The two factions of AIADMK might merge back soon
The two factions that AIADMK had split into might soon merge back again to form one party, a Tamil Nadu minister hinted today.

As per a report in PTI, a Tamil Nadu minister described his party as one "without father and mother," and said that people's aspirations for unity in the now divided AIADMK was being reflected among the leaders in both camps.

Cooperation Minister Sellur K Raju also said that preparations for the keenly anticipated merger talks between the two factions were on. The talks are expected to be led by Chief Minister K Palaniswami and his predecessor O Panneerselvam.

"AIADMK is a movement without father and mother. Our Amma (mother-Jayalalithaa) is no more," he said.

"People and supporters want the party, which Amma built through her hard work, to be united. This aspiration is reflected among the leaders of both factions," he told reporters.

Raju was also confident that the AIADMK government will complete its term of five years as well as retain power in the 2021 Assembly polls.

When asked whether the faction will also remove posters of AIADMK chief VK Sasikala from the party's district offices also, he said a panel has been formed to look into the matter.

The question was prompted by the banners featuring Sasikala being pulled down from the AIADMK headquarters yesterday. This was done after a demand for the same was made by the rival faction led by Panneerselvam on Tuesday.

Though the AIADMK (Amma) faction said that the decision to pull down the banners was taken earlier and that it had nothing to do with Panneerselvam camp's demand.
