After O Panneerselvam’s revelation at the Jayalalithaa memorial on Marina beach on February 7 night, Tamil Nadu politics has taken a fresh turn of attairs. Panneerselvam said that he was “forced” to resign to make way for VK Sasikala. He said that he wasn’t informed in advance about the legislature party’s meeting to elect Sasikala as the party chief and that her appointment was communicated to him at the last moment. With the twist in the already dramatised Tamil Nadu politics, Twitter started buzzing with a lot of people reacting strongly to the news.
