The rift between AIADMK leaders, O Panneerselvam and Sashikala Natarajanparty deepens and party MLAs are made to choose sides between the two. In order to keep her loyal members together, Sasikala takes 130 MLAs in 3 buses to an undisclosed location. According to sources, the MLAs have been taken to a 5 star hotel near the airport in Chennai until governor arrives in the city.

Earlier today while addressing the media outside his residence, O Panneerselvam hinted that he might oust Sasikala from AIADMK chief’s post and would withdraw his resignation if required. He said, “Sasikala Natarajan remains interim General secretary of AIADMK. If party cadres ask me to withdraw my resignation, I will do that.” He also said that he will soon prove his strength in the Tamil Nadu legislative assembly.

After this Sasikala Natarajan hit back at O Panneerselvam and called him a traitor while addressing the media after her meeting with the party MLAs at the party headquarters in Chennai. 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.”
