AIADMK dilemma: To save or jettison Dhinakaran

The petition comes a day after a resolution was passed by the chief minister Edappadi K Palaniswami-led camp, nullifying the appointment of Dhinakaran as deputy general secretary and indicating that his aunt Sasikala's appointment as general secretary was only a temporary arrangement.

Stalled negotiations on the merger of two AIADMK factions picked up again on Thursday after a meeting presided over by Palaniswami questioned the appointment of TTV Dinakaran as AIADMK's deputy general secretary.

Speaking to reporters finance minister D. Jayakumar hoped that the present move will soon lead to the merger, since OPS had made the total sidelining of the Sasikala family as a precondition for merger.

Though Sasikala was later convicted in his disproportionate assets case, her fielded member E Palaniswami became the CM of the state.

According to sources, the two factions of the ruling AIADMK party have given their nods to a possible merger between the two.

Insiders within the state BJP unit claim that he has given an ultimatum to EPS and OPS factions to announce the merger within August 15, and hold a grand rally when Shah will visit the state in the end of the month. "For sure, all steps will be taken for party growth". Dinakaran had visited Sasikala in jail and seemed to have been resolved to taking control of the party.

Rejecting the resolution adopted against him, Dinakaran warned of "surgical action" against Palanisami and others if the situation warrants. Sasikala and her family have intricately hard-wired themselves to the party-DNA over the last several years under the patronage of Jayalalithaa. That would mean Palanisami manages the government while the party is controlled by OPS.

"Officially, EPS has 123 MLAs, just five more than the minimum number 118". Political observers believe that instance made one more thing clear - the power that Naidu wields and his future role in Tamil Nadu politics, until he became the vice-president of the country. "But how long will they survive?"

Amid speculation that merger talks with the rebel O Panneerselvam camp has reached final stages, the Amma faction of the AIADMK met at the party headquarters in Chennai. Probably, the BJP wouldn't mind the government falling and going to fresh elections although the risks are very high because the present government is highly unpopular.
