Chennai: The AIADMK on Wednesday announced the party candidates for the Vikravandi and Nanguneri Assembly by-elections happening on October 21. The Kanai panchayat secretary MR Muthamizhselvan will contest at Vikravandi while Reddiarpatti V Narayanan will fight the battle for Nanguneri, said the announcement made in a joint statement by party coordinator O Panneerselvam and joint-coordinator Edappadi K Palaniswami here.

EPS and OPS, along with some other members of the selection committee, had interviewed about 90 candidates for the two constituencies on Monday. While Muthamizhselvan was no surprise choice, there have been a few other names doing the rounds for the Nanguneri seat - such as Manoj Pandian, former MP and son of former Assembly Speaker PH Pandian of the 'sky-high-powers' fame.

 

DMK president MK Stalin had announced Villupuram district unit treasurer Pugazhendi as his party's Vikravandi candidate and has already begun the ground work for campaign strategy to retain this seat that's become tough since the PMK has pledged to work hard for the success of the AIADMK ally in this Vanniyar-dominated constituency.
