Chennai: The ongoing tussle for power in the ruling AIADMK today saw the government whip seeking disqualification of the 19 MLAs supporting sidelined deputy general secretary TTV Dhinakaran from the Tamil Nadu Assembly following their revolt against Chief Minister K Palaniswami.

Chief government whip S Rajendran took up with the Assembly Speaker the issue of disqualification of all 19 legislators who met state Governor Ch Vidyasagar Rao two days ago.

Based on the chief whip’s recommendation, Speaker P. Dhanapal has sent a notice to the 19 AIADMK legislators seeking an explanation.

The Dinakaran faction has hit back and threatened to go to court against the recommendations of the Palaniswami government’s chief whip, as per sources.
