A day after TTV Dinakaran signalled his return to politics, former minister and hardcore OPS supporter KP Munusamy on Saturday said former chief minister J Jayalalithaa had earlier expelled the incumbent AIADMK deputy general secretary and, therefore, there was no reason for him to appoint his loyalists as office-bearers of the party. “TTV Dinakaran is not in AIADMK. Amma already removed him from party. No reason for him to appoint party functionaries,” KP Munusamy was quoted as saying by ANI.

Commenting on Tamil Nadu Health Minister C Vijayabaskar, who is currently embroiled over corruption charges, Munusamy said, “He (Vijaya Bhaskar) should resign and come clean over corruption charges. It would be good for him and party.”

Earlier in April, the Income Tax authorities had conducted multiple raids on premises belonging to Bhaskar, his aides and associates. The searches unearthed documents on alleged routing of about Rs 89 crore to voters of R K Nagar. The by-poll in that assembly segment was subsequently cancelled.

On Friday, Dinakaran had announced a statewide tour from August 14 “to prepare his party for the general elections in 2019”. The AIADMK (Amma) faction leader had made 44 new appointments in the party, including 18 organising secretaries. While Thoppu K Venkatachalam, former ministers P Palaniappan and Senthil Balaji and Nanjil Sampath were among the Dinakaran supporters who got key party posts, Dinakaran said the time had arrived for him to step in.

“Yes, I stayed away from the party after a group of ministers said they can facilitate the merger in our absence. I made it clear. I said I will be more than happy if the party gets united in my absence. But what happened in the last two months? Those ministers led by Jayakumar did not achieve anything in the last 60 days. So here I am, stepping in,” he had told mediapersons in a press briefing outside his residence.

    The whole clan of corrupt criminals and rogue Sashaikala family should be eliminated from the soil of TN. It's shame on EPS to support these crminals and rogue monsters. Both EPS AND ops are rogues and highly corrupt criminals and have looted the TN to the core. Also it's shame on PM to ask the support of these criminal rogues and what credibility does PM when he seeks support from these corrupt criminals. As a principled person he should have moved away from this partyu and should have dissolved this Govt when the entire Govt machinery is not working and one can see corruption corruption corruption every where. There is no water, no proper food being distributed at the ration shops, highly corrupt corporation, filth and dirt every where, no law and order situation. These people are interested in looting the public's money and PM is looking like a dumb follower.

    TTV dinkaran must be sent to jail as he is a criminal and no one loyal to amma should ever listen to him. Amma's injury and sickness must be investigated as she was killed in a murder conspiracy. OPS must be the worthy successor as he was chosen by amma and dinkaran must be isolated as this is what amma did when she was alive.
