AIADMK expels two of its MLAs

Special Correspondent



S.Ve. Shekher

CHENNAI: Two MLAs have been expelled from of the All India Anna Dravida Munnetra Kazhagam. General secretary Jayalalithaa announced in a statement on Wednesday the expulsion of S.Ve. Shekher (representing Mylapore), and Anitha R. Radhakrishnan (Tiruchendur).

Mr. Radhakrishnan was an AIADMK Minister between 2002 and 2006. Mr. Shekher has been a dissident. In February 2008 he rebuked the party leadership for not inviting him to a general council meeting near here. Though he eventually attended the meeting, his ties with the party had remained ruptured.

During the recent Budget session of the Assembly, he praised Deputy Chief Minister M.K. Stalin, evoking strong protest from AIADMK members. Mr. Shekher had been complaining that he was not invited to meetings of party MLAs.

Mr Radhakrishnan, who once held the portfolios of Animal Husbandry and Housing and Urban Development, was removed as the Tuticorin district secretary on Tuesday. He did not attend a meeting of district secretaries a few days ago in Kodanadu, a party functionary said.
