TTV Dhinakaran: 'Only me or Sasikala deserve to be Tamil Nadu CM'

TTV big nuisance, but better to dissolve govt, says MLA

Chennai: Senior leaders of the opposition Dravida Munnetra Kazhagam (DMK) met Tamil Nadu governor C. Vidyasagar Rao on Sunday and urged him to direct chief minister Edappadi K. Palaniswami to prove he has majority support.

The ostracized party member said that everyone in the party wanted either himself or the AIADMK general secretary Sasikala wanted to become the next CM.

The group-led by Dinakaran opposed the reunion and threatened to rock the Palaniswami government by galvanizing his sleeper cells within the AIADMK. Palaniswami was sworn in as chief minister on February 16, and won a confidence vote in the assembly on February 18, with 122 MLAs backing him. Later, two more MLAs jointed the Dinakaran camp.

Tamil Nadu which has been witnessing political turmoil since the hospitalization of Jayalalithaa in September past year and chaos in the ruling AIADMK after her death in December, awaits the decision of the governor, who has been shuttling between Chennai and Mumbai as he is the governor of both Maharashtra and Tamil Nadu.

Dinakaran supporter Thanga Tamilselvan told reporters "there will be violence in the party office if such a resolution was passed". The party would express its Opposition to convening the meeting itself as it comes after the government had lost its majority since 19 MLAs of the party had given a letter to the Governor withdrawing their support to the Chief Minister. "The 19 MLAs at the resort in Puducherry are not there because of threats against them".

Ousted All India Anna Dravida Munnetra Kazhagam Deputy General Secretary TTV Dinakaran on Sunday removed Tamil Nadu Chief Minister Edappadi Palaniswami from the party's Salem District Secretary Post, ANI reported. "She would be the general secretary of the party forever".

Reacting to BJP leader Subramanian Swamy's remark that DMK working president M.K. Stalin and Mr. Dhinakaran would form a coalition government in Tamil Nadu, he said he did not wish to comment on it. Palaniswami has been replaced by S.K.Selvam in this post.
