An anti-nuclear activist has taken an electoral plunge in the southern Indian state of Tamil Nadu as a candidate of the new entrant, Aam Aadmi Party (AAP).

SP Udayakumar, who spearheaded a people's movement against the Koodankulam nuclear power plant, is fighting elections from his home constituency, Kanyakumari, on the slogan of change.

AAP, which emerged as a political force after it won a surprise assembly election in Delhi last December, is trying to spread its presence across the country.

Al Jazeera's Kamal Kumar travels to Kanyakumari to witness the campaigning. He shot this video with his iPhone.
