RK Nagar bypoll on December 21

The poll body said the bypoll for assembly constituencies in Arunachal Pradesh (Pakke Kasang, Likabali), Uttar Pradesh (Sikandra) and West Bengal (Sabang) will also be held on that day.

On Tuesday, the Madras High Court asked the EC to conduct bypoll before December 31.

DMK Working President MK Stalin on Saturday announced Marudhu Ganesh as a candidate for RK Nagar by-elections.

Ilangairajan summed up the mood of many residents of the constituency, represented by former chief minister J Jayalalithaa. Nominations could be filed till December 4, and their scrutiny would take place the next day.

Earlier the by-poll in the area was scheduled to be held on April 12 but it was cancelled after the EC received reports that the voters are allegedly being bribed by political leaders.

"We will win the bypoll with huge margin and prove that we are truly the successors of late Chief Minister and party leader J Jayalalithaa", former MP and spokesperson K C Palaniswamy told IANS.

"Our candidate is in the fray with the support of our allies".

He declined to comment on the party's probable candidate to fight the by-election.

Aspire Swaminathan, the IT wing chief of the O Panneerselvam faction posted a social media message that his faction was upset over the treatment meted out to OPS by the Edappadi Palniswamy function during victory celebrations at Madurai following the ECI verdict allotting the Two Leaves emblem to the party. According to the Income Tax Department, the V Sasikala faction of AIADMK - which was contesting the election with TTV Dinakaran as their candidate - had allegedly paid around Rs 90 crore to gain support from voters.

Last time, BJP had fielded music director Gangai Amaran as its candidate.
