CHENNAI: DMK on Thursday dismissed Ku Ka Selvam MLA from the primary membership of the party and from all other positions he held, for indulging in anti-party activities.
Elected from the Thousand Lights assembly constituency in Chennai, Selvam was recently suspended from the party after he met BJP national president J P Nadda in New Delhi on August 4. The next day, he participated in a puja at the BJP office in Chennai which was held when Prime Minister Narendra Modi laid the foundation stone for a temple in Ayodhya.
Selvam also raised the issue of “family dominance” in the DMK and said seniors like him did not have a future in the party. When the DMK suspended him from the party, Selvam challenged it to expel him from the party.
In his reply to a notice issued by the DMK, Selvam said the party had suspended him without hearing his side.
His explanation for his actions was not satisfactory, the party said in a statement, explaining the reason for his dismissal.
