Tamil Nadu Assembly Speaker, P Dhanapal stated, “18 protesting AIADMK MLAs faithful to sidelined party Deputy General Secretary TTV Dhinakaran precluded.”
One of the protesting MLAs, SKT Jakkaiyan, had later changed camps to help Palanisamy. These 18 MLAs had since been requesting the evacuation of the Chief Minister.
Earlier, Chief Government Whip S Rajendran had asked the Speaker to exclude the said MLAs for “hostile to party exercises” following their rebellion against the Chief Minister. Despite the fact that the Speaker had issued a notification to all the dissenting MLAs looking for their individual nearness, they did not turn up.
