12:26 PM Jun 23, 2022 | PTI |

The AIADMK General Council meeting here on Thursday rejected all the 23 proposed resolutions and announced that the one and only demand of GC members is to bring in a system of a single leadership for the party, favouring Joint Coordinator Edappadi K Palaniswami.


As soon as the meet commenced amid chaotic scenes of slogan shouting, the process of passage of already decided resolutions were taken up. The first of them was proposed by Coordinator O Panneerselvam and seconded by Palaniswami, who addressed the former as ‘brother’ in his brief remarks. Soon, senior leader C Ve Shanmugam who was recently elected to the Rajya Sabha announced that all resolutions ”are rejected by the General Council.”

Deputy Secretary K P Munusamy said all the GC members have rejected all the 23 proposed resolutions. ”Their one and only demand is for a single leadership.” When such a resolution favouring a single leadership (favouring EPS) is taken up and passed, all other resolutions would be adopted as and when the GC is convened in future, he added.
