அ.தி.மு.க-வின் பொதுச்செயலாளராக ஆவதற்கான முஸ்தீபுகளில் முன்னாள் எம்.பி-யான கே.சி.பழனிசாமி இறங்கியிருப்பதால், ஓ.பி.எஸ் – இ.பி.எஸ் தரப்பும் தினகரன் தரப்பும் ‘ஜெர்க்’ ஆகியுள்ளன.
தினகரன்- திவாகரன் மோதலால் குஷியில் இருந்த ஓ.பி.எஸ் – ஈ.பி.எஸ் தரப்புக்கு கே.சி.பழனிசாமியின் ‘மூவ்’ அதிர்ச்சியை அளித்துள்ளது. எனவே, மீண்டும் அவரைக் கட்சிக்குள் கொண்டுவந்து ஆஃப் செய்துவிட நினைக்கிறது ஓ.பி.எஸ்-ஈ.பி.எஸ் தரப்பு. இன்னொருபுறம், கே.சி.பி-யைத் தங்கள் பக்கம் இழுத்து, எடப்பாடிக்கு செக் வைக்க நினைக்கிறது தினகரன் தரப்பு.
கே.சி.பி-யின் நெருங்கிய வட்டாரத் தில் பேசினோம். “காவிரி மேலாண்மை வாரியம் அமைக்கா விட்டால், மத்திய அரசுக்கு எதிரான நம்பிக்கையில்லாத் தீர்மானத்துக்கு அ.தி.மு.க ஆதரவு கொடுக்கும் என்று டி.வி விவாதம் ஒன்றில் கே.சி.பி பேசினார். ஓ.பி.எஸ்., ஈ.பி.எஸ் ஆகிய இருவரும் அதை மிகப்பெரிய குற்றமாகக் கருதினர். மோடிக்கு பயந்து, கே.சி.பி-யை கட்சியைவிட்டு நீக்குவதாக அறிவித்தனர். ஆனால், அதனால் எழுந்த பிரச்னைகளை சமாளிக்கத்…
A former party parliamentarian on Thursday said that the AIADMK is now under the control of Tamil Nadu caretaker Chief Minister O. Panneerselvam.
K.C. Palaniswamy said that with the coming together of Panneerselvam and party Presidium Chairman E. Madhusudanan, the party was now effectively out of the clutches of interim General Secretary V.K. Sasikala.
Earlier, Madhusudanan came to Panneerselvam’s residence and extended support to him.
“Now the holders of the top two party posts have joined together. The party is under their control,” Palaniswamy told IANS, adding that all party members and legislators would…
The Election Commission on Wednesday questioned elevation of Sasikala Natarajan as All India Anna Dravida Munnetra Kazhagam (AIADMK) interim General Secretary.
EC has sent a communication to AIADMK asking them to explain what rules of their constitution were followed to appoint the general secretary after certain complaints were raised to EC. However, no deadline has been given to them to explain the matter.
Sasiakala took the top party post after 5-time Tamil Nadu Chief Minister J. Jayalalithaa passed away on December 5, 2016.
The question from EC comes amid a series of events which…
Jayalalithaa once spelt out Panneerselvam’s rich political resume at a party function.
For all the allegations of disloyalty and betrayal that VK Sasikala has pinned on caretaker chief minister O Panneerselvam, the golden words of his mentor J Jayalalithaa are coming to his rescue.
In a video that is now rapidly going viral on social media, Jayalalithaa had sung hymns of praise for her man Friday Panneerselvam at what appears to be a party function. The remarks are considered special as rarely has the AIADMK leader acknowledged the contributions and work of anyone other than MG Ramachandran within…
Earlier, a Public Interest Litigation (PIL) was filed in the apex court seeking a stay over Sasikala’s swearing-in.
CHENNAI — In the wake of Sasikala Natarajan being appointed as the General Secretary of the AIADMK, speculations are rife over her elevation as the Chief Minister of Tamil Nadu soon, but sources suggest that the development isn’t happening anytime soon.
Tamil Nadu Governor Vidyasagar Rao, who is in Mumbai at present, will not head to Chennai on Wednesday and Panneerselvam is to remain interim Chief Minister until Rao examines legal implications regarding Sasikala’s appointment.
In a fresh jolt to Sasikala Natarajan in her bid to become the Chief Minister of Tamil Nadu, the Election Commission has said that no rules were followed by the AIADMK in selecting her as the party’s temporary General Secretary.
The poll panel has sought a copy of the resolution and other details about Sasikala’s elevation to the party’s top post.
The Election Commission, however, said it has not sent any notice to the AIADMK. What this implies is that Sasikala has no authority to remove Panneerselvam as an AIADMK treasurer or even member.
Chennai: The Election Commission should consider the extraordinary political situation in Tamil Nadu and soon decide on the legal status of AIADMK general secretary VK Sasikala, a former party parliamentarian said on Wednesday.
KC Palaniswamy also said party cadres who oppose Sasikala would start the movement to retrieve the AIADMK headquarters, Jaya TV and the Poes Garden residence of late Chief Minister J. Jayalalithaa from the occupiers.
“I have filed a case in the Madras High Court to direct the Election Commission to decide on my complaint against the election of Sasikala as AIADMK’s interim general secretary,” Palaniswamy told IANS.
“However the EC should decided…
The lack of support at grass root level for General Secretary V K Sasikala is evident across Tamil Nadu where her posters and banners are being torn down
Tamil Nadu’s ruling AIADMK needs to evolve a collective leadership to galvanise its cadres, who are against the present dispensation, and move forward, a former MP has said. “At the ground level, the cadres are not for the current dispensation at the party’s top leadership. The days of the party revolving around a single individual – example party founder and Chief Minister late M.G.Ramachandran (MGR) and his successor General Secretary and…
