CHENNAI: In the AIADMK general committee case, heated arguments are being made between O Panneerselvam and Edappadi Palaniswami.
AIADMK General Assembly was held on July 11. A petition filed by O Panneerselvam against this is being heard in the Madras High Court.
The trial is going on before Justice Jayachandran. Did the AIADMK General Assembly first proceed according to law? Were the party rules followed? That is the main question in this case.
The judge had raised the same questions yesterday.
In this case, Edappadi Palaniswami made important arguments about AIADMK General Committee. 3 important arguments made by the Edappadi side.
Point 1 – The posts of coordinator and co-coordinator in AIADMK have lapsed. Because these posts were not approved in the General Assembly on June 23.
Point 2 – Even though the posts of Coordinator and Co-Coordinator in AIADMK will expire, the posts of general committee members will not expire.
Main 3 thing
Point 3 – As a result, the members of the General Committee requested to reconvene the General Committee. The posts of coordinator and co-coordinator have lapsed and the senior members announced about the general body. It was announced on TV. Also 15 days prior notice was sent. So the Edappadi side argued that this general committee will go.
OPS is the only point
O Panneerselvam’s side wrapped up these 3 points which were put in a single point. AIADMK general meeting was held on June 23. It is wrong to say that the posts of coordinator and co-coordinator are not recognized. Because no such resolution was brought in that General Assembly, there was only a resolution to praise the winners of the internal party elections. Otherwise there is no resolution regarding the recognition of the posts of Coordinator, Co-Coordinator.
Does not expire
Also, there is no resolution that if the posts are not approved in the General Body, the posts will expire. In that case, how will the post of coordinator and co-coordinator expire? What rule says how? Also saying that we announced the General Assembly through TV does not count. O Panneerselvam has made an important argument that the agenda was not properly sent before 15 days.
What are the 3 points said by Edappadi and What is the 1 point said by OPS in MHC? In the AIADMK general committee case, heated arguments are being made between O Panneerselvam and Edappadi Palaniswami.
