High drama as AIADMK party looks to be headed for a split

High drama as AIADMK party looks to be headed for a split

He has public sympathy, his outburst against the Mannargudi mafia has provoked an outpouring of anti-Sasikala rants from across society but how many MLAs can possibly cross over when 130 are already locked up by Sasikala in all expenses paid luxe hotels? "We will give a big blow to the act of betrayal and disloyalty", Sasikala told his party members.

The EC may even set aside Sasikala's elevation, the source added. In slamming Sasikala fresh after resigning from the CM's post, he is echoing the common man's voice in Tamil Nadu. I used to record songs for her. O. Panneerselvam has betrayed Amma.

"Someone chosen by the grassroots cadre should be the general secretary; one acceptable to the people should be the chief minister". However, he came out in open defiance against AIADMK chief VK Sasikala after the party made a decision to replace him with VK Sasikala, a close-aide of Jayalalithaa.

Tamil Nadu Ex-Chief Minister O Panneerselvam on Tuesday announced a revolt against Sasikala Natarajan and those who want her to take over as Tamil Nadu Chief Minister.

At 12:24 hrs Apollo Hospitals Enterprises was quoting at Rs 1,231.00, down Rs 25.95, or 2.06 percent.

Party leader Thambidurai claimed Sasikala has the support of 134 out of 234 lawmakers. Sasikala said she's ready to probe over Jaya's death and lashed back at Panneer for allegedly joining with Opposition DMK in the coup.

The petition filed by Chennai-resident Senthil Kumar, General Secretary of NGO Satta Panchayat Iyakkam, is not there in the mentioning list for Wednesday and there is all likelihood that his advocate would make a mention of it before an appropriate bench for urgent hearing on Wednesday. A doctor close to Sasikala is said to have administered the wrong medicine to Jayalalithaa.

Panneerselvam said the legislature party meeting of the AIADMK at the party headquarters on Sunday was convened without his knowledge. "I opposed, it", he said.

He said the appointment of Sasikala as party general secretary itself was against the wish of late Chief Minister and party boss Jayalalithaa. He asserted that he will meet the Governor and prove on the floor of the Assembly the support he has among the legislators.

Earlier, speaking to a Tamil television channel, Panneerselvam said he will not seek the support of any other party to form the government.

Even as a war of allegations and mud-slinging broke out on the ground, the feud between Sasikala and former CM O Panneerselvam has also penetrated into social media.
