Sasikala sacks senior leader Madhusudanan as presidium chairman of AIADMK

The spotlight in Tamil Nadu on Friday is on governor Vidyasagar Rao as AIADMK general secretary VK Sasikala stakes claim to form the government. Acting chief minister O Panneerselvam dug his heels in and said “dharma” will triumph.

According to an AIADMK statement issued late at night, Sasikala handed over documents electing her as the leader of the legislature party. But this statement did not specify the number of legislators supporting her, reports IANS.

Panneerselvam, who was named the chief minister after J Jayalalithaa’s death in December, quit on February 5, clearing the way for Sasikala’s elevation to the state’s top job. The governor accepted his resignation the next day but on Wednesday Panneerselvam revolted, saying he was forced to resign and was willing to reconsider his decision.
