EPS moves HC to set aside order passed in favour of OPS

AIADMK joint coordinator Edappadi K Palaniswami had filed an appeal before the Madras High Court seeking a direction to set aside the single judge’s August 17 order passed in favor of his rival O Panneerselvam nullifying the July 11 GC meeting of AIADMK.

Senior Advocate and former Advocate General S Vijay Narayan, appearing for EPS mentioned before the second bench comprising Justice M Duraiswamy and Justice Sunder Mohan to take their appeal for an urgent hearing.

When Justice Duraiswamy asked the senior counsel to file an appeal, Vijay Narayan pointed out that they had filed the appeal petition.

Recording the submission, the bench responded to the senior counsel that they would be in a position to hear the matter on Monday once it is numbered by the HC registry before 1.30 pm on Thursday. The matter has been listed as the sixth item on Monday before the second bench.

In his affidavit, EPS said, “the impugned Order apart from being contrary to law has also failed to look into relevant pertinent facts and has been made on assumptions and irrational reasoning which makes it completely unworkable, arbitrary and illegal.”
