AIADMK factions likely to come together before Aug 15

Edappadi Palanisamy, the man who Sasikala made the Chief Minister of Tamil Nadu before going to jail has now rebelled against the Mannargudi family.

The EPS faction in the resolution stated that Dinakaran's recent appointments of party functionaries will not disclaim with AIADMK in any manner.

Sources said that the decision was a step forward towards the reunion of the two warring factions of the AIADMK.

Moreover, the appointment of General Secretary Sasikala, who appointed him, is also under investigation.

He also played down the controversies surrounding the AIADMK and said people have their own views which need to be looked at.

AIADMK has been one among the prestigious parties of Tamil Nadu. The BJP is also not happy with the way Panneerselvam has lost steam over the last two months and feels that he has squandered a golden opportunity to emerge as the undisputed leader of the party. The party now needs 117 legislators to stay in power. This is because he had been expelled from the party in 2011 by late Chief Minister J Jayalalithaa, and had thus not been a member of the party for five consecutive years, as mandated. For Palaniswamy, it was important to get Panneerselvam on board again to bridge the numbers gap.

According to sources, the two factions of the ruling AIADMK party have given their nods to a possible merger between the two. It is understood that the BJP was nudging both the factions to unite and even consider the prospects of joining the NDA formally. "They will definitely pay for this kind of back stabbing", Dinakaran told reporters. "If the situation warrants, surgical action will be taken", he said, adding it does not matter if it was Chief Minister Palaniswami or others. Former minister KP Munusamy said two central demands of the faction are yet to be met. Sasikala moved into Jayalalithaa's house at Poes garden in 1988, soon after MGR's death and soon took over as her housekeeper, confidante and poltical aide.

With Palaniswami and Paneerselvam arriving in Delhi on Thursday evening to take part in Friday's swearing-in ceremony of new Vice-President elect Venkaiah Naidu, there was speculation as to whether they could have a meeting of sorts to thrash out the sticky points standing in the way of a merger.

BJP officials in Tamil Nadu said a senior party leader, who had come in from the Rashtriya Swayamsevak Sangh in 2015, had been in touch with both camps.
