A few months ago, producer-actor T Siva had announced his interest in contesting for the president post and said that PL Thenappan, RK Suresh, JSK Satish, Dhananjayan Govind and Muraleedharan will be part of his team. The election will be held at Dr MGR Janaki College of Arts and Science, at Adyar from 8 am to 4 pm. Election Commissioner Jayachandran has been appointed by Madras High Court to monitor the proceedings of the event.
Last year, Vishal’s team locked horns with the opposition and the latter demanded Vishal’s resignation owing to alleged misappropriation of funds, after which producers locked and sealed TFPC office. Vishal attempted to break the seal, and was arrested. Later, state government appointed N Sekar, a special officer, to monitor the council.
