At least 10 AIADMK candidates announced in the second list released by the party on Wednesday, 10 March, were sacked as ministers or party functionaries by the former General Secretary and Tamil Nadu Chief Minister J Jayalalithaa.

One of the oft-repeated statements by Chief Minister Edappadi K Palaniswami and other AIADMK ministers after the demise of J Jayalalithaa in December 2016 is that the government and the party is run in her name. However, several AIADMK party men including former ministers who were sidelined by Jayalalithaa have been given seats under the administration of Edappadi K Palaniswami and O Panneerselvam.

Here’s a list of few such politicians who were sacked or removed from various positions in the capacity of an AIADMK party functionary and have been given a chance to contest in the 6 April polls by the current dispensation of the party.
