RK Nagar bypoll: Tamil actor Vishal and Jayalalithaa's niece file nomination papers

Actor Vishal Krishna claimed today that his nomination for the December 21 R K Nagar bypoll here has been accepted by authorities after a scrutiny of a complaint in respect of signatures in the application form. "Therefore, I conclude that the nomination for Thiru Vishal Krishna filed in SL No. 72 is rejected upon my summary enquiry". "Vishal Krishnan only brought a telephonic audio clip, the veracity of the person speaking therein can not be ascertained", said the EC in a statement. They say that the protests by Cheran and a few others are emotional blackmail. After the returning officer rejected his nomination, Vishal and his supporters staged a protest on the Tiruvottiyur High Road in RK Nagar, blocking traffic. The man was heard claiming that some supporters of AIADMK candidate E. Madhusudanan had threatened family members of the proposer to submit a complaint that her signature was forged. "Truth Always Triumphs!", the actor had tweeted.

However, many on Twitter blamed his confession that Kejriwal had inspired him to join the politics, for the poll body to reject his nomination papers. "After investigation, my nomination was accepted", he said.

She said only an independent CBI probe will set right the mystery surrounding Jayalalithaa's death.

Deepa accused the ruling AIADMK for the rejection of her nomination. The last date for the withdrawal of the candidature is December 7.
