Crucial AIADMK meet in Chennai, governor expected to spell out decision on trust vote

Today is going to be another day of developments as far as the AIADMK is concerned. Deputy chief minister O Panneerselvam and chief minister Edappadi K Palaniswami will chair an AIADMK top leaders meeting, during which action on Sasikala’s family, especially TTV Dhinakaran, will be decided.

Also, Tamil Nadu governor Ch Vidysagar Rao, who is being urged by opposition parties and rebel MLAs to direct the CM to prove majority in the Assembly, is expected to spell out his decision today.

Continuing his sacking spree of AIADMK leaders from their party posts to establish his supremacy within the party, ‘ousted’ Deputy General Secretary Dhinakaran on Sunday dismissed Chief Minister as the party’s Salem Suburban District Secretary.

The opposition led by DMK on Sunday petitioned Rao for ordering an immediate floor test in the state Assembly and directing Palaniswami to prove the majority of his government.

Meanwhile, senior minister Dindigul Srinivasan, has said “a film is running and its climax will soon happen in the state Assembly.”

In the meantime, there is a buzz that the AIADMK will soon join the NDA and be a part of the Modi government at the Centre.

A senior BJP leader was quoted as saying that it is only a matter of time before an announcement is made on this.
