Dhinakaran elected AMMK general secretary
T.T.V. Dhinakaran, deputy general secretary of the Amma Makkal Munnetra Kazhagam (AMMK), was elected general secretary of the organisation at a meeting of office-bearers and senior functionaries in Chennai on Friday.
The AMMK, which was floated as a temporary organisation, will now be registered as a political party with the Election Commission of India. He replaced his aunt, V.K. Sasikala, who held the post since the party’s inauguration in March 2018. Sasikala is serving her sentence at a jail in Bengaluru. “As soon as she is out of jail, she will function as president of the party,” Mr. Dhinakaran told reporters. Namakkal S. Anbalagan, chairman of the presidium of the party, was made vice-president.
