Lookout Notice Against AIADMK Leader Dinakaran

Dinakaran earlier said that as everyone had made a decision to keep him out of party affairs, he had chose to stay out.

2 pm IST: Dinakaran now takes to Twitter to repeat what he had said earlier. But then, there are some 10 MLAs supporting Dinakaran with whom he can easily topple the government. "We will continue our demand for a CBI inquiry into the sudden demise of Jayalalithaa".

Around 13 ministers of Tamil Nadu made a decision to hold a marathon meeting, continuing the thread of discussion regarding a merger of EPS and OPS. They are protesting in Delhi. "I will discuss the issue with her".

The demand for the duo's ouster had come from former chief minister O Panneerselvam, who had earlier been unseated from the chief ministership by Sasikala.

How will numbers and posts play out between the two factions?

Two leaders in the AIADMK (PTA) that The Hindu spoke to said it was important to see through the promise of Sasikala and Dhinakaran's exit.

It's now a best-of-three, and if there's any such thing as momentum in a playoff series, it's all in the Sharks' corner. After not scoring in either of the last two games, it only took the Sharks 15 seconds to dent the twine in this one.

However, Sattur MLA S G Subramanian, told reporters that Dhinakaran was their leader and the party deputy general secretary.

"I was asked to stay away from party affairs and I will listen to that for the sake of the party". When those ministers who vehemently supported Sasikala and TTV Dinakaran are now vociferously speaking against them, plainly signify that the political drama is being scripted elsewhere. Instead of sailing or sinking with Dinakaran, the Edappadi camp chose to desert him to save the government and the party. "How does a broker or somebody say the money was from TTV Dhinakaran?". They have betrayed her. Betrayers have to go, ' Panneerselvam added. "It is purely their internal matter". It was decided that Sasikala and her family will be delinked from the party and the government. He has also accused the BJP of trying to create rift within the AIADMK. He held discussions with AIADMK (Amma) deputy general secretary Dhinakaran at the latter's residence in Chennai.

Panneerselvam said, "The war for justice is to retrieve the party from the clutches of that family."Both factions would now hold talks for a merger".

8 am IST: The TN unit of the BJP weighs in on the issue.

Dhinakaran, also facing Delhi Police heat in an alleged bribery case, called a meeting of the party MLAs and district secretaries for later on Wednesday.

In March, the AIADMK faction led by Panneerselvam met Chief Election Commissioner Nasim Zaidi to stake claim to the party symbol of "two leaves" for the RK Nagar seat by-election.
