Asserting that the Governor was, indeed, politicising the issue, Stalin reiterated that the BJP led Centre has intimidated the ruling dispensation in TN and made them fall in line with the use of I-T and Enforcement Directorate. Asked if he saw BJP intervention in the functioning of the State Governor, the DMK working president said, “Certainly. No doubt about that. You saw him (Rao) get OPS and EPS shake hands. It is not an insult to the office of the Governor and democracy.” Taking strong exception to the Governor’s reported “Ball is not in my court” statement, the Leader of Opposition asked why the same Governor, who had ordered the convention of the House when OPS asked for it, has not done it now? “DMK will use the ball in its court, if necessary, at the appropriate time,” said Stalin who has got all but BJP to rally against the AIADMK led by OPS and EPS.
