About political situation
This constituency comprises of six state assembly constituencies viz. Mathuravayil, Ambattur, Alandur, Sriperumpudur, Pallavaram, Thambaram. Presently Sriperumpudur, Pallavaram, Tambaram and Ambathur are under ADMK, while Maduravayil is with CPM. Alandur was with DMDK which was won by Mr. Panrutti Ramachandran who shifted his faithfulness to ADMK and resigned his members ship. So, alongwith Loksabha election, an election to assembly also held on the same day. There is no much political activity to quote from this constituency. Election result cannot be predicted due to multi corner fight between the parties. Since 1967, DMK won 7 times, ADMK won twice and Congress won thrice in the Loksabha elections.

The land of this constituency have been acquired by government for foreign companies to set up their trade. The people of this constituency demand that there should be certain percentage of allocation of jobs to the local population. The underground sewage drainage system has not been completed. No plan has been made to reduce the traffic congestion at Madhuravayil. A bus stand in Tambaram and a third railway terminal is still pending for execution. Pallavaram is prone to heavy traffic congestion. No action has been taken to find any remedial solution. People wish to have an underwater passage between St.Thomas mount and Guindy.

T. R. Baalu, one of the cabinet ministers of the 14th Lok Sabha. He have been contesting from the south Chennai constituency. After delimitation in the year 2008, he contested from the Sriperumbudur constituency.
Sriperumbudur, after delimitation have become a very big constituency. Previously this constituency was reserved for SC and after delimitation that status was removed. This constituency now includes Tambaram, Pallavaram, Alandur, Ambattur and Maduravoyal apart from Gummidipoondi, Ponneri, Sriperumbudur, Poonamallee, Tiruttani.
There was a tough competiton between T. R. Baalu of DMK and A. K. Moorty of PMK. From DMDK Arun Subramanian contested and Rajappa of Bhujan Samaj Party also contested.
It is T. R. Baalu, who emerged the winner in the election held in 2009
