The revolt is all out between caretaker Tamil Nadu Chief Minister O Panneerselvam and Sasikala Natarajan in Tamil Nadu for the CM’s office. While O Panneerselvam openly rebelled against her leadership, Sashikala hits back at O Panneerselvam’s act of ‘betrayal’ the party. Sasikala Natarajan attended a meeting with the AIADMK MLAs at the party headquarters to address the situation after which she addressed the media where she said, “After Amma’s demise, the supporters asked me to take the responsibility; I couldn’t as I was very sad. I could sense the acts of CM who completely connived with the opposition.”

Hitting back at O Panneerselvam, she said, “Wrongdoings which Panneerselvam had done, as General Secretary it became my responsibility to put an end to it. Our opponents are after us and spearheading whatever is happening today, but nothing can stop us from following Amma’s path. Will give a big blow to the act of betrayal and disloyalty, Panneerselvam colluded with the party which Amma fought against.”
Earlier today, caretaker Chief Minister O Panneerselvam took on AIADMK interim chief Sasikala and said that he will prove his strength in the assembly to remain in chief minister’s post. Panneerselvam needs the support of as many party MLAs as possible to win the party’s majority in the assembly. O Panneerselvam after raising a flag of revolt against Sasikala on February 8 addressed a press conference and said, “I will prove my strength in the assembly.” AIADMK party’s strength in the state Assembly is 134 seats while DMK holds 89 seats. Panneerselvam claims the support of 65 MLAs.
