DMK Announces N Marudhu Ganesh as its Candidate For RK Nagar Bypoll

DMK Announces N Marudhu Ganesh as its Candidate For RK Nagar Bypoll”

Assembly bye-election are going to be held in various parts of the country on December 21, including RK Nagar in Tamil Nadu, Sikandra in Uttar Pradesh, Sabang in West Bengal, and Pakke-Kasang and Likabali in Arunachal Pradesh.

MK Stalin, the de facto chief of the DMK (in the absence of his ailing papa M Karunanidhi) announced on Saturday that Maruthu Ganesh would be his party's candidate for the bypoll.

Just a day after "the two leaves symbol" was allotted to unified AIADMK, election Commission has announced the date for By-poll to Dr Radha Krishnan Nagar Assembly constituency in Tamil Nadu.

The RK Nagar seat fell vacant after the death of former Tamilnadu Chief Minister J Jayalalithaa previous year. It would be chaired by Chief Minister Edappadi K Palanisamy and Deputy Chief Minister O Panneerselvam.

The election was earlier scheduled for April 12, but was cancelled following allegations that sums of money were distributed in a vote-for-cash scam.

"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.

Astronomers have discovered an Earth-like planet in the same solar system where "alien signals" were detected earlier this year. Haven't I heard of Ross 128 before? There aren't really any telescopes available right now that can see Ross 128 b directly.

It is yet unclear if the VK Sasikala faction of the AIADMK led by TTV Dhinakaran will contest the by-election.

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

Thirunavvukkarasar said Congress will support the DMK in the by-election.

However, if there's one development that had worsened the crisis within the party it was the Election Commission of India's decision to freeze the AIADMK's "two leaves" party symbol over which rival factions claimed propriety over.

Meanwhile, BJP State president Tamilisai Soundararajan held discussions with senior leaders at the party headquarters regarding the bypoll.
