'Super Sunday' for OPS as support grows

Earlier in the day, Sasikala "relieved" Lakshmanan from the post of district secretary Villupuram (North) and replaced him with Law Minister C Ve Shanmugam.

AIADMK Fisheries wing Joint Secretary K A Jeyapaul, a Minister in the 2011-16 Jayalalithaa cabinet and former Erode Mayor Mallika Paramasivan also joined the Panneerselvam camp today.

The AIADMK leader said that she was not a bit anxious about a probe but it is sad that Jayalalithaa's death was being politicised.

The chief minister has the support of the seven MLAs as of now.

"A situation has come wherein nothing will happen in politics without the people's knowledge", Ramarajan said, amid thunderous applause from thousands of supporters, who have thronged the residence of OPS to express their support and solidarity. Both Lakshmanan and Rajendran, addressing the media at the residenceof OPS in the city, said Mr Panneerselvam has the support of the people andasserted that more MPs would desert Sasikala and join the OPS camp. According to a few reports, the central government doesn't want the governor to allow Sasikala or Panneerselvam to stake claims. "Our first job is to make "Chinnamma' the chief minister of Tamil Nadu", he said". The cries of online protests have intensified in the past couple of days on news that Sasikala has herded away 125-odd members of the state legislature in three luxury buses to a resort 120km from Chennai. The Congress has also declined to support Sasikala.

CNN-News18 reported that the verdict in the disproportionate assets case against VK Sasikala and J Jayalalithaa in the Supreme Court will not be announced on Monday and that it could even take all week for the apex court to announce its decision.

Sasikala, a shadow of Jayalalithaa for almost three decades, is set to become the chief Minister of Tamil Nadu as the AIADMK Legislature Party yesterday elected her as its leader, over a month after she became the party's powerful General Secretary.

Sasikala on Saturday shot off a letter to the governor raising questions over the delay. "MLAs can not be kept hostage". Former Finance Minister and veteran leader C Ponnaiyan also backed him. THE STALIN GAME Meanwhile, party cadres feel Panneerselvam has fallen in DMK's trap. He also sorted out the water issue with neighbouring Andhra Pradesh by meeting chief minister N.Chandrababu Naidu.

The sources said that in view of the impending judgment, a doubt has been raised whether Sasikala will be in a position to contest an election to get elected as a legislator within six months.
