Speaking to the supporters then, OPS said, “The ADMK ruled for four years under the leadership of Edappadi Palaniswami, who can be a mystery to us today after the various trials that took place after Jayalalithaa’s death.

Then whoever saw us today we are separated. My wish is that everyone should work together in unison. That is the wish of the people not only of former Chief Ministers MGR and Jayalalithaa, but some people do not accept it.
When I went to the General Assembly meeting held on 23rd June last, Edappadi Palaniswami was given a welcome in the area where my house is located to prevent me from coming. But with the help of the police, I went to the public meeting platform. When Edappadi Palaniswami came there too, Mahalingam told him to go along with him, so I waited for him. But when I arrived, Edappadi Palaniswami went alone without going to the stage with me. Everyone knows what happened after that.
As the coordinator of this party for four years, I was prevented from speaking in the general assembly meeting, but the thugs created anarchy with Rowdle. No one has prevented or controlled it, such as the executives and ex-ministers, who are shouting that they are going to build and save this movement.
After that, the coordinator and co-coordinator hastily announced on the platform that the general body meeting will be held on July 11 without approval. But not participating in the General Assembly meeting that day, some district secretaries were waiting to prevent me from entering the head office.
AIADMK head office is the property of their father’s house, it is the property of the volunteers. Mrs. Janaki presented for the party. And they are saying that I stole into the office. Why am I going to steal in my house?
It is also said that actress Nirmala from Janaki’s team acted as an agent for Bodi constituency in the elections held after MGR’s death. In fact, lawyers Jayakumar and Rajmohan were working as agents for Nirmala in Bodi constituency at that time.
A meeting was held in the leadership club regarding the defeat of the ADMK in the last parliamentary election in 2019. At that time, 10 ministers, including myself, resigned and each of them worked for the party in 4 or 5 districts each. I said that we will win the assembly elections. No one came forward for that. Jayalalitha appointed me as the election in-charge of the party in all the Assembly by-elections held since 2008.
Is Edappadi Palanichami, who calls me an aspirant, ready to resign from his post? I am also resigning from my post. “Let’s meet the people and we will know who has their support,” Edappadi Palaniswami challenged OPS among the supporters.
