Twitteratis have come out with funny and sarcastic memes to show poor show of BJP candidate, state secretary Karu Nagarajan, who was trailing NOTA. At the end of fourth round also NOTA was ahead of BJP by 537 votes. NOTA polled 737 votes and BJP 220. TTV Dinakaran has taken the massive lead as against ADMK and DMK.
