Will work to bring down Palaniswami government: Dinakaran

Chennai, Sept 12: Sidelined AIADMK leader T.T.V. Dinakaran, who is leading 21 party legislators, on Tuesday said he would work towards bringing down the K. Palaniswami government. “You (Chief Minister Palaniswami) and others have no moral right to sit in positions of power that was once wielded by Jayalalithaa. We will send this government home,” Dinakaran told a press conference here.
He was reacting shortly after the merged AIADMK factions adopted a resolution revoking the appointment of his aunt V.K. Sasikala as AIADMK General Secretary and his appointment as Deputy General Secretary at the party’s General Council meeting held here. He said even when around 500 members of the General Council want a meeting of the council, it is the General Secretary who has to call the meeting.
Dinakaran said the Madras High Court on Monday has said the decisions of the meeting are subject to its final judgement in a case filed against the holding of the meeting. Dinakaran said it was Deputy Chief Minister O. Panneerselvam who broke away from the party and was instrumental in the Election Commission freezing the party’s ‘two leaves’ symbol.
Dinakaran said: “DMK is our main challenger and we’ll fight against them, and win the elections. The ruling faction is spreading falsehood that we are in alignment with DMK.” (IANS)
