Does merger help improve TN scenario?

Thursday, September 14, 2017

THE two sections of the AIADMK in Tamil Nadu — OPS and EPS — have finally decided to merge and form the government. They know that Sasikala with only 20 MLAs left in her group is still a force to reckon with. She is in jail now but O. Panneerselvam and E. Palaniswamy know she is still a force to be reckoned with. They have sacked Sasikala as the general secretary of the party and Dinakaran as the deputy secretary. Dinakaran says this has not been done legally.

The merged party has now joined NDA at the Centre and gets support from the BJP's prime minister himself.

Both OPS and EPS claim that they are heirs of Amma Jayalalithaa and Sasikala is not. They keep pictures of Amma in their offices. The truth is Sasikala is the real heir of Jayalalithaa, with whom she was living together for 30 years. There was  a bond between the two and Jayalalithaa had left TN power to Sasikala.

And the big question arises whether there will be peace between the two merged parties. O. Panneerselvam has agreed that the chief minister be E. Palaniswamy, but it will not be a surprise if he makes a claim for the post soon. And it is said that the two parties in power now have no right to remove the general secretary and deputy secretary from power. It is clear that the political and power scenario in Tamil Nadu will continue to be full of fights and controversies.
