Dhinakaran’s appointment as AIADMK deputy general secretary violates party rules, EPS faction says

Chennai: Leaders of the AIADMK (Amma) faction, headed by Tamil Nadu Chief Minister Edappadi K Palaniswami, said on Thursday the appointment of TTV Dhinakaran as Deputy Secretary VK Sasikala violated the statutes of the celebration.

A resolution adopted at a meeting convened at the party’s headquarters said Dhinakaran was expelled by Jayalalithaa in December 2011 from the main party members.

Reinstatement in the party on February 14 and his appointment as Deputy Secretary General of the aftermath have been in violation of ordinance 30 (V).

“Since he did not continue as the main member of five years, he can not hold any office in the party according to local regulations,” the resolution said.

The resolution, signed by the 27th frame of the scale, including Palaniswami, was distributed to the media after the meeting.

It is interesting to note that the main ministers Dindigul C and K Sreenivasan Un Sengottaiyan, nominated by Sasikala as president and party tutor, did not sign the resolution.

The resolution says that the Electoral Commission rejected a Dhinakaran response on March 3 because its name was not on the list of incumbents appointed by Jayalalithaa and presented to the committee.

“The appointment of the Secretary-General (Sasikala), who appointed him, is also the subject of an investigation by the Commission.” In response, Dhinakaran made an arbitrary announcement by appointing officials on 4 August.

When the head of a post appointed by Puratchi Thalaivi Amma carry the party in unison, his appointment creating confusion will not join the cadres of the party, “said the resolution.

The EPS field sought to emphasize that officials appointed by Jayalalithaa lead the party and the government.

“Our managers do not like to see someone instead of Amma, our permanent secretary general. But VK Sasikala was appointed secretary general until a new secretary general is elected in accordance with the rules of the game.

I could not work because of extraordinary circumstances. Many people questioned his appointment. We leaders lead the party and the government, “the resolution says.

In a strong signal for the fields of competition, the resolution was a “good” demand for executives who were forced to remain united with the principle of being united bring thousands of advantages and achieve the aspirations of Jayalalithaa.

The party cadres were asked to reject the indications made by Dhinakaran because they are not valid.

Ahmed Patel Win Deserves No Congress Celebration

Ahmed Patel, major Congress and political secretary to Sonia Gandhi, an affable behavior with the strict emotions of prevention.

However, after his roller coaster ride to his fifth seat Rajya Sabha of Gujarat home state, at 2:30, Patel, a night bird, was visibly moved as he embraced his son Faesal.

But so smooth it is, make no mistake – this victory saw virtually the entire office fleet in Nirvachan Sadan

(Office of the Elections Commission) and a congressional delegation headed by compact P Chidambaram and Ghulam Nabi Azad, is not a turning point for Congress.

Ahmed did not want to bother his boss Sonia Gandhi with news of winning the tightrope contest against Amit Shah. It was a battle that also saw the huge failure in Congress rise, as usual, in times of crisis.

“Congress Sonia saved the day. Congress Rahul was busy attacking the party through interviews.

Nowhere on the floor “said a high-level congress refers to the action banned by Jairam Ramesh, where he said that the party faces an existential crisis and that” the Sultanate has gone, they behave as if still being Sultans.

We have to completely redo the way we think, how to act, how to plan, how to communicate. ”

The attack, a day before the crucial Rajya Sabha elections, showed war and was a bit rich coming from Ramesh who enjoyed 13 years in the Rajya Sabha, was minister for five years and was on the committee preparing party elections .

Rahul Gandhi, who is this strange combination of heiress and savings, is considered charitably a “reluctant politician.” Little fight against Modi-Shah duo who do not even recognize an inch of space policy.

The part admits or not, Gandhi is the face of failure after the failure of party leadership. What it means and what are its political plans remain a mystery to mysterious India.

And it blocks all organizational avenues for young and talented leaders like Jyotiraditya Scindia, Milind Deora, Jitin Prasada, who could help reconfigure the party.

The old guard, illustrated by Patel, Azad, Chidambaram, Kamal Nath and Captain Amarinder Singh, remain all the heavy work of the party and are joined in the exchange of a riding unease with Rahul Gandhi.

And while Ahmed snatched the seat of the Rajya Sabha from a rabid Shah, who will coincide against him in the Upper House, Congress’s prospects for battle in December in Gujarat are sad.

Congress had clearly underestimated the damage inflicted by an angry Shankersinh Vaghela; It is still woefully inadequately prepared and lacking script to the polls.

It is the same for Madhya Pradesh and other states go to the polls in the next two years. The turn of the Vaghela happen that Congress can not decide or announce who will be the face, as in the case of Madhya Pradesh.

This leadership vacuum has been a gift to Shah because Gandhi seems to be his secret weapon in every competition. In Gujarat, to solve old quarrels with Patel, the BJP has used all the tricks of the book.
