CHENNAI: If there is a verdict against Edappadi Palaniswami in the AIADMK general committee case, there are chances of 3 changes in the party.
The case filed by O Panneerselvam against the AIADMK General Committee held on July 11 is being investigated in the Madras High Court. In this, High Court Judge Jayachandran raised barrage of questions to both sides.
Both sides of the argument in this case are over. Only judgment is deferred.
The Supreme Court had earlier said that the verdict in the case should be given in 2 weeks.

Due to this, a verdict in the case is expected within the next week. It will be known whether Edappadi Palaniswami will continue as interim general secretary or not depending on the verdict in this case. His position is currently hanging on a court ruling. 23 resolutions were rejected in the General Assembly on 23rd July in the arguments raised in this case. So no decision was taken in that General Assembly. Thus the post of coordinator and co-coordinator is vacant.
The second General Assembly was held on the request of the General Assembly members. In the General Assembly held on June 23, majority of the members demanded to reconvene the General Assembly. So there is no mistake in us convening the general assembly,” said Edappadi. In the argument of O Panneerselvam in the case, the General Committee cannot be convened by the Chairman. Also, the coordinator did not approve the permanent election of the president. He walked out of there. Therefore, his calling for the General Assembly is invalid, he said. If the verdict goes against Edappadi in this case alone, the following 3 incidents will happen in AIADMK.
If the verdict goes against Edappadi…again O Panneerselvam will be the coordinator. He will continue in the same position. It turns out that the General Assembly did not happen. The removal of O Panneerselvam in the General Assembly will make it no. Also, the removal of O Panneerselvam’s supporters will be null and void. This will be hugely beneficial for O Panneerselvam.
O Panneerselvam’s post as Deputy Leader of the Opposition will continue. Because the court judgment will play an important role in this. Likewise, Dindigul Srinivasan becoming Treasurer and Udayakumar becoming Deputy Leader of Opposition will all become invalid. All the decisions taken by Edappadi as Interim Secretary General will become null and void.
If the verdict is only in favor of O Panneerselvam.. the general meeting will be held without his permission. Thus, if the post of Interim General Secretary is to be created again in AIADMK, then a General Committee should be convened for it. O Panneerselvam will have to get permission for that too. If the verdict is in favor of O Panneerselvam, it is expected that there will be various changes in the AIADMK.
What will happen if AIADMK general council case verdict comes against Edappadi Palanisamy? In the event of a verdict against Edappadi Palaniswami in the AIADMK general committee case, there are three possible changes in the party.
