Jaya, Karuna to file nominations this week
The political temperature in poll-bound Tamil Nadu is expected to go up several notches as major leaders, including Chief Minister Jayalalithaa and DMK President M Karunanidhi, among others, are slated to file their nominations this week and intensify their campaign.
While there is no official word from the ruling AIADMK so far as to when its general secretary Jayalalalithaa will file her papers, she is expected to do so in this week as nominations close on April 29.
Banking on her government’s five-year achievements in various sectors, Jayalalithaa is leading the charge of her party workers even as she eyes a successive term.
Karunanidhi is scheduled to file his nomination on Monday afternoon at his native Tiruvarur, a constituency he wants to represent for a consecutive term in the 234-member state Assembly.
