HC stays TN floor test till Wednesday on rebels' disqualification fear

The Madras High Court today ordered that no floor test will be conducted in Tamil Nadu Assembly till September 20.

The court was hearing a petition from the Opposition DMK seeking directions for Governor Vidyasagar Rao to take immediate steps to conduct a floor test.

While passing orders, Justice M Duraisamy had observed that the court does not wish to interfere with the privileges of the Speaker and that it its the Speaker's discretion to disqualify the MLAs or not.

The legislator further said that though Speaker P Dhanapal had given them an opportunity to meet him, it was not possible to do so at this juncture and hence, all the 18 legislators have sought five more days to meet him.

Of the 234 members of the Legislative Assembly, the present government enjoys the support of only 113, excluding the Speaker, against the minimum requirement of 117 MLAs.

The AIADMK, in its general council meeting, passed a resolution, according to which jailed party general secretary V K Sasikala stands expelled from the party and the post of the temporary general secretary forfeited.

An AIADMK MLA on Thursday told reporters that the TTV Dhinakaran faction has chose to meet the President soon over a wide range of issues.

Mr. Stalin could not even become the president of his own party and was still the working president, Mr. Jayaraman said and added: "His dream to become the Chief Minister would not come true". Senior ministers say that the hidden agenda of TTV-DMK combine would not succeed and the government would embark on a mission to gain strength by way of numbers.

The TTV Dhinakaran faction also met the officials from the Election Commission (EC) and requested them to declare the recently-conducted general council meeting of the party null and void. He assured that his faction would never go with their political enemy DMK. "You (EPS-OPS) claim you have the support of party workers, so if you have the guts, let us face fresh elections", he said.

"The Governor delayed (on directing floor test), but DMK won't keep quiet". K P Munusamy, a voracious critic of Sasikala clan, said Dhinakaran was all out to take revenge and was looking for parties like DMK to team up with.

Dhinakaran also slammed Palanisamy for "aligning" with former rebel leader O Panneerselvam, now Deputy Chief Minister.
