CHENNAI: Amid a patch-up bid in the AIADMK, the  DMK on Friday threatened to move a no-confidence motion against the six-month-old government led by Edappadi K Palaniswami.
“We will move a (no-confidence motion) if necessary,” DMK working president M K Stalin told reporters in response to a question. He added that Tamil Nadu has been witnessing an extraordinary situation because   of factionalism in the AIADMK.

“They sense the emergence of an extraordinary situation only now, but such a situation has been prevailing ever since the AIADMK split into EPS, OPS and TTV factions,” he said.
The Palaniswami government won the confidence vote on February 18 under tumultuous conditions and violence unleashed by the DMK members in the Assembly. Though Stalin had stated his party might move a no-trust motion while talking to media persons, he did not touch upon the issue at the emergency district secretaries meet which he chaired, sources said.

Murasoli event washed out
Meanwhile, a public meeting organised at the grounds of YMCA at Nandanam here as part of the platinum jubilee celebrations of the DMK mouthpiece Murasoli was washed out in showers. A brief spell of torrential rains tested Nandanam barely minutes after the meeting began.

Presiding over the event, senior leader Durai Murugan recalled that skies opened up on the day when DMK was launched as well. Amid showers, veteran Communist leader R Nallakannu released a souvenir as the first manager of Murasoli C D Dakshinamoorthy received the first copy.
Several political leaders, including K Veeramani (DK) K M Kader Mohideen (IUML), R Mutharasan (CPI), Thol. Thirumavalavan (VCK) and T K Rangarajan (CPM) were present at the event.
