It is now almost confirmed that DMK Rajya Sabha MP Kanimozhi would contest the Lok Sabha elections from Thoothukudi Parliamentary constituency. Speaking to reporters today, DMK leader and former Minister Anitha Radhakrishnan said Kanimozhi would win with a whopping margin of over three lakh votes and would even become the Deputy Prime Minister. Anitha Radhakrishnan was in the news recently after he was seen distributing Rs 2,000 each to women who conveyed their wishes to Kanimozhi by performing arati.
As the women began to wish Kanimozhi, Anitha was seen distributing money for the women for their support. Recently, Geetha Jeevan, the district secretary for North district DMK unit and MLA said that Kanimozhi, daughter of late DMK chief M Karunanidhi and sister of present DMK chief M K Stalin, would be contesting from the Thoothukudi parliamentary constituency in the polls. "Kanimozhi has been a parliamentarian for the past 10 years. She is fluent in English and well aware of the issues faced by the people. She can bring an abundance of welfare schemes," she said.
She said that the people of Kovilpatti people were unhappy with Kovilpatti MLA and State Information and Publicity Minister Kadambur C Raju, as the latter had not ensured any amenities for the residential areas. She urged the people to vent their anger during the upcoming Lok Sabha poll.
