Notice to Stalin on electoral victory

CHENNAI: The Madras High Court on Wednesday ordered notice to the DMK treasurer M K Stalin on a petition challenging his victory in the Assembly polls from Kolathur. When a petition filed by the losing candidate Saidai S Duraisamy of AIADMK came up for hearing, Justice K Venkataraman issued a notice to Stalin returnable in four weeks time.

The judge also issued similar notices to former DMK minister E 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.The HC also issued notices to former DMK minister K R Periyakarruppan (Tirupattur) and DMDK’s K Nallathambi (Egmore SC), whose elections had been challenged by independent candidates.
