AIADMK Crisis Continues, DMK Likely To Back O Panneerselvam

To assess the ongoing political crisis playing out in the state of Tamil Nadu, the DMK convened an emergency meet. Retracting from its earlier stand, sources in the party told The Indian Express that the party will likely reconsider the option of extending support to O Panneerselvam, in case Governor Vidyasagar Rao calls for a floor test. On Tuesday, hours after the Supreme Court convicted Sasikala Natarajan in the disproportionate assets case, AIADMK MLAs elected Edappadi Palanisami as the legislature party leader. He also met the Governor and staked claim to form the government.
