Je te le dis pour que tu ne sois pas surpris.

Why here le has come ?

This question relates to:
French lesson "Pour que (so that, in order that) is always followed by Le Subjonctif Présent (subjunctive mood)"

Bonjour Shruti !

Here, le refers to what has been said previously:

-> I'm telling you [it] so that you're not surprised.

In French, when you use the verb dire, you will usually need to add "what" you're saying, either fully, or with a reminder pronoun like in this sentence.
