Chennai: The November 19 election will witness a triangular contest between the ruling AIADMK, DMK and the BJP, claimed BJP senior and party’s Rajya Sabha MP L. Ganesan.
“The contest in the three constituencies of Thanjavur, Aravakkurichi and by-poll in Thirupparankundram will be triangular and the BJP will make its presence felt,” said Mr Ganesan. Speaking to reporters at the airport here on Monday he said though PMK and DMDK are also in the fray, they would hardly make any impact.
The election to Thanjavur and Aravakurichi Assembly seats, which ought to have been held in May was deferred in view of rampant distribution of money to voters.
The by-election in Thirupparankundram was necessitated following the death of AIADMK’s Seenivel who passed away after winning the seat in the May 16 poll.
Mr Ganesan informed that he would be part of President Pranab Mukherjee-led delegation to Nepal from Nov. 2 and 4.
Meanwhile, Union minister of state for road transport, highways and shipping Pon Radhakrishnan called upon the electorate of Thirupparankundram in Madurai to lead the state in rejecting the political parties that bribed them.
“You should be a role model to the state in refusing to accept money for voting and also rejecting the political parties that attempt to bribe you,” Mr Radhakrishnan urged.
