DMK could think of berating TN Guv Ravi for firing Senthil Balaji

<p>According to sources on Friday, the DMK may consider all of its options and legal implications in relation to Governor RN Ravi’s later-reversed decision to remove Minister V Senthil Balaji from the Cabinet.</p>
<p>The party’s top brass may speak with its office holders and leaders to come up with a legal and political plan of action.<img decoding=”async” class=”alignnone wp-image-48206″ src=”https://www.theindiaprint.com/wp-content/uploads/2023/06/www.theindiaprint.com-dmk-could-think-of-berating-tn-guv-ravi-for-firing-senthil-balaji-download-98.jpg” alt=”” width=”1222″ height=”915″ srcset=”https://www.theindiaprint.com/wp-content/uploads/2023/06/www.theindiaprint.com-dmk-could-think-of-berating-tn-guv-ravi-for-firing-senthil-balaji-download-98.jpg 259w, https://www.theindiaprint.com/wp-content/uploads/2023/06/www.theindiaprint.com-dmk-could-think-of-berating-tn-guv-ravi-for-firing-senthil-balaji-download-98-150×112.jpg 150w” sizes=”(max-width: 1222px) 100vw, 1222px” /></p>
<p>All of the BJP’s political ploys to attack the DMK have failed in Tamil Nadu, an office-bearer told PTI, adding that “the Governor has backtracked and he has been thoroughly exposed.”</p>
<p>According to sources, because the dismissal was now on hold, there was no need to “immediately” look into legal issues or take anything else into account (such as the likelihood of political interests over the dismissal and a counter-strategy to thwart it).</p>
<p>After removing Balaji from the cabinet on Thursday, Ravi subsequently decided to postpone the decision.</p>
<p>However, insiders said that the DMK may explore examining legal alternatives to challenge the Governor for his alleged excesses and take on the BJP politically when the occasion calls for it.</p>
<p>An important figure in the western Kongu area is Senthil Balaji. He joined the DMK many years ago after leaving the AIADMK.</p>
<p>According to the DMK on Friday, the Raj Bhavan quickly suspended Ravi’s decision to remove Minister V Senthil Balaji from the Cabinet when the Union Home Ministry intervened.</p>
<p>According to the Union Home Ministry’s advice, Ravi’s direction to be fired was “put on hold within five hours,” according to the governing DMK organ “Murasoli.”</p>
<p>The Tamil daily highlighted the’strong criticism’ it provoked from legal experts and party officials while briefly outlining the series of events leading up to the dismissal decision on June 29.</p>
<p>According to the newspaper, “information” that the dismissal order was being postponed until the Attorney General’s opinion was obtained arrived around midnight. The Governor’s order was suspended in five hours, which is significant.</p>
<p>The governor informed the chief minister in a late-night message that he would speak with the attorney general and get his legal advice before making the decision. The governor had given an explanation for why he had fired Balaji from the cabinet.</p>
<p>The governor has deferred acting on the Council of Ministers’ directive to fire Balaji, who was detained by the Enforcement Directorate (ED) in a cash-for-jobs scheme and has since been hospitalised.</p>
<p>In the meanwhile, banners began to appear in the city asking whether “Guindy would write to Delhi” on the ongoing legal proceedings against a number of union ministers and call for their dismissal from the cabinet.</p>
<p>The Governor’s home is called Guindy, a clear allusion to the Raj Bhavan in Chennai.</p>
