Tamil Nadu by-polls: AIADMK workers celebrate victory at headquarters; Jayakumar takes jibe at DMK's Stalin

Chennai: Tamil Nadu minister D Jayakumar took a jibe at his rival DMK chief Stalin on Thursday (October 24) as early trends show AIADMK taking the lead in two Assembly seats in the by-election.

"Through this election, DMK chief Stalin wanted his son Udhayanidhi's entry into politics and many senior party leaders were overruled. So, senior leaders of the party will now be happy to see Udhayanidhi's defeat," he told reporters.

The by-polls to Vikravandi and Nanuguri Assembly constituencies were held on October 21.

By-election to Nanguneri Assembly seat was necessitated as its MLA H Vasantha Kumar was elected to the Lok Sabha.

Vikravandi bypoll was held due to the death of its sitting DMK MLA K Radhamani in June.
