Chennai (Tamil Nadu), April 25 (ANI): Slamming the state government for not focusing on serious issues like water scarcity in Tamil Nadu, the DMK party on Tuesday asserted that the AIADMK government's sole purpose is to remain in power. DMK spokesperson Saravanan told ANI, "This OPS-EPS faction fight clearly illustrates one thing that AIADMK government is interested only in ensuring that they remain in power. They are not worry about the governance issues." Sarvanan further stated that the ruling dispensation in the state should resign and walk out rather than making the mockery of the entire democratic process. "Our working president M.K. Stalin has slammed this government. The AIADMK government is worried about opening of liquor shops, the national highway is denotified, but what have they done for water scarcity, these are the issues which the state is facing since long," he added. Meanwhile, the first round of merger talks between the OPS faction and that of Chief Minister E. Palanisamy (EPS) are likely to take place this week, with the two factions looking to merge and bring stability to the state government. Talks for a merger between the OPS and EPS camps gained ground after an FIR was registered against AIADMK deputy general secretary T.T.V. Dinakaran for bribing Election Commission officials for staking claim of the 'Two Leaves' symbol of the party. (ANI)
