The ruling AIADMK (Amma) faction today announced constitution of a team to hold talks with the rival Panneerselvam camp on the issue of a possible patch up. Senior leader in the VK Sasikala faction and Cooperation Minister, Sellur K Raju, said Chief Minister K Palaniswami has constituted a team of "senior ministers" for the purpose. "The chances of the panel holding talks are high," Raju told a Tamil TV Channel. He said that since there was a "split between siblings", it would not be fair on the part of either side to put terms and conditions for the merger talks. Meanwhile, the O Panneerselvam camp took to Twitter to express its willingness to hold talks with the AIADMK (Amma) faction. "The AIADMK (Amma) faction has constituted a team to hold talks.
We are ready to hold consultations with that team if it meets us," the twitter handle, @OfficeofOPS, said.
