Tamil Nadu Chief Minister O Panneerselvam went to Natarajan's house to hand her the resolution, which she accepted. She will soon formally take charge as interim general secretary of the party. 

The resolution read, "Until Ms. Sasikala is elected under the party's by-law no.20, section.2, she has been unanimously appointed as general secretary. Ms. Sasikala will have all powers vested with the general secretary."

The meeting began on Thursday with a homage being paid to late Tamil Nadu chief minister J Jayalalithaa. 

As many as 14 resolutions were passed in AIADMK general body meet, including a resolution demanding Jayalalithaa's birthday to be celebrated as "National Farmers Day."

Another resolution was taken to confer former TN CM Jayalalithaa with Magsaysay Award and Nobel prize for World Peace.

On Wednesday, suspended AIADMK Rajya Sabha MP Sasikala Pushpa's husband and lawyers were beaten up outside the party office when they tried to file for nomination.  The leaders of the party said that Pushpa wasn't a part of the party and had no right to file a nomination. 

Panneerselvam also arrived for the meeting. However, the party is expected to asked VK Sasikala, Jayalalithaa's friend and confidante, to take control as party chief and Tamil Nadu chief. 

More details awaited.
