"The chances of the panel holding talks are high," Raju told a Tamil TV Channel. He said that since there was a "split between siblings", it would not be fair on the part of either side to put terms and conditions for the merger talks. Meanwhile, the O Panneerselvam camp took to Twitter to express its willingness to hold talks with the AIADMK (Amma) faction.

"The AIADMK (Amma) faction has constituted a team to hold talks. We are ready to hold consultations with that team if it meets us," the twitter handle, @OfficeofOPS, said.
