Sacked AIADMK leader VK Sasikala’s nephew TTV Dhinakaran on Wednesday questioned the legality of the general council meeting that was convened on Tuesday. He said his party will never join hands with DMK.
"We will never go with DMK, they are our political enemy," he said.
The meeting was called by E Palaniswami, and attended by O Panneerselvam and other members of the council.
Dhinakaran said no legal approval was taken for the meeting and claimed that those who had attended, were not the members of the general council.
He said all 21 MLAs have backed Saiskala and they have told the Governor to ask Edappadi Palaniswami to prove his majority in the Assembly. He said he will go to any extent to protect the party.
Earlier in the day, Dhinakaran removed Dindigul C Srinivasan from the post of AIADMK party treasurer and appointed M. Rangaswamy.
