CHENNAI: The former chief minister and ousted AIADMK leader O Panneerselvam on Friday claimed that his party's general council meeting will be held soon under his leadership.
The deputy opposition leader of the House said currently, he is in the process of appointing party district secretaries. "After appointing district secretaries, the general council meeting will be held", he said.
Stating that apart from the party general council meeting, district secretaries meeting will also be conducted, Panneerselvam said he would meet and consult all the district office bearers before conducting both meetings. "I will tour across all the districts and would meet the functionaries", he said.
