'Victorious' TTV Dhinakaran rejects AIADMK's 'tacit understanding with DMK' charge: Expelled AIADMK MP Sasikala calls on him
Sidelined AIADMK leader T T V Dhinakaran on Monday rejected the E Palaniswamy-led ruling camp's charge of a 'tacit understanding' between him and DMK in the RK Nagar by-election, which he won.
If there is one thing Dhinakaran's victory has confirmed, it is that the EPS-OPS government's expiry date is nearing. Since February, when EPS won the trust vote managed by keeping MLAs in captivity at the resort outside Chennai, the government has not faced an electoral test. RK Nagar was therefore seen as a mini-referendum on how the people of Tamil Nadu, more so in the state capital, perceived their government. The result shows EPS and OPS have failed the test.
