Chennai: Retired Justice of the Madras and Calcutta High Court C.S. Karnan, 63, on Monday filed his nomination papers to contest from Chennai Central Lok Sabha constituency.

He filed his papers as a candidate of Anti Corruption Dynamic Party (ACDP) floated by him last year.

Mr Karnan was the first sitting judge to be convicted for contempt of court. He underwent a six-month prison sentence after his retirement in June 2017.

In his affidavit, Mr Karnan has shown an income of Rs. 19,77,610 for the fiscal 2018-19 down from Rs. 27,09,480 in 2017-18.

The total movable and immovable assets in his name are worth Rs. 13,00,000 and Rs.38,50,000, respectively.

The total movable assets in the names of his wife and two dependants are worth Rs.56,00,000.

"My party has fielded 35 candidates across the country, whereas AIADMK and DMK have not crossed Tamil Nadu and Puducherry yet," Karnan told IANS.

He also said that he has declared himself as the Prime Ministerial candidate.

"Why not AIADMK or DMK declare some one amongst themselves as a Prime Ministerial candidate?" he said.
