Election Commission shocks Sasikala

The Election Commission refused to accept the reply filed by AIADMK on behalf of the party’s General Secretary Sasikala challenging her appointment as party’s General Secretary. Dinakaran, Sasikala's nephew, was appointed as interim deputy general secretary of the party on February 23. The ground cited by the poll panel is that the reply was signed by TTV Dinakaran, who is not a party office-bearer as per records available with the EC. The Election Commission asked to submit all the documents before March 10th.
