He, however, parried queries on the developments in the southern state.

The minister was asked what steps the Centre was taking to bring stability in the state and the directions issued to Governor Vidyasagar Rao. To this, he said he does not give directions to the governor.

Tamil Nadu has been in the grip of a political crisis since late Jayalalithaa’s close aide V K Sasikala was elected AIADMK’s legislature party leader, a move which was aimed at making her the state chief minister, leading to Interim Chief Minister O Panneerselvam raising a banner of revolt against her.

    It's heartening to see the Tamilnadu politics where the centre and the state's opposition is trying to fish in the troubled waters. This is really shame for our nation where the politicians are still following the same old tradition. Immaterial of where they are whether they are in ruling or in opposition..It's a general logic that a party who has the majority rules the nation or state. If they have any administrative issues they solve it with their own majority or approach the centre through its governor for istance because of our federal system.Here the Governor is acting extraordinary and allowing a party to break and encouraging the horse trading for the reason best known to him and his boss.This kind of action by a consutional authority is not healthy to the state which depends on him for the reason as explained earlier.Every political party in this world knows very well, how difficult it is to build and sustain their party to be in a majority when it comes to rule. Let's pray for the people of the state to stay calm and wait for their better days.
