The merger between two AIADMK factions hits another roadblock with the group led by former Chief Minister O. Panneerselvam demanding chief minister post as well as two ministerial berths to its leaders.

As per the earlier demand by OPS faction, the ruling AIADMK led by Chief Minister Edappadi K. Palaniswami officially sidelined V.K. Sasikala’s nephew T.T.V. Dhinakaran from the party.

With stage set for the talks, the OPS camp placed its fresh demand. Sources in the ruling faction said it was ready to offer deputy chief minister’s post and party general secretary position to OPS faction that was rejected by the latter.

“There are some minor issues. A formula is being worked out to remove all the differences,” Finance Minister D. Jayakumar said.

Though he refused to answer about the fresh demands made by the OPS faction, Jayakumar said there is a positive signal for the merger very soon.
