Chennai: Tamil Nadu former Cheif Minister Mr. O Panneerselvam today say to media reporters “Our decision, which will be taken soon, will be reflective of the expectations of the people and the AIADMK supporters”

Mr. Panneerselvam’s comments, which came in response to the virtual coup against AIADMK (Amma) Deputy General Secretary TTV Dinakaran by Chief Minister Edappadi Palaniswami, are seen as an apparent hint at the merger of the two factions, led by him and the Tamil Nadu Cheif Minister Edapadi K Palaniswami.

Media will be Informed First

Asked about the merger talks, he shot back at reporters saying “you will be informed first.”

Opening the doors for a possible merger of the two AIADMK factions, the Palaniswami-led Amma faction had earlier in the day challenged the authority of Dinakaran, a move hailed by the rebel camp as an “awakening”.

The senior leader in the Amma camp, Finance Minister D Jayakumar had also expressed hope of the unification event happening by August 15.

“We are confident. Hope so,” was Jayakumar’s brief response when media persons sought his reaction on reports that the merger could happen by August 15.
