AIADMK removes Dhinakaran as deputy general secretary
11 August, 2017, 00:33 | Author: Chad Mckenzie
Tamil Nadu Chief Minister Edappadi K Palaniswami not only removed Dinakaran through a resolution but has also invalidated all appointments made by Dinakaran, media reported.
Dhinakaran, who is Sasikala's nephew, said his post was a nominated one and the party general secretary could name office-bearers to such posts.
Welcoming the decision, former Minister and spokesman of the AIADMK (PTA) faction KP Munusami said, "They have to get rid of the entire Sasikala clan from the party and order a probe into the factors which led to the hospitalisation and passing away of J Jayalalithaa for the merger to materialise between the two factions". The party has been in disarray since Jayalalithaa died, with various factions - led respectively by Sasikala and Dinkaran, Paneerselvam and, later, Palaniswamy - jostling for control.

Talks of merger between the two warring factions have been going on for a while but continues to hit roadblocks with both blaming each other for not cooperating. Calling the resolution terming his appointment as Deputy General Secretary, "against party rules", TTV Dhinakaran said, "Only Sasikala has the authority to stop me from functioning". The BJP stands to gain at the state in return in the future elections with the assistance of the AIADMK, the largest party, and also the presence of the iconic actor Rajinikanth. He asserted that the appointments he made were valid as well and these were in tune with party bye-laws.

With Palaniswami and Paneerselvam arriving in Delhi on Thursday evening to take part in Friday's swearing-in ceremony of new Vice-President elect Venkaiah Naidu, there was speculation as to whether they could have a meeting of sorts to thrash out the sticky points standing in the way of a merger. Almost 30 ministers and top party officials participated in the meeting and key members signed the resolution that ousted Dinakaran from the party post.
