HC orders notice to Stalin over electoral victory
Chennai: The Madras High Court on Wednesday ordered
issue of notice to DMK leader M K Stalin on a petition
challenging his election to the assembly from Kolathur, filed
by the AIADMK candidate who lost by 2,600 votes.
When the petition, filed by Saidai Duraisamy, came up for
hearing, Justice K Venkataraman issued notice to the former
deputy chief minister returnable in four weeks.
In his petition, Duraisamy had alleged that Stalin abused
his position as the deputy chief minister and misused official
machinery during the April 13 Assembly polls.
The judge also issued similar notices to former DMK
minister A V Velu, whose election from Tiruvannamalai had been
challenged by his AIADMK rival S Ramachandran and to G
Anbazhagan of the DMK (Kumbakonam), whose election had been
questioned by his AIADMK rival Rama Ramanathan.
Notices were also issued to DMK`s K R Periyakarruppan
(Tirupattur) and Nallathambi (Egmore SC), whose elections had
also been challenged by independent candidates.
