The Supreme Court has filed a suit in the High Court to order the Governor of Tamil Nadu to issue confidence vote in the Assembly. It is coming to trial soon.
Lawyer P.Bukulanthi filed a case in the Chennai High Court saying:
After the death of former Chief Minister Jayalalitha, the AIADMK has been furious. In this context, on February 16, the Tamil Nadu governor Vidyasagar Rao was sworn in as the first Chief Minister of Tamil Nadu.
He also ordered the majority to demand a vote of confidence in the legislature. Accordingly, the first-ever minister Edappadi Palinasamy lasted on 18 February in the assembly. 122 ADMK and MLAs voted for him.
But there is an internal conflict that is at present in the AIADMK. The AIADMK, MLAs have not been trusted by the first minister-and have withdrawn their support on the 22nd.
In this connection, they have given their letters directly to the Governor of Tamil Nadu. The first government-led Ettappi Palanisamy-led government has now lost the majority.
But the governor did not order the first Chief Minister of Tamil Nadu to prove his majority in the Assembly.
The Leader of Opposition in Tamilnadu has also sent a letter to the Governor. In a kind of political situation prevailing in Tamil Nadu, the Governor has failed to do his duties under the constitution.
This act of governor will lead to unwarranted horse bargains. So, immediately the Chief Minister of Tamil Nadu should make a mandate to the trust vote in the Assembly to prove the majority of his government.
It is said.
The case is likely to be brought to trial soon.
