Love in times of politics..MLA to marry IAS officer

Thiruvananthapuram,: A two-time Congress legislator in Kerala, K.S. Sabarinathan, is marrying IAS officer Divya S. Iyer, the politician announced on Tuesday


Sabarinathan, 34, an engineer-turned-politician, is the son of Congress leader and former Speaker G. Karthikeyan. He entered politics after his father died in 2015.

Iyer, 32 and a 2014 batch IAS officer, is the Sub-Collector of Thiruvananthapuram, her home town. She is a medical professional who joined the administrative service.

"We recently met and after interacting we felt we both have the same outlook and beliefs," the young legislator wrote on his Facebook page.

Sabarinathan left a high-profile job with a leading company and contested elections from the Aruvikara assembly constituency, which his father represented five times.

Sabarinathan won a by-election in 2015 and was victorious a year later again.

They were engaged a few days back in the presence of the immediate family members. The marriage is likely to be solemnised next month.
