Tamil Nadu fisheries minister D Jayakumar on Tuesday said that the ruling party AIADMK has decided to dissociate VK Sasikala and TTV Dhinakaran from the party.
Around 20 Cabinet Ministers who met at Tamil Nadu CM E Palaniswami’s residence have decided to keep the Sasikala family away from the government and the party.
“Our aim is to keep the party together. The cadres don’t want TTV Dhinakaran to lead the party. To put it bluntly, Sasikala and her family cannot lead the party,” Jayakumar said.
According to the faction, 122 MLAs want O Panneerselvam as the Tamil Nadu chief minister.
AIADMK spokesperson Ponnaiyan said that Sasikala is not the General Secretary of the party. “Her election was illegal. We do not consider her the General Secretary,” he said.
The latest revolt in the party is hinting the end of Mannargudi clan’s influence in the party.
More details are awaited.
