The All India Anna Dravida Munnetra Kazhagam (AIADMK) on Tuesday sacked jailed VK Sasikala from the party and the post of “interim” general secretary. The AIADMK at a general council meeting passed a resolution in this regard.
The resolution further said that the Tamil Nadu Chief Minister E Palanisamy and his deputy O Panneerselvam shall retrieve the party and its symbol.
“The temporary general secretary post stands forfeited. Sasikala is expelled,” said Tamil Nadu Revenue Minister RB Udaykumar.
“The General Secretary post is always to be held by Amma and it shall remain forever. And Amma only has all the credibility to be there. There is no one else for the post and the by-law is ratified to that effect,” the resolution read.
He said that the officials appointed by late J Jayalalithaa will continue and all announcements made by TTV Dhinakaran will not be binding on the party.
