On Monday, Pugazhendi called on Panneerselvam and Palaniswami during the legislature party meeting and held discussions for sometime, perhaps to explain his remarks against Anbumani.
AIADMK coordinator O Panneerselvam who was reportedly bargaining hard to make one of his supporters the party whip in the Assembly could not do so.
Decisions to this effect were taken at the AIADMK legislature party meeting held on Monday at the party headquarters here.
In Thursday's audio, for the first time Sasikala explicitly named the AIADMK while in previous audios she had merely referred to it as 'katchi' (the party)
In the latest clip, released by her supporters, Sasikala is heard speaking to AIADMK functionaries, including former minister Anandan.
'Introduction of NEET has made it difficult for aspirants from the marginalised communities in Tamil Nadu to pursue medical education,' MK Stalin said.
An AIADMK release said the meeting was a courtesy call and Palaniswami conveyed his condolences to Panneerselvam, whose younger brother died recently.
"All office-bearers of the AIADMK are firm that there is no place for her family in the party. We won many seats in the Assembly elections only after declaring this stand,” said Palaniswami
The actress had recently filed a police complaint alleging that the former minister had sexually abused her and forced her to abort. The Chennai police had registered a case on her complaint.
Asking her to keep away from the party, senior party leader K P Munusamy asserted that under no circumstances could Sasikala enter the AIADMK.
In an audio clip of an phone conversation between Sasikala and one of the party cadres, which has gone viral on social media, the leader is heard confirming her plans of her return in the politics.
That apart, the panel comprises representatives from the Congress, BJP, VCK and CPM.
EPS and OPS recalled that the AIADMK had donated Rs 1 crore to the relief fund during the first wave.
In his letter, the former Chief Minister said that the second wave of coronavirus has affected a large number of people all over the state.
Senior leaders of the party handed over a letter to Assembly Secretary K Srinivasan informing about the election of Edappadi K Palaniswami as the AIADMK legislature party leader.
