Tamil Nadu Minister for Forests Dindigul C Srinivasan on Monday alleged that the state government officials were not extending their full-support and were in constant touch with DMK and other parties, reported The New Indian Express.

While speaking at the MGR centenary celebrations at Singaperumalkoil, Dindigul Srinivasan stated that the officials who were supposed to co-operate with the state government are spreading rumours that it will not last. 

The officials are acting out of fear whether or not this government will last, reported TNIE.

He also made allegations that the officials are in touch with DMK and other political parties.

Asked about the patching up of two factions, Chief Minister Edapaddi Palanisamy assured that both the factions will come together “very soon”.

However, the faction led by O Panneerselvam said that they will continue their protests against those who fail to do their public duties. 

They also announced protests in Chennai to criticise the state government for its inefficiency to keep a check on dengue.

Former minister Munusamy said that protests were being organised to make the government realise its public duties. 

He added that talks cannot happen unless the demands are met. 

He said that only of VK Sasikala and her family members were kept away from the party and a probe should be ordered into the death of former Chief Minister Jayalalithaa, reported TNIE.

Moreover, AIADMK leader O Panneerselvam said on Sunday that the government was having an alliance with the DMK. However, chief minister Edapaddi Palanisamy had refuted such allegations.
