Sasikala to replace O Panneerselvam as Tamil Nadu Chief Minister soon

Sasikala to replace O Panneerselvam as Tamil Nadu Chief Minister soon

During a news conference, the Janasena chief didn't spare journalists either.

Chinnamma all set to become the Next Chief Minister of Tamil Nadu.

When Sasikala chose to strike back, Panneerselvam in keeping with his character avoided a showdown as he did not want to destabilise the government which has a comfortable majority in the Assembly and has a mandate to rule for another four years.

VK Sasikala had been a close aide of late Jayalalithaa who was introduced to the latter in connection with the recording of videos of party functions.

"As a responsible party, the DMK is watching the situation closely".

Chief minister O Panneerselvam proposed her name and was seconded by the party MLAs at the party headquarters. The incumbent chief minister, whose third stop-gap term seems to have lasted all of one month, cited "personal reasons" behind relinquishing responsibility.

For close to three decades, Sasikala, known as Chinnamma (younger mother) to her supporters, had been an nearly permanent fixture in Jayalalitha's life, and was often seen with the former chief minister on public platforms.

Besides, elections to local bodies will be a major test for her to demonstrate and establish her political credentials. "But I was not in a mental condition to do that, so I accepted only the leadership of the party".

Sometime back, Sasikala had met party officials from all parts of the state.The meeting also comes days after the advisor to Chief Minister Sheela Balakrishnan quit her post and two other officials were transferred.

In a show of unity, Panneerselvam may become Deputy Chief Minister, it is speculated.

Chennai: Outgoing Tamil Nadu Chief Minister O.Panneerselvam on Sunday thanked Prime Minister Narendra Modi and Governor Ch Vidyasagar Rao for their support and cooperation. She's also party to it. People greeted her but it never matched the one for Jayalalithaa. "Since she was very weak, she could not sign the paper and made the thumb impression instead", Apollo doctors said.

The general impression was that she may wait for the Supreme Court's verdict on the disproportionate asset case in which she is the second accused along with her niece Elavarasi and nephew Sudhakaran. "Chinnamma has all the requisite qualities to be an able administrator and a strong chief minister". He explained that unlike popular belief, sepsis can develop "extremely quickly", as in her case.

Sasikala has to win a MLA seat within six months to be retained as the CM as per the laws of Indian Constitution. Secondly, Tamil Nadu would have to undergo another election if AIADMK has to "honour" people sentiment.
