A resolution to this effect was passed after a 90-minute meeting convened by Palaniswami with party office-bearers that included ministers, MPs and MLAs. Here, however, the BJP is expecting a fast marriage of the two factions of the ruling AIADMK which has seen a rift following the death of J Jayalalithaa, the supremo of the party and the state's then chief minister, in December past year. Reacting to the development, Dhinakaran warned of "surgical action" against Palaniswami and rubbished the party statements questioning his appointment as AIADMK (Amma) deputy general secretary and that of party chief V K Sasikala. The merger talks were fast-tracked as Dinakaran tried to assert his position with a series of appointments.
AIADMK has been one among the prestigious parties of Tamil Nadu.
The two leaders will be in the national capital on Thursday to attend M Venkaiah Naidu's swearing-in ceremony as the Vice President.
This led to speculation that the two warring factions of the AIADMK are all set to merge.

"The EPS camp has accepted that Sasikala was appointed as GS".
Significantly, the meeting said "Though Sasikala's appointment as general secretary was till such time the formal election of a new general secretary as per party laws, she could not function in view of extraordinary circumstances", an apparent reference to her getting jailed in the disproportionate assets case in February last. One of them said their faction was firm that a merger could only take place if Sasikala and her clan were expelled from the party. Top BJP leaders said an overhaul of the state party machinery was in the works as Shah wants BJP to become more visible in the state.
According to AIADMK bylaws, only those who had been a member for five consecutive years can hold posts. The BJP stands to gain at the state in return in the future elections with the assistance of the AIADMK, the largest party, and also the presence of the iconic actor Rajinikanth.
He wondered how the EPS camp could comment against Sasikala when they themselves had furnished an affidavit to the EC, endorsing her appointment as party chief. Another significant aspect of the resolution signed by 27 office bearers, including Palaniswami, is that it did not use the honorific of "Chinamma" to refer Sasikala, as was the practice in the past.
