RK Nagar by-poll: Clash between AIADMK's OPS and EPS faction; Madhusudhanan's vehicle damaged

Several people were injured during the clash which broke out between the two factions of the AIADMK- OPS and EPS camp.

The two factions of ruling All India Anna Dravida Munnetra Kazhagam (AIADMK), OPS (O Panneerselvam) and EPS (Edappadi Palaniswami) engaged in a violent clash today leaving many injured. Senior party leader of OPS faction E Madhusudhanan's vehicle was also damaged during the clash.

Madhusudhanan is contesting against Sasikala-led AIADMK Amma candidate TTV Dhinakaran for the April 12 bypoll.

Both the OPS and EPS faction have been hitting out at each other with just a few days left for the RK Nagar elections in Chennai. The Sasikala camp of the AIADMK had moved the Election Commission challenging the use of party symbol by the OPS camp.

The Panneerselvam faction earlier today created uproar after carrying a replica of the coffin of the late Jayalalithaa during their campaigns at RK Nagar.
