No floor test in Tamil Nadu Assembly till September 20: Madras HC

T T V Dhinakaran

The 19 lawmakers have submitted a letter to the Governor withdrawing their support to Chief Minister Palaniswami. "When asked as to what renovation the civic body is planning on the ground, the officials told us that the stage was undergoing renovation", said Manoharan.

The "sacked" party deputy chief Dhinakaran appointed P Palaniappan as the new party headquarter secretary.

In the plea, the DMK had raised concerns that the Speaker might disqualify the 19 MLAs affiliated to ousted AIADMK leader T T V Dinakaran if the test was not held immediately.

An AIADMK MLA on Thursday told reporters that the TTV Dhinakaran faction has chose to meet the President soon over a wide range of issues.

"The short-cut adopted by Palanisamy is, he tried to have the floor test by Monday (apparently September 18) after disqualification (of his supporting MLAs)", he alleged.

Stalin had, on Sunday, called on the governor and urged him to direct the Palaniswami government to prove its majority in the Assembly within a week, in the wake of the revolt by the 19 AIADMK MLAs against the chief minister last month.

One of them shifted camps to support Palanisamy later.

The DMK and the Dinakaran faction fear that the Speaker would act against the 19 lawmakers so that the government wins the floor test. "They want elections to happen and so they moved the court (for floor test)", he said. "The minority government will try to show that it has majority in the Assembly", the counsel for DMK told the court. He said his party will never join hands with DMK. K P Munusamy, a voracious critic of Sasikala clan, said Dhinakaran was all out to take revenge and was looking for parties like DMK to team up with.

Mr. Stalin could not even become the president of his own party and was still the working president, Mr. Jayaraman said and added: "His dream to become the Chief Minister would not come true".

Meanwhile, Dhinakaran, who along with his aunt VK Sasikala were recently removed from top posts in Tamil Nadu's ruling party, has also approached the Election Commission (EC) urging it to declare the recent AIADMK General Council meet "illegal".

The meeting in Chennai two days ago had also cancelled all appointments and decisions taken by Sasikala as party chief between December 30, 2016, and February 15, 2017, including the appointment of Dinakaran as deputy general secretary.
