OPS, Sasikala factions clash in R K Nagar, Madhusudhanan's car damaged

By Vikas

A clash broke out on Thursday night between members of Sasikala and O Pannerselvam factions of the AIADMK in Chennai's R K Nagar Nagar area where by polls are set to be held on April 12, said reports.

AIADMK Puratchi Talaivi Amma (OPS faction) candidate for the by election, Madhusudhanan's car was also damaged in the incident.

The by election was necessitated after the demise of former Tamil Nadu CM Jayalalitha.

Jayalalitha death led to a split in the party, with her close aide forming AIADMK Amma and O Panneerselvam leading AIADMK Puratchi Talaivi Amma. The Election Commission froze the original two leaves sybol of AIADMK and alloted two new symbols to both factions.

On Wednesday, workers of Sasikala Natarajan faction of AIADMK were caught on camera distributing money to voters of R K Nagar constituency. A video shows supporters of AIADMK deputy general secretary TTV Dinakaran handing out Rs 4,000 to each voter inside a house.

The video comes days after former Tamil Nadu chief minister O Panneerselvam filed a complaint with the Election Commission that Dinakaran was bribing voters in violation of the model code of conduct.
