April 13th, 2009 - 9:52 pm ICT by IANS  

Chennai, April 13 (IANS) AIADMK chief J. Jayalalitha continued changing her list of candidates for the forthcoming parliamentary elections yet again Monday.
Dr P. Venugopal and former minister M. Anandan were now being fielded in the places of G.K. Inbaraj and P. Murugan in Tiruvallur and Villupuram (reserved) constituencies respectively, a party release said.

Inbaraj’s candidacy as the replacement of P. Rajan in Tiruvallur was short-lived as he was dumped two days after his announcement as the party candidate.

Jayalalitha has also replaced her original candidate R. Marudairaj in Perambalur, another reserved constituency, with K.K. Balasubramanian.

She cited “unavoidable circumstances” as the reasons for the changes.

While the AIADMK has retained 23 Lok Sabha seats for itself, it has allocated six to the PMK, four to the MDMK and three each to the two Left parties.

Tamil Nadu goes to polls on May 13.
