Former minister Sellur K Raju said there was no controversy in the AIADMK over the Sasikala issue. He later told reporters that he had come to Madurai on Thursday to file a petition with the district collector seeking the removal of the encroachments.
“There is no controversy in the AIADMK over the Sasikala issue. After co-ordinator O. Panneerselvam commented on Sasikala, co-coordinator Edappadi K. Palanisamy did not comment. The coordinator just said that everyone should be consulted. There is nothing wrong with what he said as a coordinator.
Other executives have objected, as it was a misunderstanding of the idea of consulting on local elections. I don’t want to turn those comments into controversy now”. Thus he said.
