About 4 years later, the demand for a single leadership in the AIADMK has arisen. With O. Panneerselvam as the co-ordinator and Edappadi K. Palanisamy as the co-coordinator, the demand for a single leadership for the AIADMK has intensified over the past few days.
O. Panneerselvam has been strongly opposed to the single leadership slogan. It is also said that Edappadi Palanisamy is planning to seize the AIADMK’s powerful position through his supporters. This has created a storm in Tamil Nadu politics.
In this context, a consultative meeting of AIADMK executives was held today in the suburbs of Madurai East District. Speaking at the meeting, MLA Rajan Sellappa said:
A single leadership debate has arisen in the AIADMK. The General Committee is likely to take a decision in this regard. 90 percent of district secretaries expect a single leadership. I just said that the party should come under a single leadership in 2019. All must act in unison to accept the decision taken at the General Assembly.
I did not receive a call from O. Panneerselvam for the consultation meeting to be held tomorrow. The meeting of district secretaries chaired by O. Panneerselvam was not an official meeting. After the demise of MGR Janaki Ammal should generously leave the party to the talented as it did to Jayalalithaa.
For one to save the party, another must give up leadership. AIADMK volunteers will be the leaders available through the struggle. Edappadi Palanisamy is an ardent believer of Jayalalithaa. The one who has ruled the AIADMK for 4 years well should give up the leadership of the other.
Thus he spoke.
