Polling for crucial RK Nagar bypoll beginsDecember 21, 2017 08:31
Polling for the the prestigious RK Nagar constituency have begun today.
In Tamil Nadu, campaigning for the high-stakes bypoll came to an end yesterday.
Counting of votes will be held on December 24.
The bypoll was necessitated as the constituency fell vacant after the death of AIADMK chief J Jayalalithaa in last December.
The bypoll was earlier scheduled for April 12 earlier this year, but was cancelled following allegations that sums of money were distributed in a vote-for-cash scam.
