TN Polls : Jaya & Karunanidhi Files Nomination


Chennai : Tamil Nadu CM Jayalalithaa and DMK supremo M Karunanidhi filed their nomination papers on Monday.

Jayalalithaa filed her nomination from R K Nagar seat. She is the sitting MLA of the constituency.

Banking on her government’s five year achievements in various sectors, including social welfare and infrastructure, Jayalalithaa is leading the charge of her party workers even as she eyes a successive term.

DMK boss Karunanidhi also documented his nomination on Monday noon at his area Tiruvarur, a voting public he needs to represent for a back to back term in the 234-part state assembly.

Braving age and related health issues, the 93-year-old leader hit the campaign trail on Saturday, hitting out at the Jayalalithaa government while billing his party as the right alternative.

DMK Treasurer MK Stalin will file his nomination for his Kolathur constituency on April 27. DMDK leader Vijayakant and MDMK founder Vaiko are also scheduled to follow suit this week, tentatively on the same day.
