CHENNAI: Former Mayor of Chennai and a senior member of AIADMK Saidai S Duraisamy on Tuesday took a strong exception to the decision of T T V Dhinakaran, ousted deputy general secretary, to relieve him from the party post of organising secretary.

“I have been keeping aloof from party activities since I belong to no faction.  I stand for a unified AIADMK.  But Dhinakaran has unnecessarily provoked me to reveal some facts by relieving me from the party post,” he said.  

Giving a detailed account on how he was close to the late Chief Minister M G Ramachandran since the inception of AIADMK in 1972, Duraiswamy said Dhinakaran would not have been born when the party was founded. 

“I have toiled for the growth of the party for many decades while Dhinakaran was expelled from the party for many years,” he said.

Welcoming the merger of AIADMK (Amma) and AIADMK (Puratchi Thalaivi Amma), Duraisamy said both Edappadi K Palaniswami and O Panneerselvam were members of the party since the time of MGR and that their coming together was a good sign for the party.  

He expressed confidence that both would lead the government in a manner that would be appreciated by the people.
