AIADMK Deputy general secretary TTV Dhinakaran on Friday slammed Tamil Nadu Chief Minister E Palaniswami for calling General Body meeting on September 12, saying that only party general secretary VK Sasikala has the authority to do so.
Dhinakaran asked the party members not to attend the meeting, saying he would take strict action if anyone goes against his directive.
On Wednesday, Dhinakaran had said a decision would soon be taken on the next course of action to ease out Chief Minister K Palaniswami from his post.
Asserting that those who "betrayed" the party would not be spared, Dhinakaran, commanding the support of 21 of the 134 ruling party MLAs, had said he would consult legislators in a day or two and decide the next course of action.

Days after his 19 loyalist MLAs petitioned Governor C Vidyasagar Rao to oust Palaniswami, he had said, "We will select a good person, somebody who does not harbour thoughts of betrayal."
