New Delhi: In Tamil Nadu, the DMK and AIADMK are battling each other first time in the absence of their legendary leaders M Karunanidhi and J Jayalalithaa, in both the Lok Sabha elections and the assembly bypolls.

In Tamil Nadu, which sends 39 MPs to the Lok Sabha, elections were held on 38 seats. The result of 22 bypolls are also expected today.
