Chennai: AIADMK supremo and Tamil Nadu Chief Minister Jayalalithaa on Saturday replaced one of her party candidates for the Rajya Sabha polls and even expelled him from the party for "anti-party activities and going against its principles."

Jayalalithaa replaced N Chinnadurai with A K Selvaraj, who is the party`s organising secretary.
