Infighting, mudslinging intensify in AIADMK (Amma)

The mudslinging between Dairy Development Minister K T Rajenthra Bhalaji and AIADMK spokesperson Vaigai Selvan took an ugly turn with both indulging in name-calling.

Also, TTV Dhinakaran’s supporter P Vetrivel joined issue with party MP G Hari for his remarks on reining in V K Sasikala’s family.

Rajenthra Bhalaji has said former minister Vaigai Selvan has received money from private milk companies for speaking bad against him. To this, Vaigai Selvan said he would sue Bhalaji.

Meanwhile, amid leadership tussle in the ruling AIADMK (Amma), Lok Sabha deputy speaker and the party’s senior leader M Thambidurai on Tuesday said chief minister Edappadi K Palaniswami has to tell who is the party’s supremo.

Vetrivel trained the guns on party’s Lok Sabha Member G Hari saying the latter was speaking against Sasikala without reason and should be restrained by the chief minister.

Already, AIADMK legislators on Saturday criticised Lok Sabha deputy speaker M. Thambi Durai for claiming that the party’s decision to back Ram Nath Kovind in the upcoming presidential poll was jointly taken by Chief Minister Edappadi K. Palaniswami and imprisoned party general secretary V.K. Sasikala.
