The AIADMK faction headed by former Tamil Nadu Chief Minister O Panneerselvam today stressed that the party has to complete all formalities on removal of Sasikala and her family members for the merger to be effective.
"They claim to have removed Sasikala's family but they have to take back the affidavit submitted to EC calling Sasikala as general secretary and TTV as deputy," former minister KP Munusamy told reporters here.
He said the party should get their resignation letters and issue a statement that they have been removed from AIADMK.
"If this is done, we'll accept that our demand has been accepted," the OPS camp leader said adding that the state government should recommend the Centre to initiate a CBI enquiry into Jayalalithaa's death.
Commenting on leaders of present dispensation remarking about CM's post, he said they never demanded it and isn't the issue.
"We never asked for CM or GS post. We wanted the doubts to be cleared on Jayalalitha's death," he said reiterating that they began this dharma yudh with two conditions - a judicial probe into Amma's death and removing Sasikala's family.
"Why should Thambidurai talk about CM post? Nobody respects Thambidurai," he said adding that TTV Dinakaran was evicted because he has many cases against him that is why Sasikala family removed him.
Munusamy said since Jayalalithaa has died and Karunanidhi is not active there is a political void in Tamil Nadu and only OPS can fill it.
