All India Anna Dravida Munnetra Kazhagam (AIADMK) interim general secretary K Palaniswami on Tuesday, 27 September, announced the removal of senior leader Panruti S Ramachandran from the party for alleged anti-party activities.

The action came in the wake of Ramachandran reportedly making some critical remarks against the interim party chief.

In a party statement, Palaniswami said Ramachandran was being removed as the party's Organisation Secretary, as well as from the AIADMK's primary membership for bringing "disrepute" to the organisation.

Ramachandran "went against party principles and rules," he added.

Meanwhile, Palaniswami's rival O Panneerselvam, who insists that he is the AIADMK "coordinator", announced "appointing" Ramachandran as the party's "Political Advisor."

The Madras High Court had earlier upheld a 11 July decision of the AIADMK general council, its highest decision-making body, to 'expel' Panneerselvam and some of his associates.
