Tamil Nadu polls: BJP Lok Sabha candidate joins AIADMK

Coimbatore: A BJP candidate for the last Lok Sabha polls and whose nomination was rejected in Nilgiris SC Constituency, which created a controversy, has joined AIADMK in the presence of party supremo Jayalalithaa in Coimbatore.

S Gurumurthy, whose nomination was rejected due to delayin submitting the 'B form' joined AIADMK on Sunday night after Jayalalithaa's election meeting in the city.


He was in the news then as he delayed the form despite his party providing it well in advance. However, he had claimed that a problem with his vehicle was the reason for the delay.

BJP had charged him with taking money from AIADMK to tactically withdraw from contest to defeat DMK, which had fielded former union minister and sitting MP, A Raja.

C Gopalakrishnan of AIADMK had won the seat comfortably.
