The Amma faction Deputy General Secretary was denied a meeting with his aunt, though he tried to do so twice.
Tamil Nadu politics have been taking turns and twists with the ruling AIADMK clearly divided into three factions and OPS and EPS indulging in brinkmanship.
Sasikala’s nephew Dinakaran, who is on bail in attempt to bribe Election Commission official case, has created a controversy over his plans to take the reins of the party again. Palanisamy camp has asked to keep away.
TTV Dinakaran of AIADMK (Amma) was granted bail on Thursday by Delhi High Court in the case of bribing the Election Commission official for allotment of two leaves symbol.
Further embarrassing the Palaniswami government, IT sources informed the State government about the bribes paid by sand mining baron Sekhar Reddy to his own ministers and bureaucrats.
Discomfiture for the ruling AIADMK party is the arrest of Dinakaran by the Delhi police for his alleged attempt to bribe some Election Commission officials to secure the two-leaf symbol before the countermanding of the RK Nagar by-poll.
Accused in ‘cash for symbol’ case, Dinakaran was arrested and was sent to Tihar Jail. Now, the Enforcement Directorate (ED) has registered a money-laundering case against him and others in connection with EC bribery case.
The noose around Sasikala and faction leader TTV Dinakaran has been tightening.

OPS said on Tuesday that the Sasikala-Dinakaran duo must go for the sake of the party’s unity. He reiterated that he would get Jaya’s death probed.
The Tamil Badu political drama continues to unfold with a new dimension being added every now and then. A move to distance Sasikala and Dinakaran from the party and Government in order to achieve unity is afoot.
Dinakaran’s friend, who assured him that he could ‘manage’ the Election Commission and could get him the symbol of two leaves, is not an ordinary cheat. He is a go-getter and highly connected.
Revolt against Sasikala and her nephew Dinakaran is brewing in the official group of the AIADMK. The Ministers are keen on asking Sasikala and Dinakaran to step down from positions in order to save the party.
Dinakaran, Sasikala’s nephew, has been booked by the Delhi’s police for bribing the Election Commission. What is the main allegation?
