AIADMK Camps Talk Merger

Chennai: APRIL 18TH  A political row in Tamil Nadu that began with the death of Chief Minister J Jayalalithaa in December seems as if it is going to be settled .  Two rival factions of the AIADMK are talking terms and conditions of a possible reunion.  

 When Ms Jayalalithaa died as Chief Minister, her live-in aide, Ms Sasikala quickly appropriated control of the AIADMK, a manoeuvre that appeared to have the backing of all party leaders. The problem began after that - when she tried to become Chief Minister. O Panneerselvam, called OPS by supporters, who was head of the government, refused to quit. Ms Sasikala's political plans took a big hit when the Supreme Court in February sentenced her to jail for corruption.

 Ms Sasikala then installed E Palaniswamy as Chief Minister. Before heading to jail, she made Mr Dinakaran, her nephew, the party No 2. She kept the rank of party chief for herself.
