In a veiled attack on sacked AIADMK general secretary VK Sasikala’s nephew TTV Dhinakaran, Tamil Nadu Chief Minister Edappadi K Palaniswami on Wednesday said people who had never faced polls were “dreaming” of coming to power.
He affirmed that his “stable” government could not be destabilised by anyone.
Speaking at the birth centenary celebrations of AIADMK founder M G Ramachandran, he also attacked DMK leader M K Stalin for “dreaming” about unseating his party from power.
“Those who have never faced the people through elections are dreaming of coming to power, toppling the government and splitting the AIADMK,” Palaniswami said, in an apparent attack on Dhinakaran, a former Rajya Sabha member who is spearheading a rebellion against him in the party.
Dhinakaran, locked in an intense tussle with the Palaniswami camp, has been demanding the resignation of the chief minister.
He has stepped up his attack on Palaniswami and vowed to send “home” his regime, after the AIADMK general council annulled VK Sasikala’s appointment to the top party post earlier this month.
