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.

Chennai: Dravida Munnetra Kazhagam (DMK) working president M.K. Stalin on Tuesday announced Marudhu Ganesh as candidate for RK Nagar by-elections to be held on December 21. Nominations could be filed till December 4, and their scrutiny would take place the next day.

RK Nagar Assembly constituency fell vacant following the demise of former Tamil Nadu Chief Minister J Jayalalithaa a year ago.

The RK Nagar by-poll had earlier been scheduled to be held on April 12, but it was cancelled after Income Tax raids uncovered evidence of massive corruption and bribery.

"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.

Taking the lead in the by-election to the RK Nagar Assembly constituency, the DMK on Saturday announced that the party had chose to retain N Marudhu Ganesan as its official candidate, who contested the April by-election.


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

The united AIADMK - the Palaniswami-Panneerselvam combine, which recently won the right to use the two leaves symbol - will field Madhusudhanan.

"The inconvenience caused was due to the greed of one man called TTV Dhinakaran (leader of AIADMK - Amma faction)".

He said this will be the first election to be faced by the AIADMK government after the death of Jayalalithaa and also after it got the "two leaves" symbol.

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

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