Tamil Nadu Chief Minister Edappadi K Palaniswami on Friday took a dig at AIADMK Amma’s deputy chief TTV Dinakaran and said the apt word for him is ‘420’, according to news agency ANI. This comes a day after the TTV Dinkaran camp hit out at Palaniswami for questioning the authority of the Deputy General Secretary. The chief minister was also called a ‘traitor’ by two senior leaders of the Dinakaran camp.

Earlier in the day, the chief minister also met Prime Minister Narendra Modi and discussed a range of issues, including the merger of the AIADMK factions. He also spoke to PM Modi about the state’s demand of exemption from NEET exam.

Addressing the media after his meet with the Prime Minister, Palaniswami also reacted to the opposition DMK’s statement that it would move a motion of no confidence against the government “if required”. He said his party will sail through in case DMK brings a no confidence motion against them in Tamil Nadu Assembly again.

DMK working president M K Stalin’s statement of no confidence motion comes a day after the Palaniswami faction said Dinakaran’s appointment as the deputy general secretary of Tamil Nadu’s ruling party was against party bye-laws and questioned his authority to intervene in party affairs.

    Thanks to BJP govt at the center, there is stable government in TN inspite of all theatrics by DMK/PMK type useless parties. Just imagine what would have happened there is Sonia's UPA were in power. It it time for BJP to ropr in united ADMK into NDA as Jaya was anyway close to NDA than UPA and her arch rival corrupt DMK of 2G fame was with corrupt UPA of Adarsh/2g/3g/rail/road/plane/helicoptor/land .. scams.

    The most important query if you know very well Dinakaran is 420 why not throw him OUT from AIADMK and also the jailed Sasikala from her post and from the Party and show your gut feeling to the people of Tamil Nadu who will whole heartedly welcome such move by TN CM !!! Will you EPS ????

    Kudos to TN CM Mr.EPS. Yes, TTV is a shameless 420 and he should be eliminated from AIADMK permanently for the betterment of the party and the TN government. Of -course the opposition party take this opportunity and will make every attempt to bringdown the government lead by Mr.EPS but eventually they'll fail again. Also the move by the opposition and the 420 will strengthen the ruling party and will pave way for the quicker merger of EPS OPS factions with the strong support of BJP.
