Both factions of AIADMK merge again

Both factions of AIADMK merge again”

The merger came about after Panneerselvam met Prime Minister Narendra Modi last week who is said to have told him to soften his stand and agree to merge with the rival EPS faction.

The much awaited coming together of the two factions was announced at a function at the AIADMK headquarters where Chief Minister K. Palaniswami disclosed the changes within the party.

Aug 10: Prospects of merger brighten as the Amma faction says Dhinakaran's appointment as deputy general secretary was against party rules.

May 6: AIADMK (Amma) describes as "opportunism" Panneerselvam camp's demand for a CBI probe into Jayalalithaa's death as a pre-condition for merger talks. "We will fulfil all the promises made by Amma".

As is normal for entry to stadiums in Spain, backpacks will be searched whilst large bags and suitcases are banned. The Catalonians swept Real Betis aside with a 2-0 victory, with both goals coming in the first half.

Panneerselvam thanked Chief Minister Palanisamy and leaders of his faction. Though it is being said that VK Sasikala would be ousted from the party, there is no clarity about when Sasikala would be expelled.

Dec 29: Sasikala is appointed the general secretary of AIADMK after the party's general council unanimously passes a resolution.

As per AIADMK constitution, the party general secretary is elected directly by the primary members. Earlier in the day, rival AIADMK factions led by Palaniswami and Panneerselvam merged, ending a almost seven- month feud.

On Saturday, August 19, OPS said that the talks for the merger were on as it was a desire of the people of Tamil Nadu. The AIADMK's party symbol and name lies frozen with the Election Commission (EC).

Numerous filmmakers have been waiting for him to rope in their movies especially to make his Bollywood debut. Moreover, his upcoming Saaho is also a costly budget film, which is being made at around Rs.150 crore.

While Panneerselvam later tweeted that a huge burden was off his chest, the uneasiness among the AIADMK leaders was palpable when the merger announcement was made. However, it appears that this demand has been dismissed and Panneerselvam might have to settle for the deputy chief minister's post.

Party sources say a steering or advisory committee will be formed with representation from the two merging factions to overcome this hurdle.

The BJP was endeavouring to bring both the factions of AIDMK for a long time.

M.K. Stalin, leader of opposition and DMK's working president criticized both OPS and EPS, calling them the "best actors".
