AIADMK MLA Chandrasekaran was expelled from the party ahead of the Tamil Nadu Assembly elections.

After filing a nomination as an independent candidate, Chandrasekaran was expelled from AIADMK.On March 18, 2021, Chief Minister of Tamil Nadu Edappadi K Palaniswami and Deputy Chief Minister of Tamil Nadu O Panneerselvam issued a statement about the expulsion of MLA C Chandrasekaran from All India Anna Dravida Munnetra Kazhagam (AIADMK). The statement explains that Chandrasekaran had filed a nomination as an independent candidate in Senthamangalam, meaning that he wanted to stand against the AIADMK member. Chandrasekaran apparently did this after AIADMK denied him a ticket to contest the upcoming assembly election from Senthamangalam. Following this move, Chandrasekaran declared that he will definitely defeat the candidate who is standing in Senthamangalam. According to AIADMK, contesting against one's own party violates party policy. Chandrasekaran joined AIADMK in 2007. He got a ticket in 2016 to contest the Assembly election in Senthamangalam, where he emerged as the winner. For the 2021 election, however, the party's ticket has gone to S. Chandran — who is the secretary of the Kollimalai fishermens’ wing. 2021 Tamil Nadu Legislative Assembly election is scheduled to be held on April 6, 2021, for 234 seats. Assam, Kerala, West Bengal, and Puducherry also head to Assembly elections along with Tamil Nadu.
