No Trust Vote till Sep 20 : Madras HC

Kamal’s post on Twitter

The court was hearing a plea by ousted All India Anna Dravida Munnetra Kazhagam leader TTV Dinakaran's faction, news agency ANI reported.

To this, the Court asked what action was being taken against the MLAs as the notice period, seeking explanation from them, ended today.

The Madras High Court on Thursday restrained the Speaker of Tamil Nadu Legislative Assembly from holding any floor test till September 20.

Chennai: Asserting that DMK was his prime enemy, sidelined AIADMK leader T T V Dhinakaran said that "his party" would not align with M K Stalin's DMK now or in the future. By doing so, Palanisamy may not require to garner the required support of 117 MLAs to win the trust vote, he said. It amended the party rules whereby none will be elected or nominated to the post of general secretary - a position held by party supremo and late chief minister J Jayalalithaa till her death.

Another Dhinakaran loyalist, Thanga Tamilselvan who is now staying at a resort in Karnataka told reporters there that "as a next step we are waiting to meet President and appeal to him". K P Munusamy, a voracious critic of Sasikala clan, said Dhinakaran was all out to take revenge and was looking for parties like DMK to team up with.

'Kohli better than Smith in limited overs'
After making the final of the Champions Trophy, they recorded series wins in the West Indies and Sri Lanka . Kohli had once said that Chahal doesn't fear bowling during any stage of an innings.

"His faction had moved the court against a possible disqualification of its MLAs after "sensing" such possible action", from Speaker P Dhanapal, he said.

A group of MPs and MLAs owing allegiance to the Dinakaran faction told the Chief Election Commissioner and Election Commissioners that according to the AIADMK by-laws, a general council meeting can be convened only by the general secretary or a person authorised by the top office-bearer.

The TTV Dhinakaran faction also met the officials from the Election Commission (EC) and requested them to declare the recently-conducted general council meeting of the party null and void.

The DMK in its petition had argued that with the decision of the 19 rebel AIADMK MLAs to withdraw support to Palaniswamy, the Government headed by the latter has become a minority Government.

The resolution further said that the Tamil Nadu Chief Minister, E. Palanisamy and his deputy, O. Panneerselvam, shall retrieve the party and its symbol. As for the demand of the opposition parties for a floor test, "We have already shown majority in floor test [in February this year]", he maintained.
