"We are going to take it up legally and will go to the court tomorrow", she added. Reacting to the rejection of his nomination Vishal claimed that few of his proposers were threatened and he has video footage as evidence for this.

The niece of former Tamil Nadu chief minister, late J Jayalalithaa, Deepa Jayakumar, on Tuesday hinted towards a conspiracy behind rejection of her nomination for the RK Nagar by-polls, saying the rejection on the grounds of an incomplete affidavit was not a reason enough. "The audio clip shows the truth".

Earlier in the day, the poll body had rejected Vishal's nomination forcing the actor to protest on the road.

Just when Vishal's supporters were celebrating the supposed acceptance of his nomination, returning officer Veluchamy officially announced that he had rejected the nomination papers as Deepan and Sumathi had said they had not proposed his name.

However the Returning Officer (RO) rejected his papers today, following which Vishal sat on a "dharna". "I don't want to go into details about who's against me, who is trying to thwart my nomination and such things", the actor told reporters. The by-poll is now scheduled for December 21 after the Election Commission was forced to countermand the by-poll slated for April 12 following large-scale bribing of voters.

Later, reports emerged that his nomination has been accepted. If something good has to happen, there will be obstacles.

A total of 145 persons had filed their nomination papers.

"After much struggle, my nomination for the RK Nagar election is finally accepted Truth Always Triumphs!", Vishal tweeted.

Objecting to the Returning Officer's "decision" a large number of AIADMK cadre assembled outside the office of the Returning Officer and demanded that the actor's papers be rejected. She has left portions of Form 26 blank, which look at assets and liabilities. The Election Commission announced late on Tuesday night that his papers were rejected. "I don't understand what's happening", Vishal said.
