Sreedharan, who is 89 years old reportedly confirmed that he is joining the BJP. "The news is correct. I am joining the BJP," Metro Man Sreedharan quoted saying.

Talking about his reasons behind joining the BJP, Sreedharan said that both the ruling LDF and Opposition UDF are only interested in their own political growth and not that of Kerala. "In this scenario, it is only the BJP that can do something for the state," said Sreedharan. "It is not a sudden decision. I have been in Kerala for the past decade and wanted to do something for the state. I alone cannot do things. BJP is different and that's why I joined the party,” Sreedharan told the Malayalam newspaper, Manorama.
