AIADMK gears up to take on DMK, forms legal cell

Chennai: The main opposition AIADMK has announced the constitution of a six-member legal advisory committee in the light of a couple of its office-bearers having experienced searches by the Directorate of Vigilance and Anti-Corruption (DVAC) on their premises in the past month.

The committee consists of former Ministers D Jayakumar, N Thalavai Sundaram and C Ve Shanmgugam, steering committee member P H Manoj Pandian, election wing deputy secretary I S Inbadurai and advocate wing joint secretary R M Babu Murugavel.

A statement from the AIADMK coordinator O Panneerselvam and Leader of Opposition Edappadi K Palaniswami urged the party workers to make use of the cell and discuss the legal nuances and assistance required to face the cases legally.

The committee would facilitate all the necessary legal assistance in the event of the party’s members having to face false cases filed against them, the statement said.
