AIADMK Legislators to meet President seeking removal of TN CM: Selvan

AIADMK Legislators to meet President seeking removal of TN CM: Selvan”

M.K. Stalin also stated that this is the main reason he is chose to meet President Ram Nath Kovind tomorrow.

Notwithstanding the calls for floor-test growing wider and shriller, Tamil Nadu Governor Ch Vidyasagar Rao refused to direct the government to take a confidence vote from the Assembly, maintaining that the ongoing strife was an internal affair of the ruling party.

As respondents in the case, General Secretary V.K. Sasikala and Deputy General Secretary T.T.V. Dinakaran belonging to the AIADMK (Amma) faction should be heard in the case, the petition filed on Tuesday said. He has already removed a number of ministers and other functionaries from various positions in the AIADMK and gave them to his supporters.

Addressing the media today, the Opposition party Viduthalai Chiruthaigal Katchi (VCK) leader, Thol.

Their meeting with Rao comes in the wake of the MLAs loyal to sidelined AIADMK deputy chief TTV Dhinakaran calling on the governor on August 22 and expressing lack of confidence in the chief minister.

- To strengthen the party to be capable to run for another 100 years and to celebrate the MGR centenary in a big way.

The fallout within the ruling party follows the rapprochement between two factions led by Palaniswami and O Panneerselvam, the former chief minister. "We will not let any betrayer occupy the Chief Minister's seat", Dhinakaran told reporters in response to a query. With the Dhinakaran camp, which claims to have support of 21 MLAs, filing a petition before the EC, political observers say it would be imperative on the poll body to hear them as well before taking any decision. "Two Leaves", the official symbol of the AIADMK, was frozen in March after both the EPS and OPS factions staked claim for the same. Later, a third faction emerged under Palanisamy as it developed differences with the Sasikala-Dinakaran faction.

Sengottaiyan's sudden meeting with a Union minister also fuelled rumours in Chennai that there might be a major shift in the state Cabinet in Tamil Nadu as Dinakaran has said that he was open to anyone but Palaniswami and O Panneerselvam for the post of chief minister. Dinakaran contested the election as an AIADMK (Amma) candidate. Rao, who is the governor of Maharashtra, is now holding additional charge of Tamil Nadu. This would be the second time in six months that the State Assembly would witness a floor test, if it happens.
