Sasikala, Dinakaran ouster first victory: Panneerselvam”

Law Minister C V Shanmugam said since party's Deputy Chief Dhinakaran was away in Bengaluru, the matter will be discussed with him after he returns to the city and a decision would be taken. "Only you (Palaniswami camp) know the reason, (for sidelining Dhinakaran.) We are getting information that since he (Dhinakaran) was entangled in several cases, in order to free him, Sasikala's family has used them (Palaniswami camp)", he claimed.

"He is the Chancellor of the Fisheries University and by the virtue of being a fisheries minister I am the Pro-Chancellor".

Weeks after Jayalalithaa's death, her long-time companion Sasikala took control of the party and attempted to become the chief minister too. However, KA Sengottaiyan had said earlier that OPS faction didn't raise any question on Dinakaran or Sasikala.

"If this is done, we will consider it as first victory to our faction", former state minister and AIADMK member K. P. Munusamy told the media here.

We are ready to hold talks with OPS faction on merger", said R Vaithilingam, senior leader of EPS camp, adding, "Let's all work together to retrieve the Two-Leaf symbol.

Sasikala cited the same reason that dual authority would lead to friction and used it as a reason to ease out Panneerselvam as CM.

While Sengottaiyan's individual stand still remains a mystery, MLAs like Vetrivel said the party can not oust TTV Dinakaran and Sasikala.

Trouble started following Sasikala and her nephew TTV Dinakaran some five years ago, and it hasn't left them alone since.

On board "INS Chennai", Finance Minister Jayakumar refused to attach any significance to an MLAs meeting.

Despite managing to get a majority of MLAs and MPs to rally behind her, Sasikala failed in her attempt following her conviction by the Supreme Court in the assets case. Till a few days ago, chief minister Edappadi K Palanisami and other ministers had been praising VK Sasikala and TTV Dhinakaran.

Speaking to reporters in Chennai, Panneerselvam played the "Amma" card and said it was important that members of the Mannargudi family be evicted if the AIADMK has to survive. He said the Centre should support the efforts of I-T and ED officials in bringing to light corruption involving AIADMK ministers.

Jayakumar's clarification came after he met with Governor Ch Vidyasagar Rao at the Raj Bhavan. Dinakaran was also named as an accused in the FIR filed by the Delhi Police Crime Branch for allegedly offering bribe for his party's "two leaves" symbol.
