R K Nagar bypoll: Nomination rejected but actor Vishal will campaign for upcoming bypoll


The Election Commission rejected his attempt to enter the electoral fray but that won't stop actor Vishal Krishna from campaigning in the R K Nagar bypoll. A day after his nomination to contest the December 21 bypoll was rejected, Vishal declared that he would campaign for other independent candidates.

"Many hurdles were created to stop me from working for the welfare of the people but I will not stop. I will get down to the ground and campaign for another youngster in the upcoming bypoll. I will work for one of the independent candidates who has filed nomination and ensure that they win and work for the good for the people," Vishal told the media.
