A few minutes ago, Edappadi Palaniswami met the press regarding the verdict issued by the Madras High Court yesterday that the General Assembly held in the ADMK was invalid. Speaking then, he said, “OPS often calls for joint action. He and his family want a position… but he will not put in the work as assigned! He doesn’t care how anyone goes.’
Speaking at a press conference, he said, “For about 50 years, AIADMK-V MGR and led by Jayalalithaa. Now some are trying to take this movement into their own hands. We intend to prevent it. That is why some problems occur.
In AIADMK, only the general body has the power to enact or amend the rules. Because the posts of co-ordinator and co-coordinator in AIADMK were created by the general committee members. Based on this, a change was made in the rules to select AIADMK leaders for the posts of coordinators by the general committee members. This mechanism exists because the general body members are also elected through AIADMK elections. A change was made in the rules for the election of AIADMK executive officers by the general body members. Thus, in 2,663 AIADMK, only the general assembly has the power to enact or amend the rules. The General Assembly was convened for that purpose. But OPS did not come to the General Assembly. Volunteers get support and come to the General Assembly and let him do anything. How can he avoid coming to the General Assembly and then approach the court himself?
If he himself, who is in high charge of the party, behaves rudely, then how can he cooperate with him? After rejecting the General Assembly that day, he and his supporters went and ransacked the AIADMK headquarters. In fact, the OPS party stole important documents from the AIADMK office. OPS attacked the AIADMK office and our party with raiders. When OPS rejected our call for a general meeting, then why is it resorting to the courts?
AIADMK’s present condition is due to some people trying to take over AIADMK. After Jayalalitha’s death, the two factions split into two factions, and later the two factions merged. Convenors – Co-convenors are elected by the General Assembly members; Not by members of the public. “Everyone’s wish is to have a single leadership,” he said.
OPS called on EPS to continue working together. Talking about it, he said, “Did OPS do charity against Sasikala? Why call them? OPS has no labor, only position, no matter who goes where. OPS calls frequently. How justified is it that the OPS tried to cancel the single leadership without discussing it in the General Assembly? AIADMK workers want single leadership. “AIADMK workers and administrators said that they want a single leadership,” he said.
