Sivaganga MP Karti Chidambaram on Monday said AICC General Secretary UP Priyanka Gandhi Vadra should contest the soon to be announced Lok Sabha bypoll from Kanyakumari.
“We need a bold move. Something which will fire up the imagination of the @INCIndia worker. @priyankagandhi must contest the Kanyakumari Parliamentary seat election which is likely to be announced shortly. @INCTamilNadu It will be an overwhelming victory for her/party/alliance,” tweeted Karti.
Kanyakumari will see a bypoll after 50 years. The last bypoll was held in January 1969 which became the comeback election of K Kamaraj, the former CM of Madras state.
Bypoll will be necessitated due to the death of sitting MP H Vasanthakumar.
In 1969, Kamaraj returned to preeminence with a win in this segment after earlier losing the Virudhunagar assembly seat in the 1967 state polls.
