RK Nagar by-poll: DMK announces Marudhu Ganesh as it's candidateā€

The Dravida Munnetra Kazhagam (DMK) on Friday announced journalist-turned-politician N Marudhu Ganesh as its candidate for the Dr. Radhakrishnan Nagar (RK Nagar) Assembly constituency bypoll, which is scheduled to be held 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.

The announcement comes days after the Madras High Court directed EC to hold by-election by December 31.

United States calls for arrest of released LeT leader Hafiz Saeed
The Spokesperson said that the Pakistani government should make sure that he is arrested and charged for his crimes. Instead, Mr Saeed has spent much of the last decade being placed under house arrest and then released.

The seat of RK Nagar is vacant following the death of former Tamil Nadu Chief Minister J Jayalalithaa in December 2016, who represented it for two terms. Scrutiny will take place on December 5 and the last date for withdrawal of nominations is December 7.

He declined to comment on the party's probable candidate to fight the by-election. Apart from these two leaders, loyalists identify with little other than the "two leaves". Ganesh was the party's candidate for the April 2017 by-election from RK Nagar which was rescinded by the EC following reports of large scale money distribution by then AIADMK (Amma) candidate TTV Dinakaran and his associates.

The Congress too declared that it would support the DMK candidate.

The EC had allotted the symbol of "two leaves" to the ruling group headed by Chief Minister Edappadi K Palaniswami and Deputy Chief Minister O Panneerselvam on Thursday.

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

The constituency came into prominence after Jayalalithaa made a decision to contest the seat in June 2015 after the Karnataka high court acquitted her in the disproportionate assets case.
