Chennai: “Dhinakaran sent mediators to me more than 100 times. I met Dhinakaran when he wanted to topple the government formed by Jayalalithaa. I did meet TTV on July 12, 2017, asking him not to topple the AIADMK government,” OPS told a packed press conference at his official residence. “This is a conspiracy and none of his designs will fructify,” Panneerselvam said, adding he would never aspire to become Chief Minister, and that too by crooked means.
