The party faced a similar political crisis when he died in 1987, leading to a power struggle between his wife Janaki Ramachandran and Jayalalithaa. Later, the party decided decided that Sasikala would take over from Mr Panneerselvam as chief minister of Tamil Nadu. Why was Panneerselvam quiet for so many days? I argued for over two hours about this.
Events are expected to come to a head on Friday or Monday when the Supreme Court delivers its verdict in the disproportionate assets case in which Sasikala is among the four accused.
The channel, which said it has a copy of the report sent by the governor, reported that he also took note of the PILs against Sasikala, on which verdict was pending. There, one MLA, Vaikundam Shanmughanathan, sneaked out and joined the O Panneerselvam camp, giving credence to the ousted chief minister's charge that the MLAs are being held against their wishes and were forced to sign letters of support to Sasikala submitted to the governor.

Sasikala has the support of about 130 of the party's 135 legislators, most of whom are now lodged in a resort in Chennai.

Both Sasikala and Panneerselvam are against each other to be at the helm and are trying to prove majority. Reacting to the reference made by Paul Pandian on Tuesday that there was suspicion in the minds of people about the death of Jayalalithaa, the caretaker Chief Minister said a retired High Court judge would probe the whole issue.
According to reports, Union minister Venkaiah Naidu has said that the Centre will back OPS as "he was chosen by Jayalalithaa".
Radhakrishnan, a BJP member of the Lok Sabha from Tamil Nadu also said the situation is not like "a game of card where one can deal a card soon after picking a new one". However, in the light of conflicting claims, it would be justified in seeking to ascertain who commands a majority.
