O Panneerselvam was appointed as the caretaker Chief Minister of Tamil Nadu after the death of former CM Jayalalithaa due to cardiac arrest. However a few weeks later, he resigned from his post and VK Sasikala was elevated as the party chief. But earlier this month, O Panneerselvam came back and said that he ‘was forced to resign from his post,’ and ever since he has been fighting against Sasikala for his post.
