O Panneerselvam to Contest as Independent in Ramanathapuram Amidst Uphill Battle

Former AIADMK coordinator O Panneerselvam, aligning with the BJP-led National Democratic Alliance (NDA), is set to file his nomination as an independent candidate for the Ramanathapuram constituency on Monday. Despite the daunting challenge, his supporters rally behind him, deploying all 87 district secretaries and senior functionaries for an intensive campaign, aiming to reclaim the Two-Leaves symbol. Forced to contest independently after legal setbacks and expulsion from the party due to a resolution on July 11th, 2022, Panneerselvam faces further hurdles with a court order prohibiting the use of party symbols. With diminished bargaining power and dwindling support, his fight for political relevance faces skepticism, especially against the DMK-led INDIA bloc in Ramanathapuram. Despite his optimism, critics like former MP Anwhar Raajhaa cite pressure from the BJP and a slim chance of victory.
