What started as mere rumors and speculation has now turned out to be true, as AIADMK General Secretary VK Sasikala has been unanimously chosen as the legislative party leader. This paves the way for her becoming the Chief Minister of Tamil Nadu. The decision was taken by party MLAs in an emergency meeting held today at the party headquarters. The meeting was delayed by around 45 minutes and went on for around 2 hours, after which the party MLAs announced their unanimous decision to appoint Sasikala as the legislative party leader.
Earlier, during the initial stages of the meeting, the current Chief Minister O Panneerselvam submitted his resignation and he himself proposed Sasikala’s name for the post of legislative party leader. After that, the party MLAs voted in favor of the proposal.
With Sasikala being chosen as the party’s top leader, it puts to rest various speculations surrounding the party and the political scene in the State. For many, it comes as a great surprise, as the current chief minister O Panneerselvam was handling things in an effective manner. Experts say that politics in Tamil Nadu is a lot different from other places, which is why such developments take place.
