Chennai: The two AIADMK factions are likley to merge. The merger can be announced by Saturday. Hectic political activities are on here  with regard to the possible merger. Former CM J Jayalalithaa's memorial has been decked up as the leaders of both factions are expected to visit their post merger.

The AIADMK had split following the demise of founder leader M G Ramachandran in 1987.The two factions at present are led by Chief Minister K Palaniswami and rebel leader and former Chief Minister O Panneerselvam.

The prospects of merger of the factions had brightened after the state government on Thursday announced a probe by a retired high court judge into the death of Jayalalithaa, over which suspicions were raised by the rebel camp.

Palaniswami also announced that Jayalalithaa's Poes Garden residence here would be turned into a government-run memorial, two key demands of the OPS faction.
