CHENNAI/COIMBATORE: AIADMK general secretary and Chief Minister J Jayalalithaa on Monday relieved Aspire K Swaminathan from the post of IT Wing secretary of the party and appointed an Indian Institute of Management Ahmedabad graduate, G Ramachandran of Balaji Nagar, Singanallur constituency, Coimbatore district as the new secretary of the wing. She has directed the party cadre to extend full cooperation to Ramachandran.

Ramachandran inherited his political aspirations from his late father Singai Govindarasu, who was an MLA from Singanallur between 1991 and 1996, which drove him to contest in the student’s affairs council election at IIM-A and become its general secretary.

He completed his schooling at PERKS Matriculation Higher Secondary School, followed by a diploma (EEE) at PSG Polytechnic College and BE (ECE) at PSG College of Technology, before joining the post-graduate programme at IIM Ahmedabad in 2013.

Party sources said Ramachandran, is likely to to take charge of his new responsibilities on Tuesday and spearhead the party’s campaign in cyberspace during the State Assembly elections.
