Chennai : The AIADMK issue is changing on every passing day. The merger between the two fractions is looking smooth. The O Panneerselvam faction of the AIADMK has stepped up its demand for a CBI probe into J Jayalalithaas death, VK Sasikala and her nephew TTV Dinakaran's exit from the AIADMK.

Even as talks of unification between the OPS faction and the E Palaniswami faction are on, OPS has stated that there can be no merger if this demand is not met.

TTV Dinakarans announcement to step aside, after the majority group within the Sasikala camp decided to keep her family away from party affairs has set the stage for the merger.

The single major issue between the two groups had been OPS insistence that no one from the Sasikala family should have anything to do with the party affairs.

While a number of ministers and MLAs from the Sasikala faction had come around to the view that both Sasikala and Dinakaran needed to be eased out of the party, they were still divided on how to go about achieving it.


OPS has maintained that not once were they allowed to see Jayalalithaa in hospital though they had stayed put at the hospital all along.
