Asserting that many development works have stagnated due to the crisis in ruling AIADMK, DMK leader MK Stalin on Monday urged the Governor to take immediate step to resolve the issue. “Many of the development works have stagnated, most important issues are drinking water, farmer suicides, drought situation. Governor should immediately take steps to establish a stable government in the state,” said Stalin.

He refused to comment on the disproportionate asset case in which Supreme Court’s verdict is pending but said he is not favoring any faction in the AIADMK. “We will only comment on the DA case once it is out, can’t comment right now. We are not supporting any faction, AIADMK is our opponent and we oppose them as a whole,” said Stalin.

Meanwhile, the crisis within the AIADMK deepened further with both Panneerselvam and Sasikala attacking each other publicly. Suggesting that O Panneerselvam did not resign on his own, Sasikala said the Chief Minister was asked to go because he “hobnobbed” with the party’s arch rival DMK.
