CHENNAI, APRIL 20TH
After Wednesday’s meeting two factions of the AIADMK are now close to finalising a deal towards a merger.
AIADMK leader and Lok Sabha Deputy Speaker M. Thambi Durai called on Tamil Nadu Governor Ch. Vidyasagar Rao in the Raj Bhavan. "It was just a courtesy visit, no politics was discussed," he said.
A meeting of all the MLAs and MPs supporting former Chief Minister O. Panneerselvam will be held at his residence on Thursday morning to discuss the developments and work out a strategy for the talks with the other faction led by Chief Minister Edappadi Palanisami.
