The All India Anna Dravida Munnetra Kazhagam, the main opposition party, has called a meeting of its general council and executive committee in Chennai on June 23 to review a number of pressing issues facing the party as well as recent political developments.
The meeting is significant because it comes amid growing dissatisfaction among party members that ally Bharatiya Janata Party is aiming to overshadow it in its fight against the government Dravida Munnetra Kazhagam as the main opposition party.
According to a party insider, the council would likely debate a strategy for the 2024 Lok Sabha election as well as a strategy for returning to power in the 2026 assembly election.
On June 23, AIADMK coordinator O Panneerselvam and co-coordinator K Palaniswami announced that the meeting will be held at a marriage hall in suburban Vanagaram and will be presided over by the party’s interim presidium chairman A Tamilmagan Hussain.
Individual invitations would be extended to members, according to the top leaders, who also requested that all office bearers attend the meeting.
