EC Pulls Up OPS Camp For Using Coffin For Votes
Chennai: The fight for Amma’s legacy in Tamil Nadu is reaching new heights. The Panneerselvam camp, which claims to be true heirs of her legacy, went to extremes for campaigning in RK Nagar bypoll. The seat has fallen vacant with the death of late chief minister J. Jayalalithaa. As the AIADMK has split into OPS and Sasikala factions after their supremo’s death, there had been bitter fights to retain the legacy.
In this context, the AIADMK (OPS faction) had been pulled up by Election Commission for using dummy Jayalalithaa in a coffin while campaigning.
Since the death of Jaya, the party saw bickerings in the name of caste and creed, now the leaders have gone far and using dummy Jayalalithaa in a coffin to attract voters.
