T T V Dhinakaran
In the 234-member state Assembly, AIADMK has 134 MLAs including the Speaker.
September 14: Dravida Munnetra Kazhagam (DMK) on Thursday rubbished the speculations of sidelined All India Anna Dravida Munnetra Kazhagam (AIADMK) deputy general secretary T.T.V. Dinakaran joining hands with them and added that same interest doesn't mean joining hands together.
To this, the Court asked what action was being taken against the MLAs as the notice period, seeking explanation from them, ended today.
The Madras High Court had on Thursday directed that no floor test be held in the state Assembly till September 20.
Dinakaran on Wednesday said that he would never go with the DMK, amid speculations that his faction would part ways from the merged factions of chief minister E. Palanisamy and his predecessor O. Panneerselvam.
One of the 19 MLAs, S T K Jakkaiyan had since switched to Palaniswami's camp and he had also reportedly appeared before Dhanapal and given his explanation.
Why Ryan, undercut by Trump, may actually emerge stronger
Ted Cruz, R-Texas, also railed against the idea Wednesday. "This is important, and this a big debate in Washington right now". Ryan says the GOP wants to enact a tax cut into law by the end of this year, not simply to push a bill through the House.
One seat is vacant since the death of Chief Minister J. Jayalalithaa past year.
He claimed that there was no violation of rules by the MLAs, and they had not "betrayed the party, and not left the party". He said he will go to any extent to protect the party. They later shifted to a resort in Coorg in Karnataka and are since staying there.
RB Udaykumar, Tamil Nadu Minister, who read the resolution at the council meeting said all announcements of TTV Dinakaran are not binding on the party.
On Tuesday, the united groups of Palaniswami and O Paneerselvam took control of the organisation by removing the party's official chief V Sasikala from all posts and declaring as "null and void" all decisions taken by her nephew Dinakaran, the number two person. As for the demand of the opposition parties for a floor test, "We have already shown majority in floor test [in February this year]", he maintained.
Speaking to reporters here, Mr. Jayaraman referring to Cumbum MLA S.T.K. Jakkaiyan (who switched over to the camp headed by Chief Minister Palaniswami) said other MLAs, who presently owe allegiance to sidelined leader T.T.V. Dhinakaran too would follow suit.
According to ANI, the camp led by Dhinakaran argued before the poll watchdog that the recent AIADMK General Council meet where VK Sasikala was ousted shouldn't be considered legal.
