Along with RK Nagar, bypolls will take place for Sikandra (UP), Sabang (West Bengal) and Pakke-Kasang and Likabali (Arunachal Pradesh) constituencies.

The Madras High Court on Tuesday asked the EC to conduct by-poll before December 31. The last day to file nomination is December 4 and the last day for withdrawal of nomination is December 7.

The EC's announcement comes a day after it awarded the popular "two leaves" symbol to the ruling faction of AIADMK headed by Chief Minister K Palaniswami and Deputy Chief Minister O Panneerselvam.

A call to a court-appointed attorney representing Black in the Smith County charges was also not immediately returned Friday. He left the scene of the shooting in a gray Chevrolet Malibu with the license plate number JDN4273.

The Dr Radhakrishnan Nagar seat, referred to in short as RK Nagar, seat has been vacant since the death of former Tamil Nadu Chief Minister J Jayalalithaa in December 2016.

The RK Nagar by-poll had earlier been scheduled to be held on April 12, but it was cancelled after Income Tax raids uncovered evidence of massive corruption and bribery. These two leaders had been in opposing splinter groups of the party the last time the by-election had been announced. Ganesh was the party's candidate for the April 2017 by-election from RK Nagar which was rescinded by the EC following reports of large scale money distribution by then AIADMK (Amma) candidate TTV Dinakaran and his associates.

He declined to comment on the party's probable candidate to fight the by-election.

The Cavaliers won six straight games despite not having Rose heading into their home game against Charlotte on November 24. Last season, Rose no-showed a game for the New York Knicks , later citing "a family issue " as the reason for his absence.

The Congress too declared that it would support the DMK candidate.

However, if there's one development that had worsened the crisis within the party it was the Election Commission of India's decision to freeze the AIADMK's "two leaves" party symbol over which rival factions claimed propriety over. Remember Madhusudhanan was fielded as candidate on behalf of OOPS faction last time.
