O Panneerselvam's brother O Raja ousted from AIADMK for 'acting against party principles and bringing disrepute'
A statement signed by AIADMK leader and chief minister E Palaniswami and Panneerselvam said Raja was expelled 'for having acted against the party’s principles and ideologies'.
O Raja, Tamil Nadu deputy chief minister O Panneerselvam’s brother, was ousted from the ruling All India Anna Dravida Munnetra Kazhagam (AIADMK) on Wednesday.
A statement signed by Chief Minister E Palaniswami and Panneerselvam said Raja was expelled "for having acted against the party’s principles and ideologies, and for bringing disrepute to the party."
According to News18, Raja has also been divested of all the posts and powers that he previously held. The two leaders, in a short statement, said that Raja has been sacked from all posts, including the AIADMK's primary membership.
"From today onwards, Raja is being removed from all posts, including the primary membership," they said.
Raja had violated party discipline, the two leaders said and urged AIADMK workers not to have any contact with him.
The move comes on a day when Raja was elected to head a milk cooperative, NDTV reported.
The statement was posted on AIADMK's official Twitter handle.
