“If she has a plan B-projecting somebody else for the post of Chief Minister, she – will not succeed,” Palaniswamy said.

Exuding happiness at the judgement, DMK’s former MP Thamarai Selvan told IANS: “The judgement was expected as the Karnataka High Court justice Kumaraswamy’s decision acquitting late Chief Minister Jayalalithaa and others were riddled with holes and inconsistencies.”
