Panneerselvam as Madras High Court on Thursday ruled out floor test in the state Assembly till September 20, according to CNN News18 report. They raised slogans against the Chief Minister and the Deputy Chief Minister after the AIADMK (Amma and PTA) passed resolutions against Ms. Sasikala and Mr. Dhinakaran, removing them from the posts of general secretary and deputy general secretary respectively.
