The general council adopted a resolution to hold an election for the general secretary post in four months’ time. It abolished the posts of coordinator and joint coordinator and established a single leadership for the party.
The AIADMK general council meeting was held at Vanagaram in Chennai after the Madras high court rejected O Panneerselvam’s plea to stall it.
Earlier, violence erupted at the party’s headquarters in Royapettah where supporters of OPS and EPS clashed when Panneerselvam reached there. EPS and OPS supporters clashed with stones, poles and knives, resulting in many of them sustaining injuries. They damaged vehicles.
OPS entered the headquarters accompanied by police, after his supporters broke open the door of the party headquarters. He went to the balcony and waved the party flag as violence continued.
