AIADMK sacks Panneerselvam: AIADMK general secretary V K Sasikala on Tuesday expelled 20 rebel leaders including O P Pannerselvam from the primary membership of the party.
Few MPs and MLAs were spared
On the other hand, 12MPs and eight MLAs, who backed chief minister O Panneerselvam were spared. The only MLAs who were expelled are Panneerselvam and school education minister K Pandiarajan.
In a statement of two pages, Sasikala said the cadres should not have any truck with the expelled leaders in future,
“The expelled members have violated party principles and brought disrepute,” she said.
