When the BJP attempted to pull the trigger following a heated political battle between the state parties, Edappadi Palaniswami made a risky move by enlisting him in his army while fully aware of Ayyadurai Pandyan's influence in the Tenkasi district. Under the name Ayyadurai Pandyan Assembly, Ayyadurai Pandian is renowned for offering welfare assistance in each of the Tenkasi district's constituencies.
Ayyadurai was previously the CEO of one of Gujarat's top power generation companies and is from Shankarankovil in the Tenkasi district. Even though the AIADMK extended numerous invitations, Ayyadurai Pandyan joined the DMK in 2018. He was the former State Deputy Secretary of the DMK Traders' Union, which had centered around Kadayanallur and was part of the Tenkasi North District.
On the flipside, he has already been furious with the DMK administration. He has requested reelection in the Tenkasi district, claiming that there were irregularities in the counting of the votes for rural local bodies. Additionally, he disapproved of TTV Dhinakaran's activities and Manikaraja's direction there, so he left and maintained nonpolitical peace.
Meanwhile, the pieces were being moved to lure him to the BJP. In this situation, Edappadi parties met him and pulled him to their side. Edappadi Palaniswami's embassies including 2 legislators including Isaki Subbiah have gone directly and pulled Ayyadurai Pandyan to their side. AIADMK MLA Isaki Subbiah from Ambasamudram Constituency was involved in this wholeheartedly.
Afterward, Edappadi Palanichamy was brought to Ayyadurai Pandian's Salem home and forced to join the AIADMK. Ayyadurai Pandian accepted Edappadi Palaniswami's leadership today on Vijaya Dasami and joined the AIADMK. A list with their names was given to Edappadi Palaniswami after 10,000 people joined him.
