Bengaluru civil court orders interim stay on AIDMK general council meeting

Bengaluru civil court orders interim stay on AIDMK general council meeting

In an huge blow for TTV Dinakaran, the Madras High Court has refused to stay All India Anna Dravida Munnetra Kazhagam (AIADMK) general council meet to be held today.

While the DMK and the Congress have been urging the Tamil Nadu Governor to direct Palanisamy to prove his majority in the House, no decision on the same has been taken yet. The petition by Vetrivel said the meeting convened by the ruling campwas illegal and sought stay stating that the General Secretary (GS) and Deputy GS alone has the powers to convene such meetings. The judge said that being an MLA, the applicant should have taken note of a circular issued by the High Court earlier, which stated that MPs and MLAs should first get the nod of the Chief Justice for filing petitions.

The court even asked Vetrivel that if he was so annoyed with the meeting he should stay at home and there was no need to file the petition.

The school, according to the SIT, also did not carry out the mandatory police verification checks while hiring the support staff. The victim's father, Barun Chandra Thakur, has also requested a national tribunal to look into such cases across the country.

Also, no signature was found on the notice, he said.

The resolutions expected to be passed by the general council, under the chairmanship of presidium chairman E. Madhusudhanan, are sacking of V. K. Sasikala from the general secretary's post and setting up of a steering committee that will take care of party affairs until a new chief is chosen. Coming down heavily on the applicant, the judge in his order said he did not have any cause of action. The legislator then went for an appeal. Now in jail convicted of a disproportionate assets case, Sasikala's nephew TTV Dhinakaran called for a stay order on the GC meet, however their petition to the high court was rejected, as were subsequent appeals. He termed it a condemnable practice wherein a "Should be plaintiff" is shown as the defendant so that he could effectively back-stab other contesting defendants at the opportune moment. When Vetrivel's counsel made a request to grant liberty to the petitioner to approach the Election Commission against the general council meet, the judge observed that no one could prevent any person from approaching an appropriate forum to vent grievances.

Following the dismissal, Senior Advocate TV Ramanujam mentioned the matter for urgent appeal before Chief Justice Indira Banerjee.
