Chennai, Oct 21 (UNI) Senior Counsel and former AIADMK Rajya Sabha Member, N Jothi, who quit the AIADMK and joined the ruling DMK was today appointed as legal advisor of the party (DMK).
A release from party headquarters here asked partymen and office bearers to consult Mr Jothi on all legal matters in respect of party matters.

He was the party's Rajya Sabha member for six years. When he was denied ticket for a subsequent term, he fell out of Ms Jayalalithaa and quit the party to join the DMK.
