DMK asks Governor to direct CM to take floor test

Covai Post Network

Chennai: The political situation in the State in turmoil after MLAs, supporting TTV Dhinakaran submitting a letter to Governor CH Vidyasagar Rao seeking the removal of the Chief Minister, the Opposition DMK has urged the Governor to direct Edppadi K Palaniswami to prove his majority in the Assembly.

“Consequent upon the identical letters given by the MLAs today expressing lack of confidence in Chief Minister Edappadi K Palaniswami an unprecedented constitutional crisis has erupted in which the ruling government has lost the majority,” DMK working president MK Stalin said in the letter to the Governor.

“In similar occasion, the then governor of Karnataka directed B S Yedurappa, then Chief Minister, to prove his majority in the House,” Stalin said. “Any inordinate delay in asking the Chief Minister to prove his majority in the instant case will pave the way for continuance of an unconstitutional government and it will destablise the democratic norms,” he added.

The letter asks the Governor to direct Palaniswamy to prove his majority in the Assembly immediately. “Kindly uphold the constitutional norms and the parameters laid down in the famous judgment in SR Bommai case by the Supreme Court,” the letter says.
