Ku Ka Selvam back in DMK after a brief BJP-switch
Selvam back in DMK party.


Former Thousand Lights MLA Ku Ka Selvam has come back to DMK, after being expelled by the party in 2020.

He contested under a DMK ticket and became an MLA in 2016. He also held key party posts in the past.

Taking a quick recall, Selvam in 2020 visited BJP's president JP Nadda in Delhi and visited the BJP state headquarters on the Ram Janmabhoomi pooja day, to the ire of the DMK leadership. Stalin seeking answer issued a show-cause notice to Selvam, the latter was eventually expelled from the party as his response was not satisfactory.

Selvam jumped ship and joined the BJP. He was a member of the state executive committee of the saffron party. During the late 80s he was in the ranks of AIADMK, supporting the erstwhile 'Janaki' faction.

He came back to the DMK fold at the party headquarters Anna Arivalayam in the presence of CM and party chief Stalin.
