Heaping praises on her "political virtues", they pleaded with her to lead the party and got the general council to anoint her as interim general secretary though she suffered disqualification given the fact that she was not a primary member of the party for five continuous years.

The resolution further said that the Tamil Nadu Chief Minister, E. Palanisamy and his deputy, O. Panneerselvam, shall retrieve the party and its symbol.

With the annulment of the appointment of Dinakaran as Deputy General Secretary, the appointments made by him are also struck down. With the warring factions, led by former CM O Panneerselvam and current CM, E Palaniswami, burying the hatchet to remove all traces of influence of Sasikala's supporters, the party can aspire to achieve a spell of stability.

Referring to the Madras High Court's order that decisions taken at today's General Council will be subject to the final outcome of an appeal on the matter, he said only then will it be known if the ouster of Sasikala was 'valid.

"We will convene the real general council meeting of AIADMK soon with prior approval from the party general secretary V K Sasikala", he told reporters at Mannargudi in Tiruvarur district. Panneerselvam and Palaniswami, who are Co-ordinator and Joint Coordinator respectively of AIADMK, were vested with full executive powers. Rajya Sabha member R Vaithilingam an nounced the resolution supported by all general council members present at the meet. He said his party will never join hands with DMK. "To protect our party, I will go to any extent", he said, adding that his faction has 21 MLAs on its side. The ruling faction is spreading the falsehood that we are in alignment with DMK.

Saraswathi said as per the amended rule, a primary member who had the power to elect the top most leader of the party can now elect only the local level office bearers.This is a great letdown for the party cadres who slog it out during the elections and at other times, she said.
