TN Opposition to petition Kovind, seek confidence vote on State govt

Amid demands of a floor test for the K Palaniswami government following rebellion by 21 AIADMK MLAs, VCK leader Thol Thirumavalavan today claimed that the Tamil Nadu Governor Ch Vidyasagar Rao had told a delegation that he can not intervene in party matters.

"He explained that the 19 dissenting MLAs were still in the AIADMK and hence, he did not think the Chief Minister had lost his majority", said VCK president Thol Thirumavalavan, who, met the Governor on Wednesday morning to submit a memorandum urging him to direct Palaniswami to prove his majority in the House. Leaders of opposition parties led by DMK made a representation to the Rashtrapati Bhavan over the political crisis in the state. The meeting discussed the issue of 19 (allegedly 22) legislators giving a letter to Governor C.Vidyasagar Rao withdrawing their support to Chief Minister Palanisamy and wanting a new Chief Minister. But they continue to support the AIADMK government.

The group met Chief Whip S Rajendran to submit their explanations for meeting the Governor last week. While cross-overs from the ruling faction have stopped, there is uncertainty over the command of the ruling faction over the MLAs with Dhinakaran faction demanding that Speaker P Dhanapal be made the chief minister. A leader added that Thambidurai may have, on behalf of the chief minister, discussed probable names for the post of Tamil Nadu governor.

Dhinakaran faction's petition came even as a high-powered delegation from AIADMK led by finance minister D. Jayakumar was camping in the national capital to meet the Chief Election Commissioner and formally inform him about the merger of the two factions. They have called for a meeting of the general council on September 12. Sounding another warning, AIADMK interim general secretary V K Sasikala's brother and influential backroom operator V K Dhivakaran announced that Dhinakaran would soon convene the general council of the party, thus foretelling a possibility of parallel meetings as happened in 1996 when the party faced a split.

Meanwhile, the Governor has drawn flak from opposition parties and the AIADMK's Dhinakaran faction for not taking action in line with their demands.

"Governor Rao told us that under the present circumstances he can not intervene and the law does not give room for it", he told reporters after meeting the governor here.
