Chennai: DMK today announced N Maruthuganesh as its candidate for the 12 April by-poll for RK Nagar constituency.

Party general secretary K Anbazhagan made the announcement through a party release here.

The DMK candidate will take on arch rival AIADMK, which has fielded its deputy general secretary T T V Dinakaran.

The by-election was necessitated following the 5 December 2016 death of chief minister J Jayalalithaa who represented this city constituency in the 234-member Tamilnadu Assembly.
