Chennai: ‘Isn’t this on our list?’ In order to say that, it has been reported that coordinator O. Panneerselvam is going to write to the Election Commission to accept Edappadi Palaniswami’s letter to the Election Commission that he is resigning from the post of AIADMK Co-Coordinator.
Who is the real leader of AIADMK? OPS? EPS? Sasikala?
Edappadi Palaniswami, who was elected as the interim general secretary of the AIADMK general committee, has mentioned in the petition already filed in the Election Commission that he has resigned from the post of co-coordinator.
In this case, after the verdict that the General Assembly was invalid, the OPS invited the EPS to work together.
But while Edappadi Palaniswami has rejected it, it is said that OPS is planning to send a letter to the Election Commission to accept Edappadi Palaniswami’s resignation as co-coordinator as an active attack.
AIADMK General Committee Case…Edappadi Palaniswami Appeal…OPS Caveat Petition in High Court
The Madras High Court issued an action order that the AIADMK General Assembly held on July 11 is null and void and the status quo prior to June 23 should continue. Accordingly, it has become that there is no post of General Secretary at present. Edappadi Palaniswami and O. Panneerselvam’s separately appointed executive posts will also go away.
Who is the co-ordinator?
According to the court verdict, Panneerselvam is the coordinator of AIADMK and Edappadi Palaniswami is the co-coordinator. At the same time EPS has resigned from the post of co-coordinator. Party coordinator O. Panneerselvam announced Vaithilingam as co-convener. Due to this, the OPS team confuses Kuttai that Vaithilingam is the co-coordinator of the party.
Edappadi Palaniswami has resigned from the post of co-coordinator of the party in a petition filed by former minister CV Shanmugam in the Election Commission after EPS was elected as interim general secretary in the general assembly. As a result, it was reported that he had been selected as the Interim General Secretary as per the decision taken by the General Assembly. However, the Election Commission has not yet taken any decision regarding this resignation. Thus, EPS can be considered as co-coordinator for the time being.
Meanwhile, presenting the verdict, OPS Edappadi sent a message to Palaniswami that the bitter seasons will turn into spring seasons. The OPS, which came down after the favorable verdict, called the EPSU directly. But Edappadi Palaniswami refused to accept it. The EPS party is confident that they will prove their influence in the party general assembly and sit on the chair of single leadership.
Following these issues, O. Panneerselvam has gone from Chennai to his native town, Theni district, Periyakulam. AIADMK gave him a warm welcome. He is said to be staying at his home for 3 days to hold consultations with key executives. OPS, who is meeting key executives at his home, is also consulting with legal experts on the next course of action.
Plan to send a letter
In this case, information is being leaked that OPS is preparing to launch an action. Opis is preparing to write a letter to the Election Commission asking them to accept the resignation of EPS, his post of ‘Joint Coordinator’ in the Election Commission, as he did not accept the invitation to co-coordinator Edappadi Palaniswami to cooperate with the High Court order.
Not in the list itself
According to the court order, both the leaders should conduct the general meeting together. The OPS team has planned to vacate the post of co-coordinator held by the EPS based on the petition filed by him in the Election Commission as the OPS is not ready for joint efforts. If the Election Commission accepts EPS’s resignation, even if it goes back to court, it could spell big trouble for EPS.
Accept the resignation
Later, it is said that OPS, who has appointed Vaidilingam as the co-coordinator, can officially be made co-coordinator by the Election Commission.
AIADMK Coordinator O.Panneerselvam is going to write to the Election Commission to accept the letter sent by Edappadi Palaniswami to the Election Commission that he is resigning from the post of Co-Coordinator.
