Soon after he was expelled from AIADMK, pro-Panneerselvam leader E Madhusudhanan has claimed he infact had sacked party interim general secretary V K Sasikala and continued to be the party’s Presidium Chairman.
“Before that (his sacking), I expelled her (Sasikala) from the party,” he told reporters on Friday night when asked about his removal from all party posts, including Presidium Chairman and primary membership, by Sasikala.
Madhusudhanan has written to the Election Commission urging it not to recognise V K Sasikala as the party General Secretary saying she was not elected to the post as per party by-laws.
Madhusudhanan, who joined the rival camp led by Chief Minister O Pannerselvam, disclosed this to reporters on Friday shortly before he was sacked from AIADMK by Sasikala for “acting against the party”.
The day began with Sasikala announcing the expulsion of Madhusudhanan, who on Thursday switched loyalties to Panneerselvam. She also removed him the primary membership of the party.
Madhusudhanan struck back by announcing that Sasikala has been removed as interim general secretary of the party, a post to which she was “appointed” in late December 2016.
