AIADMK factions likely to come together before Aug 15

TN CM Edappadi Palanisamy sacks TTV Dinakaran from AIADMK

Chennai: The stage is now set for the merger of the two factions of the AIADMK with the camp led by chief minister Edappadi K Palaniswami openly declaring the appointment of TTV Dhinakaran as deputy general secretary by his aunt VK Sasikala as "illegal" and asking him to refrain from "creating confusion" in the party through his actions.

Two warring factions of Tamil Nadu's ruling party appeared close to a merger on Thursday in a move likely to cap months of political drama that has seen two chief ministers and numerous rebellions in one of India's richest states.

Chief Minister Palaniswami has convened a meeting of ministers and top leaders at party headquarters on Thursday.

Before her arrest, then chief minister Panneerselvam was locked in a power tussle with Sasikala sparking a political crisis on who will be late J Jayalalithaa's successor. "We request the party cadre to ignore them", a leader of EPS faction said. "His re-induction into the party on February 14 and his appointment as deputy general secretary the following day was in violation of party bylaw 30 (V)".

"Whatever appointments were made by T.T.V. Dinakaran are not according to the party law".

The developments that followed has now led to a third faction led by TTV Dinakaran, deputy general secretary and Sasikala's nephew. Although it is believed that OPS was expecting to became the CM again with a fresh election, everyone came to realise that a fresh Assembly election might just turn the voters away from AIADMK, especially in the wake of allegations of financial irregularities and the long ongoing turmoil in the party. There are reports that both the factions may hold merger talks in New Delhi. They are now headed to Delhi to attend the swearing-in ceremony of the new Vice President Venkaiah Naidu. "The signatories of today's resolution, including Palaniswami, had endorsed Sasikala as general secretary (in December last year)".

Dhinakaran has faced a challenge from senior AIADMK leaders ever since he was was named deputy general secretary by his aunt Sasikala, who is now lodged in a Bengaluru prison after being convicted in the disproportionate assets case. In a dig at the CM, he has questioned why others appointed by Sasikala were staying on.

Panneerselvam, who claims Jayalalithaa (Amma) told him to take over as CM when she was in hospital, said her spirit later told him that he should come out and tell the truth to the people of Tamil Nadu.
