Tamil Nadu, 21 August(Wishav Warta): Two factions of Tamil Nadu’s ruling AIADMK merged on Monday after weeks of speculation, potentially ending the political turmoil that has roiled the southern state after chief minister J Jayalalithaa’s death in December. Chief minister Edapaddi Palanisami and his predecessor O Panneerselvam shook hands at the party headquarters and proceeded to Jayalalithaa’s memorial to seek blessings. A few minutes later, Panneerselvam was sworn in as deputy chief minister as hundreds of workers burst crackers and distributed sweets.“No one can separate us, we are all children of Amma,” said Panneerselvam, invoking Jayalalithaa.
