Who is K Palanisamy?

People are calling Edappadi K Palanisamy as the proxy of VK Sasikala. After Sasikala was held accused by the Supreme Court of India in the disproportionate assets case (DA), she has left out in the race to become the next CM of Tamil Nadu. But a few minutes after the apex court verdict, Sasikala huddled up with her MLAs to decide on the future course of action, it was then that E Palanisamy emerged as the new name for Tamil Nadu. The apex court on Tuesday asked Sasikala to surrender herself.
