Tamil Nadu has a new Chief Minister – E Palanisami. Most of the AIADMK Ministers have been retained and loyalists have been rewarded. However, the story does not end here as the pressure is not any less. In 15 days, there is a crucial floor test where Palanisami has to prove majority. Meanwhile, the OPS camp has vowed to fight till they get justice. This evening, 30 Ministers have taken oath after E Palanisami was sworn in as Chief Minister of Tamil Nadu. What went in Palanisamy’s favour is that he has been a long time loyalist of Jayalalithaa, no one has ever questioned his credentials within the party and most importantly, Sasikala had favoured him over everyone else. “Centre has always had a good relationship and co-operation with O Panneerselvam. We have no interest in AIADMK’s internal party matters but it is a known fact that people do not support Sasikala,” Narayan Thirupathy, BJP spokesperson in Tamil Nadu told India Today news channel this afternoon.
