The announcement came from the General Secretary of the DMK, K Anbazhagan in the party's mouthpiece Murasoli. The statement read, "P Saravanan, Thirumayam Zonal Secretary from Pudukkottai South district, has been temporarily suspended from the primary membership of the party and all party posts for behaving in a manner that breaches party discipline and bringing disrepute to the party."
