Speaking to reporters at the Madurai airport, O Panneerselvam (OPS), when asked on an official letter addressing Edappadi K Palaniswami (EPS) as AIADMK 'General Secretary' said that it was a 'wrong' information.
Till date, the Election Commission has addressed him as 'AIADMK Coordinator' in official letters, he said here on Friday.
The Election Commission on December 29 said it has developed a prototype of a Remote Electronic Voting Machine (RVM) for domestic migrant voters and has invited political parties for a demonstration on January 16. In this connection, the poll panel has reportedly sent a letter to Coordinator (Panneerselvam) and Joint Coordinator (Palaniswami).
The National Law Commission, in a letter, to AIADMK sought the views of Palaniswami on holding simultaneous elections to the Lok Sabha and State Assemblies.
The Panneerselvam camp objected to the letter as the Law Commission had referred to Palaniswami as the 'General Secretary' of the AIADMK. Kolathur D Krishnamurthy, a supporter of OPS wrote a letter to the Chairman of the Law Commission, Justice Ritu Raj Aswathi saying that the party's General Secretary post is vacant.
OPS, without making a direct reference to the law panel's letter or naming anyone specifically, said that 'artificially' problems were created.
Panneerselvam reiterated that he and Palaniswami were duly elected by party workers as coordinator and joint coordinator.
