"They are saying something outside and have stated something different in the affidavit furnished with the EC", Dinakaran said, adding that such attitude was similar to "cheating" and both his and Sasikala's appointment and all office-bearers they had brought in were valid and as per the AIADMK's laws.

Prime Minister Narendra Modi's word to the warring AIADMK leaders to effect a patch-up has apparently spurred them to revive efforts to merge their factions.

Curiously, Dinakaran then beat a strategic retreat and said that he "won't be the reason to weaken the party" and that he was not against the merger of the EPS and OPS factions.

Dinakaran supporter Thangathamizhchelvan, a MLA, said nobody had the right to remove Sasikala and Dinakaran from the party.

Panneerselvam, the head of the rival faction, is also in Delhi.

However, the state soon witnessed a series of events leading to EPS's ascension to the CM chair as party general secretary VK Sasikala, who was seen as the natural heir of Jayalalithaa and was waiting to be the CM, ended up in jail following her conviction in the disproportionate assets case.

The BJP's interest is to ensure that a unified AIADMK backs the NDA government on crucial issues in Parliament while allowing the saffron party to organise itself in Tamil Nadu. Finally, OPS was named the CM and the oath-taking ceremony was held without any delay. Also, the BJP is not keen on early assembly poll as its unit is hardly in a position to gain electorally, party officials say. However, Tamilisai Soundararajan, BJP's State unit president, said it [the party] was not exerting any pressure on both the factions to come together."It is an internal matter of another party", Dr. Once that happens, Edappadi government can get the support of seven MLAs.

The meeting was chaired by Palaniswami, in which 27 members, including Ministers, MPs and leaders of various wings of the Party, participated and made a decision to shut the doors on Dinakaran and his aunt and Party General Secretary V.K. Sasikala. In fact, in April itself some of the ministers had "ousted" Dinakaran and his family from the party, but there was no follow up action to formalize the decision.
