Cauvery row: TN to file contempt petition

Chennai: A day after two DMDK MLAs met Tamil Nadu Chief Minister J Jayalaithaa, two more party legislators on Saturday called on the AIADMK supremo, triggering off speculations of a possible rift in the main opposition party.

However, DMDK MLAs S Michael Rayappan and C Arun Pandian, said they had called on the Chief Minister at her Poes Garden residence to discuss about welfare activities in their respective constituencies, Radhapuram in Tirunelveli and Peravurani in Tanjavur district.

Their party colleagues S Sunderarajan and K Tamil Azhagan had met Jayalalithaa on Friday under a similar pretext.

Meanwhile, DMDK founder and Opposition Leader in the Tamil Nadu Assembly, Vijayakant refused to respond to these developments and said there were more important issues dominating the state.

He and some of his party supporters were also allegedly involved in an altercation with journalists at the airport in Chennai.
