The Madras High Court on 11 September dismissed a civil suit filed by Perambur MLA P. Vetrivel which sought orders to prohibit both factions of All India Anna Dravida Munnetra Kazhagam ( AIADMK) from conducting a joint general council meeting on 12 September.

Dubbing the suit as a vexatious litigation, Justice C.V. Karthikeyan also slapped a fine of Rupees 1 lakh on the MLA.

The court said that the litigation wasted its's time.

The Court said, "Approach Election Commission instead of coming to us, if you do not wish to attend the meeting better stay at home."

The general council is slated to be conducted tomorrow. And it assumes importance as EPS is expected to hand down resolutions against TTV and his band of supporters.

The decisions taken tomorrow might be in line with the demands made by O Panneerselvam and camp, before a merger is inked.
