After MLAs loyal to TTV Dhinakaran expressed their disappointment with the current AIADMK government in Tamil Nadu, voices calling for a floor test are getting stronger with every passing day. Earlier, on August 21, the MLAs loyal to TTV Dhinakaran had met the governor to inform him about their lack of confidence in the current state government. The MLAs had told Governor Vidyasagar Rao that a floor test should be called since the government has lost its majority. Today, similar demands were made by DMK-led opposition parties. The delegation of opposition parties met the governor today and requested him to direct Chief Minister K Palaniswami to conduct a floor test. The floor test has become necessary in view of the rebellion by MLAs loyal to TTV Dhinakaran.
DMK working president MK Stalin pointed out that the current AIADMK government in Tamil Nadu only has support of 113 MLAs including the speaker. Stalin also said that the total MLAs who are opposing the current government is 120. He said that this clearly proves that the current government in Tamil Nadu has lost the confidence of the majority of MLAs. Stalin said that a constitution crisis is currently facing the state and the governor should take steps to restore democracy and good governance in the state. Governor Rao has assured the political parties that he would be evaluating the situation and would take the required steps as per the laws of the constitution.
