A large-margin victory for the VK Sasikala family in the RK Nagar bypoll swiftly led to bigger questions over the longevity of the O Panneerselvam-Edappadi Palaniswami-led AIADMK especially with Dhinakaran and many of his prominent aides asserting the government will be toppled in a span of three months
Speaking to reporters in Madurai on Sunday before he returned to Chennai, TTV Dhinakaran, who contested as an independent and won, said: "The people of RK Nagar have chosen who they want to see as their MLA after Amma (late former chief minister J Jayalalithaa...This government will now not last even for three months." AIADMK insiders say they will watch two court proceedings keenly — one challenging the disqualification of the 18 legislators who sided with Dhinakaran and the other seeking the disqualification of the OPS-led rebel faction that voted against Sasikala in the earlier trust vote.
