Vaiko visited Ganesamoorthy at the hospital in Coimbatore city on Sunday night. What he told the reporters was shocking, “When our party functionaries suggested Durai Vaiko’s name for the parliamentary election, I did not accept it. So we conducted a poll and 99% wanted Durai Vaiko and Ganesamoorthy to contest in the elections. We planned to field him in the upcoming assembly elections if he couldn’t be fielded in the LS polls. However, he has taken an extreme step.”
