New Delhi: The AIADMK (Amma) on Thursday passed a resolution removing party general secretary V.K. Sasikala’s nephew and deputy general secretary T.T.V. Dhinakaran at a meeting chaired by Tamil Nadu chief minister E. Palaniswami. The party also cancelled all appointments made by Dhinakaran on the ground that it causes confusion in party ranks.

The resolution also said that Sasikala’s appointment as AIADMK (Amma) general secretary was only till election of new chief and the appointment of Dhinakaran was against party by-laws.

However, the party has refrained from making any announcement regarding V.K. Sasikala, which means the demands of O. Panneerselvam faction haven’t been met and it is status quo.
