RK Nagar : Polling under way for the highstakes seat in Tamil Nadu
Voting for by-election to high-stakes RK Nagar assembly constituency in Tamil Nadu began at 8 am on Thursday after the Delhi high court declined to pass any order directing the Election Commission to put on hold the election. Earlier on Wednesday, a video said to be of late Tamil Nadu chief minister J Jayalalithaa was released by a leader of the TTV Dinakaran camp, a day before a by-election to the city's RK Nagar assembly constituency that fell vacant after the AIADMK leader's death last December. Campaigning for the high-stakes ended on Tuesday and the outcome of the hustings is likely to be seen as a report card of the 17-month old AIADMK government. Counting of votes to take place on December 24.
