New Delhi :

In a major setback for TTV  Dhinakaran, the Tamil Nadu Assembly Speaker on Monday disqualified 18 rebel AIADMK MLAs supporting sacked party general secretary V K Sasikala.

Tamil Nadu Speaker P Dhanapal passed the order in this regard. Dhinakaran had already stated that they will move court if the Speaker disqualifies his loyalist MLAs.

On Sunday, Dhinakaran had demanded Tamil Nadu Chief MinisterPalaniswami’s resignation, saying that “he is a chief minister because of Sasikala.” The Tamil Nadu chief minister E Palaniswami alleged that Dhinakaran wants to topple his government by colluding with the opposition DMK. 

Of late, Sasikala was expelled in the general council meeting of which Dhinakaran faction did not approve and approached the Election Commission.
