CHENNAI: Coming under pressure after being sidelined deputy general secretary of the AIADMK (Amma) TTV Dhinakaran managed to parade about 15 MLAs and four MPs in Madurai, Finance Minister D Jayakumar launched a counter attack, warning the dissenters that their activities against the unification of the factions and the continuation of the State government would not be forgiven by the cadre and the people.

“If Dhinakaran and supporters think the party should not unite, they will not be forgiven by people who chose the party to lead them,” Jayakumar said. When principal opposition DMK, threatened to move another no-confidence motion, Dhinakaran said his faction might support it instead of stating that feud was an internal affair of the party, he pointed out. “This is a betrayal that will not be forgiven.”

Terming Dhinakaran’s criticisms that the two factions were not concerned about the party as amusing, Jayakumar said the comments revealed that Dhinakaran, who had earned benefits from the party, was not a seasoned politician.

Jayakumar reiterated that Dhinakaran and the whole family would not be allowed to interfere in the affairs of the party and government, adding that they were not invited to any of the functions.
