Verdict to write fate of Tamil Nadu's AIADMK govt

The 18 MLAs owing allegiance to jailed AIADMK leader V K Sasikala and her nephew T T V Dhinakaran, whose faction now functions under the name Amma Makkal Munnetra Kazhagam (AMMK), were disqualified by Assembly Speaker P Dhanapal in September last year after they submitted letters withdrawing their support to Chief Minister Edappadi K Palaniswami. 

If the disqualification is quashed, the government would plunge into minority status and might be forced to face a floor test by the Opposition since the Assembly is in session.
