AIADMK's Edappadi K.Palaniswamy faction defies TTV Dinakaran; passes resolution against him

  • Mergers Of AIADMK Factions A Few Steps Away

The resolution, however, stopped short of expelling him and Sasikala from the party, which is one of the main pre-condition of the OPS camp for the merger.

Reminding EPS that it was his aunt and AIADMK (Amma) General Secretary VK Sasikala who made him Chief Minister, TTV went on to state that he had the power to take action against those who had joined hands with the betrayers (OPS faction). The other two factions are led by Palaniswami and Sasikala.

"J Jayalalithaa on December 19, 2011, is illegal as it is against the party law 30 (v)", said the release signed by all participants except senior ministers KA Sengottaiyan and Dindigul Sreenivasan. However, senior ministers in the EPS faction maintain that the reconciliation talks have been more or less finalised. Finally, OPS was named the CM and the oath-taking ceremony was held without any delay. The party also wants the AIADMK government to continue, since an election in Tamil Nadu now will be to the advantage of the Opposition Dravida Munnetra Kazhagam. Chief Minister informed that the merger plan has been given by TTV Dhinakaran who is the party's Deputy General Secretary. For the first time, Panneerselvam indicated that the merger efforts could see the light of the day when he said any decision on unification would keep in mind the "aspirations and wishes of the cadre". Reacting to the resolution that may well end his stint as deputy general secretary, Dhinakaran termed the move "invalid". But Dhinakaran soon wanted the "throne" to himself. Although he had to spend 40 days in Delhi's Tihar jail, he later got bail and returned to Chennai. "They will definitely pay for this kind of back stabbing", Dinakaran told reporters.

Meanwhile, murmurs over the merger continued. They knew who were ungrateful and who were good people and it would be reflected in the 2019 Parliamentary elections.


With Naidu out of the picture (now that he has become the vice-president of the country), BJP president Amit Shah is said to have taken direct control of Tamil Nadu affairs.

Dinakaran removed, EPS faction adopts resolution against Sasikala.

In February, Sasikala was found guilty of corruption by the Supreme Court and was sentenced to four years in prison.

This is where the DMK seems to have gained from the internal bickering in the AIADMK besides various allegations of financial irregularities against the party which have been raised by the opposition regularly in the Assembly. It may even welcome the entry of the AIADMK in the Modi government.
