AIADMK crisis: Dinakaran complains Tamil Nadu police harassing MLAs loyal to him

AIADMK crisis: Dinakaran complains Tamil Nadu police harassing MLAs loyal to him

"When asked as to what renovation the civic body is planning on the ground, the officials told us that the stage was undergoing renovation", said Manoharan.

The "sacked" party deputy chief also ruled out his faction having any direct or indirect pact with M K Stalin-led DMK, saying that party "is our primary rival".

Of the 234 members of the Legislative Assembly, the present government enjoys the support of only 113, excluding the Speaker, against the minimum requirement of 117 MLAs.

Speaking to reporters in Chennai, the combative leader also alleged that Palanisamy had tried to "adopt short-cut" method of facing a floor test of his government on Monday by disqualifying 18 MLAs supporting him.

One of the 19 MLAs, S T K Jakkaiyan had since switched to Palaniswami's camp and he had also reportedly appeared before Dhanapal and given his explanation.

The rebel leader threatened to pull down the government "to save the AIADMK", the ruling party in Tamil Nadu that has been in turmoil since the death of its supremo J Jayalalithaa in December previous year.

"The Governor delayed (on directing floor test), but DMK won't keep quiet".

After ProPublica informed Facebook about their system, the company then pulled out several anti-Semitic ad categories. Both the social network and the advertising platform will have to deal with this more head-on going forward.

Saravanan further said that the party wants the present state government to go because they are destroying the state of Tamil Nadu and in these last six months they have done nothing. Apart from DMK, Congress Legislature Party, IUML Legislature Party and all other opposition parties have already given a request to the Governor to direct the Chief Minister to prove his majority in the House, petitioner pointed out.

"I repeatedly say that DMK is our primary rival".

Mr. Stalin could not even become the president of his own party and was still the working president, Mr. Jayaraman said and added: "His dream to become the Chief Minister would not come true".

"You should question me if only I align with DMK after this government goes", he said.

In Delhi, meanwhile, the Dinakaran faction approached the Election Commission, contending that the AIADMK general council meeting called by Palaniswami and the decisions taken, including the sacking of Sasikala as general secretary, were invalid.

Earlier, the AIADMK, in its general council meeting, had passed a resolution, according to which jailed party general secretary V.K. Sasikala stood expelled from the party and the post of the temporary general secretary forfeited.
