This In­de­pen­dence Day could well mean free­dom from squab­bles for the AIADMK. A few of its MPs are set to en­ter PM Modi’s cab­i­net in a ma­jor reshuf­fle re­port­edly sched­uled af­ter Au­gust 15. The move is to shore up the NDA ahead of the 2019 Lok Sabha polls, but will also see Tamil Nadu chief min­is­ter Edap­padi K. Palaniswami heave a sigh of re­lief. Fewer squab­bling lead­ers will mean he can at last fo­cus on gov­er­nance, which has taken a back seat since the demise late last year of CM and party supremo J. Jay­alalithaa.
