Kadambur Raju (AIADMK) won the Kovilpatti seat in the 14th Tamil Nadu Legislative Assembly in the 2011 elections. He was initially deselected from contesting the seat in the 2016 elections, with Chief Minister Jayalalithaa preferring to let K. Ramanujam Ganesh stand. Jayalalithaa appointed Raju as Minister for Information and Publicity in May 2016. Raju won the seat with 428 more votes than his nearest rival.
Soon after Jayalalithaa died in December 2016, and despite being in the cabinet, Raju rebelled against Chief Minister O. Paneerselvam.
In April 2017 he was one of three AIADMK ministers against whom police filed a First Information Report after allegations of obstructing officials who were conducting raids related to income tax. He was alleged to have done so at the house of Sarathkumar, an actor-turned-politician.
