What is the Truth?

Edappadi Palaniswami was announced as the Interim General Secretary of AIADMK in the general meeting held in Chennai. It was also announced that OPS and his supporters would be expelled from the party. The events taking place in the AIADMK party are being watched in political circles.

Edappadi Palaniswami, who spoke among the members of the General Meeting, said, “The second resolution is historic. We have been waiting for a long time. We urge the central government to give the Bharat Ratna award to Thanthai EVR Periyar, Perarignar Anna and Revolutionary Leader Amma as soon as possible.

So these leaders were the main reason behind the formation of this party. Therefore, in order to gain fame and respect for these leaders, in recognition of their service to the nation, we have come up with the second resolution that the central government should give them the Bharat Ratna Award,” he said.


The post that Edappadi Palaniswami started his speech at the AIADMK general meeting by saying that MGR should be awarded the Bharat Ratna is false. It is understood that he spoke about the resolution passed to award Bharat Ratna to Periyar, Anna and Jayalalithaa.
