Madurai: Soon after the ruling faction under chief minister Edappadi K. Palaniswami ousted party general secretary V.K. Sasikala and her family members, TTV Dhinakaran launched a full-scale attack vowing to dislodge the Edappadi K. Palaniswami government. Dhinakaran also rejected the resolutions passed at the “General Council meet,” saying that they were subject to the ruling of the Madras high court.

Speaking to reporters in Madurai, he said that they would wait for a few more days for Tamil Nadu governor Vidyasagar Rao to take appropriate action on his representation to conduct a confidence vote in the state legislature. “If the governor doesn’t take any action in a few days, we will initiate appropriate action,” he said.

The reluctance of the governor to take action despite his knowledge that the present government had lost its majority would only lead to people losing faith in his post, Dhinakaran said. He also made a scathing attack on the chief minister Edappadi K. Palaniswami and deputy CM  Panneerselvam.
