Tamil Nadu chief minister Edappadi K Palaniswami, deputy chief minister O Pannerselavam and their supporting MLAs resolved to convene AIADMK general council and executive committee at the earliest in a meeting at Chennai on Monday.
The meeting was convened by Palaniswami and attended by senior party functionaries, ministers, MPs and MLAs.
Today's meeting, convened by Palaniswami and attended by senior party functionaries, ministers, MPs and MLAs, also discussed TTV Dhinakaran's recent shuffling of the party ranks, the sources said.
The resolution said, “All those appointed by Puratchi Thalaivi Amma and those who came to positions through elections will continue to function in their same positions.”
Dhinakaran on Sunday removed Palaniswami as the party's Salem (Suburban) district secretary, besides sacking some other ministers from party posts.
A resolution, which was read out by law minister C Ve Shanmugam said, “The office-bearers and cadres of the party have demanded the convening of general council and executive committee.”
In another resolution, the unified party resolved to term the appointments made by TTV Dhinakaran as invalid as he had no authority to sack or appoint office bearers.
During the meeting another resolution resolved to take legal action to take over Dr Namadhu MGR and Jaya TV.
The resolution said, “They are properties of the party, floated with untiring efforts of Amma and with the contribution from lakhs of cadres.”
