikala Pushpa said.

The election commission decided to call off the bypoll in R K Nagar constituency where the assembly seat fell vacant after Jayalalithaa's death. Amid allegations of crores of rupees being spent on bribing voters, the election commission countermanded the bypoll that was to take place on April 12.
