OPS camp dismisses jailed VK Sasikala from AIADMK
Former Tamil Nadu Chief Minister O. Panneerselvam-led group within the AIADMK has dismissed jailed VK Sasikala from the party.

AIADMK's Presidium Chairman E. Madhusudan removed Sasikala, party's interim General Secretary; Deputy General Secretary, T T V Dinakaran and S Venkatesh from the primary membership of AIADMK.

Giving reasons behind the dismissal of Sasikala and others, Madhusudan issued a statement in which he said, "Sasikala has several criminal cases pending against her and is also involving herself in anti-party activities. Therefore, she has been removed from the primary membership of the party."

It was Sasikala who facilitated the re-entry of her relatives TTV Dinakaran and S Venkatesh into the party.

Interestingly, just a week ago, Sasikala, who is now serving 4 years jail term in Karnataka after being convicted in DA case by the Supreme Court, had dismissed Madhusudhan from the post of Presidium Chairman.

Senior AIADMK leader K A Sengottaiyan had replaced Madhusudan on the directions of Sasikala.

This is a very crucial development ahead of Saturday's floor test in which Tamil Nadu's newly appointed Chief Minister E. Palaniswamy has to win vote of confidence in the Legislative Assembly. Palaniswamy, chosen by Sasikala, is claiming support of 124 MLAs.

Meanwhile, in a tweet via AIADMK's official twitter handle, Chief Minister Palaniswamy thanked people of Tamil Nadu and expressed hopes that he would get their cooperation and support.
