Chennai, March 24 : MDMK leader and Erode MP A. Ganeshamurthi was in critical condition at a hospital in Tamil Nadu's Coimbatore after attempting suicide over denial of a ticket for the forthcoming Lok Sabha elections, his family said on Sunday.

Ganeshamurthi, 74, according to his family members, had allegedly consumed an insecticide and is now in the ICU.

The MDMK leader, according to his close relatives, was disappointed after the DMK alliance denied him the seat and instead chose DMK youth wing leader, K.E. Prakash, who is considered close to Udhayanidhi Stalin, the son of Chief Minister M.K. Stalin and the state Sports and Youth Affairs Minister.

Ganeshamurthi was left out after MDMK chief Vaiko had requested the DMK for a change of seat from Erode to Tiruchi and allocated this to his son, Durai Vaiko.

According to his family, Ganeshamurthi was under immense stress after he was denied a ticket. (IANS)
