Chennai: Former Tamil Nadu chief minister O. Panneerselvam and leaders of his faction of the All India Anna Dravida Munnetra Kazhagam (AIADMK) today sacked jailed general secretary V.K. Sasikala from the primary membership of the party.
The sacking order was passed and authorised by former party Presidium Chairman E. Madhusudanan.
In a statement, Madhusudanan said he was sacking Sasikala from the primary membership of the AIADMK as she had brought disrepute to the party.
Madhusudanan also sacked AIADMK Deputy General Secretary T.T.V. Dinakaran and S. Venkatesh, relatives of Sasikala, citing that they had been readmitted to the party without proper authority.
The sackings of the three AIADMK leaders came a day after Edappadi Palanisamy was sworn in as the 13th Chief Minister of Tamil Nadu, along with 31 cabinet ministers.
