MDMK General Secretary Mr.Vaiko files nomination for contesting in Rajya Sabha earlier today.
A Breaking point in Tamilnadu political history Vaiko was sentence to jail for 1 year and 10,000 fine for his Pro-LTTE speech in 2009 in a book launch event happened in Raja Annamalai Mandram.

Award me the Maximum Punishment
After the Judgement by Justice Shanti Vaiko objectied the word ” lenient punishment ” in the judgement and wanted the Judge to award maximum punishment to him.
Give me maximum punishment. Unless there is venom in the judge’s mind, such atrocious words would not have been included in the judgment.Vaiko’s argument after the final Judgment made
On a Immediate appeal to the Case Vaiko was offered an exemption for one month and imprisonment will start after a month justice also allows Vaiko re appeal for the case within one month.
Can Vaiko Become Rajya Sabha MP ?
A Person who’s convicted as a Criminal cannot contest in Indian Election. The Sedition case doesn’t fall under so. Though Vaiko is clean to proceed for the Rajya Sabha. If the Returning Officers Objects Vaiko’s nomination in scrutiny there will be difficulties in nomination. Once the Nomination is clear there won’t be any difficulties in clearing the way to Rajya Sabha.
