CHENNAI: AIADMK deputy general secretary T T V Dinkaran has renewed his appeal to legislators in former Chief Minister O Pannerselvam’s camp to return to the parent organisation.
“Many MLAs who went away trusting Pannerselvam’s false promises were left in the lurch now and this is the last opportunity to return, failing which the late Chief Minister J Jayalalithaa’s ‘aathma/soul’ will never forgive them,” he said while addressing a party meeting at Mylapore on Thursday evening.
Dinakaran made a scathing attack on Pannerselvam by calling him as opposition DMK’s ‘B team’. By spreading rumours on Jayalalithaa’s death he was scripting his own downfall, he said. Hours after the Election Commission announced that by-election in RK Nagar constituency will be held on April 12, Dinakaran in his 40-minute speech stressed that DMK working president M K Stalin and OPS wanted to trounce AIADMK.
He reiterated that party general secretary VK Sasikala had no political ambitions. Recalling the recent trust vote in Assembly, Dinakaran said in a statement that Pannerselvam was ‘a false puritan oscillating in DMK’s puppetry show’.
