Sidelined AIADMK leader TTV Dhinakaran, who secured an emphatic win in the December 21 R K Nagar bypoll, was today sworn-in as member of the Tamil Nadu Assembly.
He succeeds former Chief Minister J Jayalalithaa as legislator of the city segment. He is now the first independent legislator from the constituency. The newly elected MLA was sworn-in as a member of the 15th Assembly by Speaker P Dhanapal in his office.
TTV Dhinakaran meets VK Sasikala in Bengaluru jail for first time after RK Nagar bypoll win.
AIADMK expells 44 members, continues to crack whip against TTV Dhinakaran supporters after RK Nagar bypoll loss. TTV Dhinakaran wins RK Nagar bypoll by massive margin of over 40,000 votes After taking the oath, TTV in his speech attacked the ruling government, asking those in power to do a soul-search about their betrayals.
He also said that the selfish interests of a few had led to so much of confusion within the AIADMK party. He also mentioned that last year on the same day (December 29, 2016), his aunt VK Sasikala had been as general secretary of AIADMK at its general council meeting.
Dhinakaran’s supporters, including some disqualified MLAs and key aides like Thangatamilselvan and P Vetrivel, were present on the occasion. Dhanapal later shook hands with Dhinakaran.
The bypoll was necessitated due to the death of Jayalalithaa who was the sitting MLA. Dhinakaran trounced his nearest AIADMK rival E Madhusudhanan by over 40,000 votes.
