The AMMK’s aim is to prevent the AIADMK and DMK from forming a government in the State, party general secretary TTV Dhinakaran said on Wednesday.
It is not possible to grant prayer to submit final report on the investigation without registration of FIR, the court observed.
However, a counsel who appeared on behalf of VK Sasikala did not file a petition and told the court that they will file a counter after getting instructions from the client
A couple of hours after Rajavarman joined the AMMK, Chief Minister Edappadi K Palaniswami and Deputy Chief Minister O Panneerselvam expelled him for anti-party activities
Sasikala, who was expelled from the AIADMK in 2011 by Jayalalithaa and reinstated within 100 days, appears to be buying time till the election verdict is out.
She had challenged the decisions taken in AIADMK’s general council meeting that was held in September 2017 and the next hearing of the case was posted to March 15.
Sasikala’s decision has been widely welcomed by all parties, while analysts read it as a major win for the ruling AIADMK; her letter urges Jayalalithaa loyalists to defeat evil forces
The decision comes as a boost for the ruling party, and is likely to give impetus to seat-sharing talks with its allies

Dhinakaran said Sasikala's decision came as a shock to him and his efforts to persuade her out of this decision failed.
The perceived ‘interference’ of the BJP in the affairs of the AIADMK has irked the functionaries of the ruling party.
There is speculation about a separate political front headed by Sasikala. The scenario is likely to become clear once the seat-sharing talks in the AIADMK-led alliance come to an end.
Legal steps are being taken to facilitate VK Sasikala contest in the upcoming Assembly elections, AMMK general secretary TTV Dhinakaran said on Sunday.
Speaking to media persons later, he said the AIADMK-BJP combine would win the Assembly elections to give Jayalalithaa’s governance again.
Palaniswami says if people from AMMK want to join the AIADMK, the party high command will decide on it
“Her call for unity does not apply to our cadre,” Jayakumar said responding to the statement.
