Speaking to ANI, Dhinakaran asserted that they will fight in court and claimed to win.
"It's a disappointment for the people of Tamil Nadu because they are un-happy with this government and they wanted us to form Amma Government (late Jayalalithaa). But because of this judgement...it is getting delayed," Dhinakaran said.
"They are all fighters ( MLAs in TTV faction) they want to their party back so they are fighting. If they want to get benefit they would have been with them (EPS faction)," he added.
"People are aware of this judgement and they know decision of speaker is illegal. They know one judge is correct. We will wait and fight in court and we will win. No matter what the temptation, all my MLAs are with me and we will continue to fight," Dhinakaran noted.
Earlier in the day, the Madras High Court passed a split verdict in the case of disqualification of 18 MLAs of AIADMK.
The matter will now be heard by a third judge.
The disqualified MLAs include: S Thangatamilselvan (Andipatti), R Murugan (Harur), S Mariappan Kennedy (Manamadurai), K Kadirkamu (Periyakulam), Jayanthi Padmanabhan (Gudiyattam), P Palaniappan (Pappireddypatti), V Senthil Balaji (Aravakurichi), S Muthiah (Paramakudi), P Vetrivel (Perambur), N G Pathiban (Sholingur), M Kodandapani (Tiruporur), T A Elumalai (Poonamallee), M Rengasamy (Thanjavur), R Thangadurai (Nilakottai), R Balasubramani (Ambur), S G Subramanian (Sattur), R Sundaraj (Ottapidaram) and Uma Maheswari (Vilathikulam).
Alleging mala fide intention by the Speaker, the rebel MLAs moved the Madras HC to reinstate them. Subsequently, the high court had then reserved its verdict.
If the disqualified MLAs are not allowed to sit in the House, the 234-seat Tamil Nadu state assembly's strength would come to 215.
