Palaniswami asserted his government could not be toppled

Vastavam web: Tamil Nadu Chief Minister K Palaniswami today asserted that his government could not be toppled, though some forces harbored such hopes.”Some think the government can be toppled. That is never possible as workers and supporters have put in their hard work for its formation,” he said in a veiled attack on sidelined party leader T T V Dhinkaran who is seeking his ouster.His comments came on a day when 18 AIADMK MLAs loyal to Dhinakaran were disqualified in the midst of the escalating tussle for supremacy in the party.
“Not just the government or the party but not even a single AIADMK supporter could be bought,” Palaniswami, who has been targeting the opposition DMK in recent days, asserted.The party is being steered with the blessings of AIADMK stalwarts, its founder M G Ramachandran and late chief minister J Jayalalithaa, he said.The chief minister also trained his guns against AIADMK’s archrival DMK, saying the main opposition party’s attempts to capture power had been “shattered” by the AIADMK supporters.Following the earlier split in the party, DMK had ambitions of capturing power, but that could not happen as supporter of “Amma” (late Chief Minister J Jayalalithaa) had “shattered” them, he said.
