Dindigul Sreenivasan has been appointed in his place. In a dramatic turn of events, the acting Chief Minister of Tamil Nadu said he was forced to resign and clear the way for Sasikala, who was made the legislative party head of the AIADMK on Sunday. Soon after the incident, an emergency meeting of senior AIADMK party leaders and ministers was held at Sasikala Natarajan’s Poes Garden residence.
