Chennai, Sept 7 (BPNS)

AIADMK leader and former Chief Minister of Tamil Nadu, Edappadi K. Palaniswami said that ten DMK MLA’s were in touch with his camp to switch sides to the AIADMK. He however refuted rumours that AIADMK legislators were not switching sides to the DMK.

He accused DMK as a family-run political party and said that it was functioning like a corporate company and said that there was no respect in that party for the cadres and leaders. The AIADMK leader said that while Udayanidhi Stalin was just an MLA, he was being invited for all inaugurations while a mayor is not given adequate respect.

Referring to the CB-CID team reaching AIADMK headquarters on Wednesday to conduct investigation on the July 11 clashes, EPS said that the law and order situation in Tamil Nadu has touched its lowest ebb and that the CB-CID reached party headquarters only after he had approached the court for the same.

It may be noted that the CB-CID sleuths were investigating the AIADMK headquarters on Wednesday after the AIADMK cadres owing allegiance to OPS and EPS had clashed there on July 11.

EPS also ruled out any possibility of V.K. Sasikala and her nephew TTV Dhinakaran coming back to the party fold. He said that AIADMK cadres do not want Sasikala and Dhinakaran back in the party fold.
