Tamil Nadu: After AIADMK merger, MLAs loyal to Dhinkaran revolt against CM Palaniswami, DMK demands trust vote

New Delhi :  

After the merger of both AIADMK factions-O Panneerselvam and E Palaniswami camps- in Tamil Nadu, a political crisis erupted on Tuesday in the state when 19 MLAs came out in support of TTV Dhinakaran (relative of jailed party general secretary V K Sasikala) and met governor C Vidyasagar Rao. The MLAs said that they have lost their confidence in Tamil Nadu chief minister E Palaniswami.

Thanga Tamil Selvan, AIADMK MLA, told media that they have no confidence in Tamil Nadu chief minister and conveyed the same to the Governor.

Around 10-15 MLAs have sent to a resort in Pududcherry. P.Vetriivel, MLA of Dinakaran-Sasikala camp said there priority is party. He said, “govtmay come and go but we have to safeguard party.”

When asked that MLAs have been sent to Puducherry, Vetriivel said, “What is the problem? Let them go to Pondicherry.”

TTV Dhinakaran has sacked party MP Vaithilingam after the latter had said that Sasikala will be removed from the party.

On the other hand, DMK leader MK Stalin wrote a letter to Tamil Nadu Governor C Vidyasagar Rao requesting him to direct Edappadi K Palaniswami to prove his majority in the assembly immediately.

While talking to media, Satalin said, ”My information is that 3 more AIADMK MLAs have also withdrawn support, that makes it 22 MLAs in total. We demand a trust vote.”
