It was a day filled with twists and turns in the RK Nagar bypoll in Chennai. Earlier today when actor Vishal filed his nomination as an independent candidate, the election commission rejected him saying that two out of 10 signatures that proposed his name were forged.
Later, Vishal created a stir by protesting against this decision and even submitted proof that the leading political parties had forced few people to give a false testimony against him. For a while, it seemed like the Election Commission was going to accept his nomination and Vishal himself told his fans and followers that truth had prevailed.
However, in a surprising twist to the story, at around 11 PM, his nomination was once again rejected by the EC after going through the audio clips that Vishal had submitted. “Upon the summary hearing, it is clear that two proposers, namely Smt Sumathy and Thiru Deepan have appeared in person and staked claim that it was not their valid signatures and the representative of the nominee of Thiru Vishal Krishna only brought a telephonic audio clip, the veracity of the person speaking therein cannot be ascertained and hence I conclude that the required number of the proposers have not validly proposed the candidature of Thiru Vishal Krishna and that he has been proposed only by 8 valid proposers and hence he has not fulfilled the conditions for valid nomination. Therefore, I conclude that the nomination for Thiru Vishal Krishna filed in SL No. 72 is rejected upon my summary enquiry,” the Returning Officer Velusamy said.
As of now, Vishal’s nomination has been cancelled and he is said to be out of the election; however, it remains to be seen how this story unfolds in the next few days.
