AIADMK executive committee meet 20 Aug

Chennai: The ruling AIADMK has announced convening a meeting of its key decision-making body, the Executive Committee, on 20 August.

Party Coordinator O Panneerselvam and Joint Coordinator K Palaniswami said in a statement here on Monday said that the meeting will be held under the leadership of AIADMK presidium chairman E Madhusudhanan.

The meeting, the second one after the factions led by the two leaders merged last year, will be held at the party headquarters at 4 pm, they said.

The previous executive committee meeting, held along with the general council on 12 September, 2017, had then sacked its jailed leader VK Sasikala as the interim general secretary, asserting the supremacy of Chief Minister

Palaniswami and his deputy Panneerselvam in the ruling party.  The factions headed by the two leaders had earlier merged in August last year.
