Chennai, Jan 4 (BPNS)

Senior leader and former MLA of DMK from Tirupparankandram, Dr.P. Saravanan joined the AIADMK in presence of the party interim general secretary and former Chief Minister of Tamil Nadu, Edappadi K. Palaniswami (EPS). The office of EPS in a statement said that the former MLA , Dr. Saravanan had called on EPS and then joined the AIADMK.

However, Dr. Saravanan resigned from the DMK in 2021 and joined the BJP and was the party’s Madurai district unit president. He had even contested the Tamil Nadu assembly elections in 2021 on a BJP ticket from Madurai North seat but lost to the DMK candidate, G. Thalapathi by nearly 23000 votes.

Dr. Saravanan had won the Tirupparakandram seat( 2019-21) in a bypoll by defeating the AIADMK candidate by a margin of 2396 votes.

However, DMK will not be much affected by Dr. Saravanan joining the AIADMK as he has lost his clout after he had party hopped from the DMK to the BJP and after quitting the saffron party and joining the AIADMK.
