Chennai sources stated that Amma Makkal Munnetra Kazhagam (AMMK) leader T T V Dhinakaran on Friday claimed that Tamilnadu Deputy Chief Minister O Panneerselvam wanted to meet him in September in a bid to "oust" Chief Minister K Palanisamy. Meanwhile the ousted AIADMK leader claimed that Panneerselvam had met him in July last year and again wanted to meet him in September end this year, and he had sent in word through a common friend for this purpose.
Furthermore Dhinakaran said that he had, however, refused to attend the meeting and claimed that Panneerselvam had sent in a word that he was ready to "oust" Palanisamy and promote the AMMK leader to a 'significant' post. Dhinakaran told reporters a day after his close aide Thanga Tamilselvan had made similar remarks during a TV debate "Panneerselvam wanted to meet him to oust the chief minister”.
Accordingly Dhinakaran said he was revealing the
information now since Panneerselvam was being critical of him in public fora,
even while making efforts to mend fences. Moreover he also claimed that
Panneerselvam's "only interest is to become the chief minister." Further
the ruling AIADMK dismissed Dhinakaran's claims, saying he was trying to
"fish in troubled waters." Dhinakaran has been since critical of the
Palanisamy government and has repeatedly vowed to oust it.
