Chennai's RK Nagar - the constituency of former Chief Minister J Jayalalithaa which fell vacant after her death -- is up for grabs and it promises to be a riveting battle where her niece is pitted against the nephew of her longtime companion VK Sasikala. The countdown has already started for the big fight, which will be held on April 12. TTV Dinakaran, 53, is the AIADMK's official candidate, who was expelled by Ms Jayalalithaa in 2011 after her famous fight with Ms Sasikala. In 2012 Ms Jayalalithaa had readmitted Ms Sasikala but not him. After Jayaalalithaa died, Ms Sasikala brought in Mr Dinakaran and elevated him to the post of the Deputy General Secretary on the day she went to the Bengaluru jail following her conviction in the 20 year old assets case.
