R K Nagar bypoll: Rajinikanth says support for no one. He met BJP candidate two days ago

The R K Nagar constituency was left vacant following the death of former Tamil Nadu chief minister J Jayalalithaa.

Two days after the BJP's candidate for the R K Nagar bypoll Gangai Amaran claimed that Rajinikanth wished him good luck for the election, the superstar today tried clearing the air and said "my support is for no one in the coming election".

The RK Nagar constituency was left vacant following the death of former Tamil Nadu chief minister J Jayalalithaa.

Gangai Amaran, brother of legendary music composer Ilayaraja, had claimed that Rajinikanth had personally invited him to his Poes Garden residence and wished him good luck with the elections.

There have been speculations for a while now that Tamil superstar Rajinikanth may join Narendra Modi's BJP.

Recently BJP President Amit Shah, when asked to respond to talks of the superstar joining the BJP, refused to give a clear answer and said wait and watch.

Ahead of the R K Nagar bypolls in Tamil Nadu, the V K Sasikala and O Panneerselvam camps of the AIADMK are fighting for the party symbol of two leaves. The Election Commission has frozen the party symbol.

The R K Nagar bypolls will see Gangai Amaran facing stiff competition from Jayalalithaa's niece Deepa Jayakumar and the DMK's Maruthu Ganesh besides heavyweight candidates from the two camps of the AIADMK.

The Panneerselvam camp has pitted veteran E Madusudanan against Sasikala nephew and AIADMK deputy general secretary TTV Dinakaran for the R K Nagar bypoll.

The R K Nagar bypoll is scheduled for April 12.
