AIADMK issues whip ahead of crucial floor test
Tamil Nadu will witness a crucial trust vote on Saturday. Chief Minister Edappadi Palanisamy will take the the trust vote in the Tamil Nadu legislative assembly at around 11 am. Palanisamy claims he has the numbers and he will need the support of 118 MLAs to win the trust vote and stay on as chief minister.
Palanisamy claims he has the support of 124 MLAs, and going by this, it appears he would win comfortably. The problem for him, though, could be posed by the O Panneerselvam group which claims to have the support of 10 MLAs including him. While Paneerselvam has been suspended from the party, the rest continue to be members of the AIADMK. So what happens if they vote against the government?
