The ruling AIADMK today "relieved" its Rajya Sabha MP A Vijaykumar from a key party post in Kanyakumari and announced bifurcation of the local unit for administrative reasons. Party Coordinator O Panneerselvam and Joint Coordinator K Palaniswami said Vijaykumar was being "relieved from the post of Kanyakumari (AIADMK) district secretary," but did not assign any reason for the change.

Considering administrative convenience, the party'sKanyakumari district unit was now being bifurcated as  Kanyakumari East and West, each covering three Assembly segments.

S A Asokan was being appointed Secretary of Kanyakumari East while D Johnthangam will handle the West Unit, they said in a statement and urged the local functionaries to extend their cooperation to the new office-bearers.

A District Secretary plays a key role in the organizational setup of a Dravidian party in Tamil Nadu. Incidentally, AIADMK has no representation in the current Assembly from all the six Assembly constituencies coming under Kanyakumari. All of them are either represented by Opposition DMK or Congress.

Further, the Kanyakumari Lok Sabha segment is also represented by the lone BJP MP in Tamil Nadu, Union Minister Pon Radhakrishnan.
