Jayalalithaa has emerged the unanimous victor in the RK Nagar bypoll.
Expressing joy and thanking the electorate for giving her a huge victory, Jayalalithaa said, “It is a historic win, I assure that I will tirelessly work to fulfil the voters’ expectations, and needs.”
The bypoll at R K Nagar was necessitated after the resignation of AIADMK MLA P Vetrivel, paving the way for Jayalalithaa to contest from the constituency after the Karnataka HC acquitted her in the DA case.
Jayalalithaa had also termed the bypoll as a ‘compulsion’, recalling how the electorate had given a resounding victory to her colleague P Vetrivel in the 2011 elections.
Describing the acquittal as gross miscarriage of justice, the appeal has also urged the bench to restore Jayalalithaa’s disqualification and restrain her from acting as the chief minister.
The Left parties are the only rival campaigners against Jayalalithaa at RK Nagar, with CPI fielding its senior leader C Mahendran against her.
While contesting from Srirangam constituency in May, 2011 assembly elections, Jayalalithaa had declared assets of Rs 51.40 crore.
In what is expected to be a cakewalk for her in the wake of major opposition parties deciding to boycott the bypoll, the 67-year-old Jayalalithaa aims to make her debut from a constituency in this metropolis.
