CHENNAI: With just a week to go for the RK Nagar Assembly by-election scheduled for December 21, campaign has gained momentum with leaders of all political parties hitting the campaign trail.
Chief Minister Edappadi K Palaniswami on Wednesday sought vote for ruling party candidate E Madhusudhanan to ensure implementation of welfare schemes for the people and said rebel nominee TTV Dhinkaran could not do so.
Campaigning for his party candidate in the Netaji Nagar area, Palaniswami said the voters would teach a befitting lesson to DMK working president M K Stalin. Deputy Chief Minister O Panneerselvam, who was also on the campaign trail, recalled the developmental schemes implemented by the late Chief Minister, J Jayalalithaa. The leaders campaigned from an open jeep. The CM launched a website — www.rknagar.in — to enable the residents of the constituency to register their grievances.
During her door-to-door campaign in Korukkupet, BJP State president Tamilisai Soundararajan charged that ministers had been violating the poll norms, engaging in door-to-door campaigns after 6 pm. A case had been registered against Minister for Cooperation K Sellur Raju in this regard, she added.
Meanwhile, the Election Commission opened a model polling booth at the Tondiarpet office.
