Udhagamandalam: The DMDK is a force to reckon with in the Nilgiris Parliamentary constituency, said the party candidate S. Selvaraj while speaking to presspersons here on Thursday.

Pointing out that he was going in search of the people and systematically seeking their support, he claimed that they were looking for a change.

To a question relating to his opponents, he wondered why the DMK candidate A. Raja had decided to contest from the Nilgiris when it was claimed that he had done a good job in his earlier constituency Perambalur.

There was no rule which stated that an SC candidate cannot contest in a constituency which had been brought under the general category.

Stating that if elected he will be easily accessible to all sections of the society, Mr. Selvaraj added that he had drawn up a detailed plan of action to develop all the six Assembly segments of the constituency. Earlier, he filed his nomination with the Returning Officer, Anandrao V. Patil.

M. Krishnan, who filed his nomination as a Bahujan Samaj Party candidate, said that he will try to make the Sri Lankan President, Rajapaksa, stand before the International Court of Justice.

An ex-serviceman C. Velmurugan, who filed his nomination as an independent, said that only through proper representation can the children of ex-servicemen get jobs and preference in education.

The candidate of the Kongunadu Munnetra Kazhagam, S. Badhran, said after filing his nomination that he would go all out to get the Badagas included in the list of Scheduled Tribes.
