Dhinakaran PTI He was reacting shortly after the merged AIADMK factions adopted a resolution revoking the appointment of his aunt VK Sasikala as AIADMK general secretary and his appointment as deputy general secretary at the party’s general council meeting "This is not a valid general council meeting Only the party general secretary can call a meeting of the general council meeting" Dhinakaran said He said even when around 500 members of the general council want a meeting of the council it is the general secretary who has to call the meeting Dhinakaran said the Madras High Court on Monday has said the decisions of the meeting are subject to its final judgement in a case filed against the holding of the meeting Citing the resolution that states that the party members cannot visualise anybody else as general secretary other than the late J Jayalalithaa he wondered whether the same logic would also apply to the chief minister’s post Dhinakaran said it was Deputy Chief Minister O Panneerselvam who broke away from the party and was instrumental in the Election Commission freezing the party’s ‘two leaves’ symbol "Our workers and the public have been raising the question about

both scored twice inflicting Juergen Klopp’s heaviest loss in management in 11 years (Source: AP) Related News Gabriel Jesus and Leroy Sane both scored twice to steer Manchester City to a 5-0 victory over Liverpool in the Premier League on Saturday inflicting Juergen Klopp’s worst loss as a manager in 11 years (English Premier League Home | Fixtures | Standings/Table) Liverpool’s capitulation at the Etihad Stadium unfolded after Sadio Mane was sent off in the 37th minute for a high challenge on Ederson that led to the goalkeeper being carried off on a stretcher At the time City was only leading through Sergio Aguero’s 24th-minute strike Once City had a man advantage Gabriel Jesus netted again in first-half stoppage time and eight minutes into the second half The Brazil forward was then substituted and his replacement Sane grabbed two goals as well “We played really smart” City midfielder Kevin De Bruyne said “We didn’t give Liverpool time and if you score a few goals it makes it a lot easier” It was a miserable Liverpool debut for Alex-Oxlade Chamberlain whose last game for Arsenal was in a 4-0 rout by Klopp’s team before the international break Liverpool’s optimism has been quickly deflated Not since Klopp’s Mainz was beaten 6-1 by Werder Bremen in October 2006 has the German experienced a heavier loss in his coaching career “It’s an experience a very bad one but that’s how life is” Klopp said “You have to take what you get and make the best of it” This was the type of commanding performance City was missing in the opening weeks of the season even as it collected seven out of nine points Fernandinho tested Liverpool goalkeeper Simon Mignolet from distance before De Bruyne split the Liverpool defense open with a superb throughball for Aguero’s opener The Argentina forward rounded Mignolet and tucked home his sixth goal in as many league home appearances against Liverpool Liverpool responded with Mane racing clear only to be felled on the edge of the area by Fernandinho Emre Can blasted the resulting free kick wide before Salah failed to beat Ederson from close range The game’s major talking point came when Mane chased a long ball over the top and raised his boot as Ederson came rushing out He accidentally caught the Brazilian in the head and the `keeper instantly fell to the ground The game was held up for eight minutes as Ederson received treatment before being carried off City later reported that Ederson was not concussed and he was checked for facial fractures at a nearby club medical facility before returning to the stadium Referee Jon Moss deemed Mane’s actions worthy of a red card but Klopp disagreed “In the first moment everyone thought it was really bad” Klopp told broadcaster Sky Sports “It was unlucky It was an accident The goalkeeper comes out Sadio wants the ball To get a red card in a game like this is really unlucky” The incident seemed to dampen Liverpool’s spirits and the visitors had a let-off when Gabriel Jesus’ header was ruled out for offside It proved only a minor reprieve as he headed home another effort from De Bruyne’s cross just before the break City soon killed off the game in the second half Aguero had another strike chalked off but again that didn’t matter much as then he raced onto Fernandinho’s pass to tee up Gabriel Jesus for the third Liverpool was being carved open all too easily and Benajmin Mendy combined well with Sane for a well-worked fourth in the 77th Mignolet produced a sprawling save to deny Aguero but Sane had the final word by curling in a superb fifth in stoppage time from 25 yards (meters) “I wanted to use my chance today and it was a good day for me” Sane said “and I especially enjoyed the second goal” For all the latest Sports News download Indian Express
