TIRUCHY: Edappadi K Palaniswami has been utilising the party just for his personal gain and any true AIADMK cadre will never allow the party to be enjoyed by an individual, said R Vaithilingam, a close associate of O Panneerselvam on Friday.
Vaithilingam met VK Sasikala at Kavarapattu village near Orathanadu in Thanjavur district on the way to a private function. Though the duo met on the road ‘accidentally,’ the cadre close to Vaithilingam said it was a ‘planned’ meeting and the duo had discussed about the status of AIADMK and future plans for around 20 minutes.
While Sasikala has been calling for a ‘united AIADMK’ and her nephew TTV Dhinakaran too is on the same mindset, it seems the OPS camp has almost fixed to induct both Sasikala and Dhinakaran. At this juncture, the meeting of Vaithilingam with Sasikala has given a clear call to the cadres and it seems they have been charting out plans to lead the party without EPS.
To prove this, Vaithilingam, said, “EPS is trying his very best to hijack the party just for his personal gain and the cadre will teach him a fitting lesson.”
