Tamil Nadu governor C Vidyasagar Rao on Tuesday met Union home minister Rajnath Singh, a day after 18 rebel AIADMK MLAs loyal to sidelined leader TTV Dinakaran were disqualified under the anti-defection law.

During the 20-minute meeting, the governor is believed to have apprised the home minister about the current political developments in the southern state, officials said.

The disqualified MLAs had yesterday told the governor that they had no confidence in Tamil Nadu chief minister E Palaniswami, and accused him of being corrupt.

Rao, who is governor of Maharashtra, is holding additional charge of Tamil Nadu.
