“The comments by some of our party brethren through the media, over party leadership and how the future course should be are not desirable,” they said in the statement. They added that though partymen were making comments only due to their affinity and commitment to the party, “it is necessary to be conscious of the circumstances.”

The comments made by partymen should not help those who were working against the interests of the AIADMK, the leaders said while calling for maintaining discipline. “Do remember that there is time and place in the form of general body meeting and executive council meeting and others meetings for those wanting to make any comment for the development of our party,” they said.

Meanwhile, BJP state president Tamilisai Soundararajan refused to comment on the debate over a unitary versus dual leadership in the AIADMK. Nonetheless, she said that under current circumstances, the AIADMK government is stable and in the recently concluded bypolls, people voted for the State government to continue. “When the State government continues in a stable manner, many of Central schemes can come to Tamil Nadu. So it is better for them [AIADMK leaders] to ensure that there is no confusion in their party,” she said.
