He pitched for the AIADMK ending factionalism to provide a stable government in Tamil Nadu to fulfil the promises of late chief minister J Jayalalithaa.

The Centre wants factionalism in AIADMK to be sorted out to ensure a stable government to fulfil the promises made by Jayalalithaa to the Tamil Nadu people, he said.

The Centre would not interfere in the internal matters of AIADMK, but only wished for a stable government in Tamil Nadu, Naidu said.

He said the BJP had not made any choice between O Panneerselvam and E Palaniswamy. "We have no preference," he said.
