According to sources, Maankombu Nagarajan filed a nomination for Ramanathapuram town DMK secretary on May 18. However, on May 21 an announcement was made that the election was postponed sine die. But the election was held on May 25 without his being intimated.
In a plea filed before the vacation judge, Raja Chokkalingam, the DMK activist said the date of elections were published in a daily, but he was not aware of the date as he had gone out of town. Had he been in Ramanathapuram, he would have won the election. Hence he prayed that the election be declared void and the poll held afresh.
The judge, ordered notice to Mr. Karunanidhi, the general secretary, K. Anbazhagan, and two election officers, Boobalan and Sivalingam of Salem, asking them to appear before the court on June 9.
Today, lawyers filed `vakkalat' before the judge here on behalf of the party general secretary and the election officers.
