Veteran Music Director Gangai Amaran who has recently joined BJP is contesting in the RK Nagar bypoll under the BJP banner. He is the brother of noted music director Isaignani Maestro Ilayaraja.
He has recently criticised Sasikala for forcing him to sell his farmland bungalow property at a throw away price back in early 90’s when the ADMK was ruling the state from 1991-96.
He will be competing with heavyweights TTV Dinakaran, E Madhusudhanan. Interestingly, Deepa who is the niece of late CM Dr J Jayalalithaa would also be competing under her party which she has launched in February. Time will tell as to who would claim the victory.
