The Election Commission (EC) on Friday issued a notice to V.K. Sasikala on a petition filed by O. Paneerselvam loyalist Maitreyan and others challenging the nomination of J. Jayalalaithaa's loyalist as All India Anna Dravida Munnetra Kazhagam's (AIADMK) general secretary.

In a letter sent to Sasikala, the EC mentioned about the two petitions filed by Maitreyan.

Sasikala has been asked to reply by 28 February 2017, as stated in the letter.

Former Tamil Nadu chief minister O. Panneerselvam and leaders of his faction of the All India Anna Dravida Munnetra Kazhagam (AIADMK) today sacked jailed general secretary V.K. Sasikala from the primary membership of the party.

The sacking order was passed and authorised by former party Presidium Chairman E. Madhusudanan.

In a statement, Madhusudanan said he was sacking Sasikala from the primary membership of the AIADMK as she had brought disrepute to the party. (ANI)
