Will not hurt prospects of K Palaniswami government: O Panneerselvam

Amid the changing power equations in the ruling AIADMK's Amma faction, the rebel Puratchi Thalaivi Amma group today said it will not hurt the prospects of the K Palaniswami government in Tamil Nadu.

AIADMK's Amma faction, Puratchi Thalaivi Amma group, K Palaniswami, O Panneerselvam, AIADMK, Palaniswami government,  Congress, IUML, Opposition DMKO Panneerselvam and his supporting MLAs had voted against the Palaniswami government in a trust vote moved by DMK on February 18.(PTI)

Amid the changing power equations in the ruling AIADMK’s Amma faction, the rebel Puratchi Thalaivi Amma group today said it will not hurt the prospects of the K Palaniswami government in Tamil Nadu. “The Palaniswami-led government will not face a situation where it will lose (power) because of us,” Puratchi Thalaivi Amma leader O Panneerselvam said, in what could come as a relief for the beleaguered chief minister. Panneerselvam’s comments come in the midst of MLAs in the Amma faction flocking towards party deputy general Secretary T T V Dhinakaran, who is trying to re-assert his position after being released on bail in a bribery case despite facing a revolt by the Palaniswami camp. A top aide of Dhinakaran had claimed that so far 25 MLAs have met him since he came out on bail on June 3 in a case related to alleged attempt to bribe some Election Commission officials to get back the party’s ‘Two-Leaves’ symbol. The AIADMK (Amma) faction has 122 MLAs in the 234-member assembly.

Also watch:

Incidentally, Panneerselvam and his supporting MLAs had voted against the Palaniswami government in a trust vote moved by DMK on February 18, days after the former had revolted against AIADMK chief V K Sasikala, alleging he was forced to make way for her elevation as chief minister. Palaniswami had, however, won the trust vote by a margin of 122-11, with Opposition DMK being evicted following unruly scenes and its allies, Congress and IUML, staging a walkout.
