CHENNAI: AIADMK general secretary and Tamil Nadu chief minister J Jayalalithaa on Thursday expelled former MP K Malaisamy from the primary membership of the party.
His expulsion has come a day after he aired his remarks openly to the media, including TOI, on the possibility of ties between BJP’s PM candidate Narendra Modi and Jayalalithaa after the announcement of election results on May 16.
Detailing the reasons for the expulsion, Jayalalithaa said the retired bureaucrat had acted in violation of party’s principles and ideologies. “Thus he has brought disrepute and bad name to the party,” she said in an official statement.
Jayalalithaa has directed the party cadres not to have any truck with Malaisamy.
Malaisamy was state election commissioner, before being inducted into the party in 1999. He belongs to South Chennai North District wing of the AIADMK.
In an interview to TOI on Wednesday, Malaisamy said Modi would never ignore Amma and that he would be nice to her, given the camaraderie between both the leaders.
