The two rival factions of the ruling AIADMK in Tamil Nadu are in "advanced" talks to reconcile, the Supreme Court was told today in a request that sought a pause in an aggressive fight for power. O Panneerselvam or OPS claims that his successor as Chief Minister, E Palaniswami or EPS, won a trust vote in February through a questionable process.
