Talks on the merger of the two AIADMK factions are going on smoothly and a positive result is expected in a day or two, former chief minister O Panneerselvam said on Saturday. He was speaking after leaders of the AIADMK (Puratchi Thalaivi Amma) faction led by him met here for informal discussions on the merger issue following last night's inconclusive patch-up bid, and to chart out their future course of action. Panneerselvam, who is scheduled to leave for Madurai on Sunday to attend a meeting there, was expected to elicit the opinion of the faction leaders here to arrive at any firm view on the merger issue.

RECAP | Another hiccup in the patch-up was that three MLAs in OPS camp refused to back the merger during the talks, saying that everything they have stood for till now would be compromised and they will lose credibility. Sources said that Panneerselvam will not go ahead with the merger till all his supporters are on board.

RECAP | Sources told News18 that the roadblock in the merger talks was caused because of a last minute demand from O Panneerselvam, who wanted to have the final say in party affairs in case of a disagreement.
