AIADMK has called for the meeting with its headquarters functionaries, district secretaries MPs and MLAs on September 25, 2023.

The meeting will be chaired by general secretary Edappadi K. Palaniswami at the party headquarters in Chennai, according to a press release. 

The meeting announcement comes amid a friction between AIADMK and BJP State president K. Annamalai.

AIADMK has declared that BJP is no longer its ally, while Mr. Annamalai has said there is no rift between the two parties.

A delegation of former AIADMK ministers, including M. Thambi Durai, S.P. Velumani, P. Thangamani, K.P. Munusamy, Natham R. Viswanthan and C.V. Shanmugam had met BJP’s national president, J.P. Nadda on Friday and briefed him on the state of ties with the Tamil Nadu unit of the national party.

Meanwhile, AIADMK’s organisation secretary and former Minister D. Jayakumar said there is no change in the party’s stance that the BJP was no longer an ally of his party.

“There is no change of opinion on the announcement made on September 18 that BJP is no longer an ally of AIADMK. I don’t want to make any further comments before tomorrow’s meeting. Let us wait and watch,” he told reporters on Sunday.
