Congress and IUML representatives allied with the DMK were also a part of the delegation that met the Governor.

"With the DMK and its allies having a strength 98 MLAs in the Assembly and the ruling party's 21 dissenting legislators, the AIADMK government, led by K Palaniswami, has lost its majority in the House", PTI quotes Stalin as saying at a public meeting here on Saturday night.
