Hearing begins in Madras High Court on AIADMK MLA disqualification case

Chennai, Sep 20:-- The hearing on the AIADMK MLA disqualification case in the Madras High Court began on Wednesday morning, media reports said.


The 18 disqualified MLAs from Dinakaran's camp of the AIADMK moved the High Court on Tuesday and the court agreed to hear their plea.


If the court quashes the disqualification and the floor test takes place in the TN assembly, the Palaniswamy government could certainly fall short of the majority without the support of the 18 AIADMK MLAs, according to reports.


Tamil Nadu speaker, P. Dhanapal, on Monday disqualified 18 AIADMK MLAs from TTV Dinakaran's camp.




The disqualification came after the OPS-EPS camps sacked VK Sasikala as the general secretary of the AIADMK and sidelined Dinakaran in the party.


Dinakaran, who had demanded a floor test in the Assembly, claimed that the government will reduce to a minority without the support of his loyalists.


The EPS-OPS camps, a week ago, passed a resolution to quash all appointees after the death of former Tamil Nadu CM J Jayalalitha and also dismissed decisions taken by Dinakaran in the party.


The power struggle in the party began after Jayalalitha's death as VK Sasikala, who is presently in jail for an assets disproportionate case, tried to become the state's CM.
