The Election Commission should consider the extraordinary political situation in Tamil Nadu and soon decide on the legal status of AIADMK General Secretary V.K. Sasikala, a former party parliamentarian said on Wednesday.

K.C.Palaniswamy also said party cadres who oppose Sasikala would start the movement to retrieve the AIADMK headquarters, Jaya TV and the Poes Garden residence of late Chief Minister J. Jayalalithaa from the occupiers.

“I have filed a case in the Madras High Court to direct the Election Commission to decide on my complaint against the election of Sasikala as AIADMK’s interim General Secretary,” Palaniswamy told IANS.

“However the EC should decided on this issue fast in the interest of Tamil Nadu as there is an uncertain political situation prevailing,” Palaniswamy added.

He said Sasikala does not have any power to dismiss any party office bearer and O.Panneerselvam legally continues to be the party Treasurer.

Early on Wednesday the AIADMK dismissed Panneerselvam as Treasurer.
