After the conviction by the Supreme Court in the high-profile case of corruption, VK Sasikala has returned back to Bengaluru. Sources believe that she may surrender today in front of Bengaluru police as Supreme Court ordered a four year jail sentence to her.
Sasikala returned to Poes Garden residence late at night from Golden Bay resort after meeting with over 100 party legislators. She broke down while talking to the reporter and claimed that she will not be separated from AIADMK. The Supreme Court order clearly indicate that Sasikala cannot hold public office or contest elections for atleast 10 years.
Sasikala has chosen Edappadi K Palanisamy to head the AIADMK and he has staked his claim to form government in front of governor Rao.
O Panneerselvam camp also met the Governor and approached the remaining 120 legislators at the Golden Bay resort, but stopped by police.
Team Panneerselvam claimed that they have support of 11 MLA who are inside that Golden Bay resort but are being pressured to stay at the resort.
O Panneerselvam has support of 11 MLAs of the total 134 AIDML MLAs and if he can get 11 more to join him, the Sasikala camp will struggle to reach the 117 needed for a majority in the state assembly.
