Chennai: The AIADMK faction led by Tamil Nadu Chief Minister Edappadi K Palaniswami on Wednesday said that the appointment of TTV Dhinakaran as party deputy general secretary was not acceptable and was `null and void’.
A resolution was adopted in this regard at a meeting chaired by Palaniswami at AIADMK headquarters here.
“Dhinakaran’s appointment as deputy general secretary is illegal as per the party rules. He cannot hold any party post since he was not a member for five continuous years,” the resolution said.
Pointing out that even the Election Commission did not recognise Dinakaran’s posting, it said, “There is also a case pending with EC with regard to the appointment of AIADMK general secretary”.
Dhinakaran was creating confusion by appointing several party office-bearers. “Dhinakaran decisions will not be binding on party members,” the resolution added.
