Panneer Camp To Meet EC Ahead Of Palaniswamy’s Swearing


New Delhi: Moments after Governor Vidyasagar Rao invited Edappadi Palanisamy to form government in Tamil Nadu, AIADMK MP V Maitreyan, representing the Panneerselvam faction, is set to meet Election Commission officials in Delhi around 2.45 pm on Thursday.

The MP is likely to bring to the EC notice over the manner in which Panneerselvam had to resign as AIADMK’s legislature party leader. Panneerselvam was expelled from the party after he rebelled against party general secretary V K Sasikala. The allegations mainly are of Sasikala’s elevation to the General Secretary post in the party.

Panneerselvam vowed to fight back and said, “ We will ffight till we get justice.” He also alleged that the party is entirely in hands of Sasikala’s kin.

Meanwhile DMK had welcomed Governor’s decision.

Panneerselvam claimed that he was forced to resign as chief minister by Sasikala. After the Supreme Court upheld the trail court verdict in the disproportionate assets case, Sasikala swiftly moved to appoint Edapaddi Palanisamy as the legislature party leader. He immediately sought an appointment with the Governor and staked claim to form the government in Tamil Nadu.
