CHENNAI: The Madras High Court is going to give its verdict in the case against AIADMK General Committee today. A verdict is to be given as to whether or not the General Assembly will proceed.
The case filed by O Panneerselvam against the AIADMK General Committee held on July 11 was being heard in the Madras High Court. Investigations on all sides have been completed.
Madras High Court Judge Jayachandran was investigating the case. In this, High Court Judge Jayachandran raised barrage of questions to both sides.
The verdict in this case has been postponed after the trial was completed last week.
Let’s see what Edappadi Palaniswami’s arguments were in this case!
OPS Vs EPS.. AIADMK general committee case verdict in who’s favour?
Edappadi Palaniswami argued that this public meeting was held according to law.
Argument 1 – Demand for single leadership in AIADMK. 2432 asked for single leadership. They demanded single leadership. They also supported Edappadi Palaniswami.
Argument 2 – All 23 resolutions were rejected in the General Assembly on 23rd July. So no decision was taken in that General Assembly. Due to this, the posts of Coordinator and Co-Coordinator in AIADMK have expired. Because these posts were not approved in the General Assembly on June 23.
Argument 3 – Even though the posts of coordinator and co-coordinator in AIADMK expire, the posts of general committee members do not expire. Because no amendment has been made in it. So the General Assembly will go.
Argument 4 – The Second General Assembly was held on the demand of the members of the General Assembly. In the General Assembly held on June 23, majority of the members demanded to reconvene the General Assembly.
General Assembly Committee
Argument 5 – More than 2000 members of the General Assembly demanded a reconvening of the General Assembly. As a result, the chairman issued a notice to the general assembly.
Argument 6- We announced on June 23rd in the General Assembly itself that the General Assembly will be held on July 11th. It was also shown on TV. Therefore it cannot be said that 15 days was not given.
Why is it important?
Argument 7 – The General Assembly was held by this demand made by the majority members. In AIADMK everything happens democratically. This can be done by accepting the request of the majority members at a difficult time in the party.
Argument 8 – AIADMK has had such elections before. O Panneerselvam has no management support.
Argument 9 – We conducted the General Assembly only on the basis of permission given by the Court. The Supreme Court gave us permission.
Argument 10 – The majority of the members present in the General Assembly all together take a unanimous decision. So the court should respect this. Majority is important in party politics. OPS does not have majority.
What did Edappadi Palanisamy say in AIADMK MHC case and what will happen today? The Madras High Court is going to give its verdict in the case against the AIADMK General Committee today. A verdict is to be given as to whether or not the General Assembly will proceed.
