The Madras High Court today continued its stay on a floor test in the Tamil Nadu Assembly after hearing a hearing a petition challenging the Tamil Nadu Speaker's decision last month to disqualify 18 legislators of the ruling AIADMK loyal to VK Sasikala, who has been evicted by the party as its chief. The case gas been adjourned to next Monday. Today, the High Court also ordered Speaker P Dhanapal to respond by October 12, to opposition party DMK's demand for action against 11 legislators of the ruling party who had voted against chief minister E Palaniswami in a trust vote earlier this year as part of the rebel camp of O Panneerselvam. The two factions of the AIADMK have since reunited.
