AIDMK expels. OPS and his supporters from party

 Chennai: The AIADMK General Council meet on Monday expelled rival leader O Panneerselvam from the party’s primary membership and his post of treasurer but the defiant leader said his rival Edappady K Palaniswami has no right to show him the door and rather announced the ‘expulsion’ of the latter from the party.

Amid a big round of applause from the General Council members, at its meeting at a marriage hall here, a special resolution moved by senior leader Natham R Viswanathan to remove Mr Panneerslvam and his supporters was adopted unanimously.


The resolution accused Mr Panneerselvam of siding with the DMK regime and having ties with the ruling party leaders and working to weaken the AIADMK. OPS acted against the party interests, its goals and principles. He took steps including approaching police to stall the June 23 General Council meet, which was jointly convened by him along with Mr Palaniswami. The AIADMK alleged that Mr Panneerselvam pursued selfish interests.
