CHENNAI: Amid moves of a merger and sabre-rattling within the AIADMK warring groups, the principal opposition DMK on Friday dropped a bomb saying it may move a no-trust motion against the Edappadi K Palaniswami-led government in Tamil Nadu.

Talking to reporters after a meeting of district secretaries, DMK working president MK Stalin said, "We will bring in a no-confidence motion against the government if necessary."

The statement of Stalin, who is also Leader of Opposition, assumes significance as TTV Dhinakaran supporters issued a warning to the AIADMK official faction led by chief minister Edappadi Palaniswami that they would not hesitate to pull the strings to destabilise the govt.

Stalin also wished that the current volatile situation disappeared soon and stability returned to the benefit of the people of Tamil Nadu.

"An extraordinary situation began to set in ever since AIADMK split into EPS, OPS and TTV factions. This situation should vanish and stability return to the advantage of the public," he said replying to a question.
