news 2021 Tamil Nadu Assembly Election Wednesday, March 10, 2021 - 19:50

The AIADMK has released its second list of contestants for the upcoming Assembly elections and several of the names released are familiar leaders, who have shown their ability to win the constituencies in the past. Notably, sitting Rajya Sabha MPs, KP Munusamy and R Vaithilingam will both be contesting for positions in the Legislative Assembly. Sitting cabinet ministers including Mafoi Pandiarajan (Avadi), Benjamin (Maduravoyal), Dindugal Sreenivasan (Dindigul), KA Sengottaiyan (Gobichettipalayam), P Thangamani (Kumarapalayam), SP Velumani (Thondamuthur), KT Rajendra Balaji (Rajapalayam) and V Saroja (Rasipuram) have all been assigned constituencies. 

A total of 22 cabinet Ministers have been given seats for the upcoming elections, in the second list. The constituency of incumbent minister Rajendra Balaji who earlier represented the Sivakasi constituency however will be fielded from Rajapalayam in Virudhunagar district this time around. The party had already earlier announced the seats for the Chief Minister and Deputy Chief Minister. While Edappadi Palaniswami will be contesting from his home ground, Edappadi, O Panneerselvam will be contesting from his bastion of Bodinayakanur. They had both won these constituencies in 2011 and 2016. Fisheries Minister D Jayakumar and Law Minister CVe Shanmugam too were allotted seats, Royapuram and Villupuram, in the first list respectively. 

Only 15 of the listed candidates out of 177 are women. This includes - Gokula Indra (Anna Nagar), Valarmathi (Alandur), Kanithasampath (Seyyur), Maragatham Kumaravel (Madhuranthagam), Paridha (Gudiyattam), Jothi Balakrishna Reddy (Hosur), Chithra (Yercaud), Saroja (Rasipuram), Pon Saraswathi (Tiruchengode), Indra Gandhi (Thuraiyur), Jaya Bharathi (Kantharvakottai), Lakshmi Ganesan (Sivakasi), Keerthika Muniyasamy (Mudukalathoor) and Rajalakshmi (Sankarankovil) and Thenmozhi (Nilakottai). 

Other popular and repeat faces fielded include Saidai Duraisamy in Saidapet, Sathya Narayanan in T Nagar, JCD Prabhakar in Villivakkam, Pollachi V Jayaraman in Pollachi, Udumalai Radhakrishnan in Udumalaipettai and Natham R Viswanathan in Natham. 

Surprisingly, the party has fielded a not-so prominent leader, North Chennai (East) district secretary RS Rajesh as the candidate for the prestigious RK Nagar seat that J Jayalalithaa herself has stood from in 2015 and 2016. 

In Thiruvallur constituency, AIADMK has given a ticket to former minister BV Ramana, who is facing CBI and ED probe in the gutkha scam.
