AIADMK General Secretary Sasikala Natarajan had appointed her nephew TTV Dinakaran as her deputy hours before she was sent to a jail in Bengaluru.

However, on Thursday a resolution passed in a party meeting headed by Chief Minister Edappadi K Palaniswamy declared that Dinakaran's elevation was in violation of party bylaws.

A delegation of AIADMK Puratchi Thalaivi Amma camp of O Panneerselvam today submitted an affidavit along with the resolution with the poll panel to back their demands.

"We had already urged the EC to declare position of AIADMK General Secretary Sasikala and deputy GS TTV Dinakaran as invalid as it was against party constitution. The resolution which was passed yesterday adds strength to our case," senior leader KP Munusamy.


MLA K Pandiarajan, former MP Manoj Pandian and former state minister Natham R Viswanathan were other members of the delegation.
