Vishal's nomination rejected, actor tweets to PM Modi seeking 'justice'

Actor Vishal Krishna, whose nomination papers to contest in the December 21, 2017 by-election to the Radhakrishnan Nagar assembly constituency were rejected, prayed to the Almighty to save India.

The vacancy was caused following the death of then Chief Minister Jayalalithaa on December 5, last year. He said, 'I am Vishal, I hope u r aware of wats happening in the RK Nagar Election process in Chennai. "My nomination was accepted & later rejected. I was pleading them to do justice". Vishal Latest News Vishal turns up the heat in Tamil Nadu: Vishal's upcoming political entry through RK Nagar by-polls created a sensation after his application has been accepted and later rejected.

The actor said he has sought an appointment from Governor Purohit, now in Kanyakumari, to lodge a complaint on the matter.

The actor met chief electoral officer Rajesh Lakhoni at the secretariat and submitted a petition, address to the state election commissioner, on what happened on Tuesday.

"People know what happened yesterday".

Vishal had later claimed his nomination was accepted, and "thanked" the EC for the same.

"Hence, based on merits, the representation of Vishal Krishna can not be considered favourably", the RO said.

The actor was asked by the Election Commission earlier during the day to produce Sumathy and Deepan in front of returning officer (RO) Velusamy before 3 pm to hear their versions. Referring to the statement of DMK working president M K Stalin on the rejection of nomination of Vishal, he said: "The ruling party did not interfere in the scrutiny of nomination papers".

They submitted that their signatures had been forged, the order read. He had submitted an audio clip claiming that Sumathy was forced to appear before the RO, but Velusamy had rejected its veracity.

Vishal said even if there were any discrepancies, the candidate should be given 24 hours, apparently indicating time should have been given for his response. "If your nomination is rejected for any reason you must get a certified copy of the order of the RO containing reasons for such rejection", says the EC handbook.
