Governor Rao called on Rajnath Singh at his residence in New Delhi, a day after Speaker P Dhanapal disqualified 18 MLAs owing allegiance to rebel AIADMK leader TTV Dhinakaran.
He arrived in Delhi on Monday and met President Ram Nath Kovind and Finance Minister Arun Jaitley.
The Governor, who has been urged by opposition parties and dissident AIADMK legislators to immediately convene the assembly to enable a floor test, is yet to take a decision on when to ask Chief Minister K. Palaniswami to face a trial of strength.
Speaker Dhanapal's decision to disqualify the 18 MLAs of the Dhinakaran camp has given an edge to the ruling side in the number game in the assembly.
