NEW DELHI: Tamil Nadu Governor Vidyasagar Rao on Monday met President Ram Nath Kovind and Finance Minister Arun Jaitley amid a lingering political crisis in the state.

Rao, who has been urged by opposition parties and dissident AIADMK MLAs to immediately convene the assembly to enable a floor test, is yet to take a decision on when to ask Chief Minister E. Palaniswami to face a trial of strength.

Rao's visit to Delhi came as Speaker P. Dhanapal disqualified 18 MLAs owing allegiance to rebel AIADMK leader T.T.V. Dinakaran, giving an edge to the ruling side in the numbers game in the assembly.
