AIADMK crisis: Palaniswamy faction goes into a huddle as Panneerselvam camp places demands
The AIADMK Amma faction on Friday went into a huddle under Chief Minister K Palaniswamy.
Chennai: The AIADMK Amma faction on Friday went into a huddle under Chief Minister K Palaniswamy, a day after the O Panneerselvam camp set formal removal of party General Secretary VK Sasikala and her deputy TTV Dinakaran as conditions for merger talks.
Palaniswamy was joined by his cabinet colleagues D Jayakumar, C Ve Shanmugham, SP Velumani, Rajya Sabha MP R Vaithilingam among others at party headquarters.
Hardening its stance for merger talks, the Panneerselvam camp had on Thursday demanded that the faction led by Palaniswamy formally expel Sasikala and Dinakaran besides about 30 other members of their family from the party.
Following the cabinet's revolt against him early this week, Dinakaran had said he was "stepping aside" in the interest of the party.
A top leader in the Panneerselvam camp, KP Munusamy, had on Thursday said the first demand was getting the resignation of Sasikala and Dinakaran and later their formal expulsion along with 30 other members of their family.
The Panneerselvam camp has also sought a CBI probe into the circumstances leading to former Chief Minister Jayalalithaa's death on 5 December last year.
