"I am mature", Dhinakaran ready to leave AIADMK, blames BJP for opposition

AIADMK (Puratchi Thalaivi Amma) is the name given to the faction of the party led by Panneerselvam while the other goes by the name AIADMK (Amma). "We wanted the doubts to be cleared on Jayalalithaa's death", he said reiterating that they began this dharma yudh with two conditions - a judicial probe into Amma's death and removing Sasikala's family. As reported by The News Minute on Wednesday, the OPS faction remained guarded despite their initial claims of a "first victory" following Dhinakaran's announcement that he would keep away from the party affairs.

The AIADMK split into two after Jayalalithaa's death.

According to Panneerselvam, the war for justice would continue "till the main goal is achieved". This has made it hard for the AIADMK to provide a stable government in the state. The ministers, divided in two camps, held meetings at the residents of Thangamani and Udumalai Radhakrishna.

The revolt followed Sasikala's attempt to grab power after Chief Minister J Jayalalithaa's passing, by assuming the post of interim general secretary, a post that has not been provided for in the party constitution. "The decision taken by ministers now to set aside Sasikala's family was suggested by us before months, it is a late but wise decision".

A day after some AIADMK ministers initiated unity talks with the Panneerselvam faction, the former Chief Minister made it clear that there can not be any unification if Sasikala and her family members remained party members. Dinakaran and some other AIADMK politicians had hinted that the saffron party might have been behind Sasikala and her nephew's ouster from the party.

The OPS team now claim that Dinakaran may have been ousted but Sasikala, her husband Natarajan and brother Dinakaran are the ones calling the shots.

Before going to prison, Sasikala had throned her nephew TTV Dhinakaran as the party's General Secretary. OPS alleged that money was paid to the voters for the RK Nagar bypolls.

Paneerselvam's hard stand came as a rude shock for the ruling faction's ministers and MLAs, who were on board INS Chennai, the warship dedicated to the city, on Tuesday morning.

He also said as everybody made a decision to keep him out of the party affairs, he has chose to stay out.

In an indication that patch-up could be a herculean task, he said only Panneerselvam had the support of people and cadres and the rival camp was "afraid" that the majority of MLAs only favoured Panneerselvam for the Chief Minister's post. Subsequently, Panneerselvam was shown the door by party top brass.
