Voting in the bypoll for the Kamaraj Nagar assembly seat in Puducherry is underway on Monday.

There are nine candidates in the fray but the main contest is between Congress party’s A. John Kumar and AINRC nominee S.Bhuvaneswarane.
The bypoll became a necessity after Congress legislator V.Vaithilingam was elected to the Lok Sabha in April this year.
The counting of votes will happen on Oct 24.
