Thiruparankundram's Controversial Past
Thiruparankundram is a rather controversial by-election with the previous two winners dying soon after winning the election. The last candidate’s (Mr A K. Bose) win was set aside by the Madras high court after allegations of forging the sign of approval from Ms J. Jayalalitha. Both DMK and ADMK have strong candidates lined up for the seat. ADMK fights with the responsibility of winning in order to increase their majority in the assembly and DMK aims to defeat them to dethrone them before the next assembly election.
