Kerala MLA to tie the knot with IAS officer

Kerala will soon witness a politician-bureaucrat wedding with young Congress legislator K S Sabarinathan set to tie the knot with IAS officer Divya S Iyer, after being in love.

Sabarinathan, the 33-year-old MLA from Aruvikkara constituency, announced the marriage on his Facebook page and posted a photo of him and Divya together. Sabarinathan is an engineering graduate and MBA degree holder, while Divya is a medical doctor.

Son of late Congress leader and Assembly speaker G Karthikeyan, Sabarinathan said he and Divya share similar interests, and their families were supportive of their decision. “It is a love-cum-arranged marriage. We have known each other for the past few months,” Sabarinathan said.

Divya, now serving as the sub-collector in the state capital, said the marriage between a politician and an IAS officer did not have much precedence in the state.

The 2013 batch IAS officer said she and the MLA first met for official purposes. The wedding is likely to be held next month, family sources said.
