From being minister to the chief minister-elect has been a stratospheric height for Sasikala supporter Edappadi K Palaniswami – will last. Only an hour after Sasikala was articulated liable by the Supreme Court in the 1996 unbalanced resources Case, the MLAs who had a place with her camp chose Palaniswami as the governing body party pioneer to keep rival O Panneerselvam under control. This occurred at the Golden Bay Resort outside Chennai, where Sasikala arranged camp with around 130 AIADMK MLAs.
Why Sasikala chose Palaniswami as Tamilnadu Chief Minister?
First, you need to know about Palaniswami, he has dependably been normal at Poes Garden, supported by both Amma and Chinnamma. When Jayalalithaa was sick and having treatment at the Apollo Hospital he was tipped to assume control over her portfolios, including police. How OPS advanced the gesture beyond was never clear. Throughout the entire drama following Panneerselvam’s rebellion, Palaniswami unflinchingly backed Sasikala, attacking OPS and gathering AIADMK MLAs around to support her. Before the MLAs were gathered in Golden Bay resortMahabalipuram, Chennai, they were reportedly first taken to Palaniswami’s house.
Palaniswami is not even politically either. He is a third-time MLA from Edappadi in the Kongu area which chose hopefuls from 45 out of 57 seats – a vital commitment in Jayalalithaa’s diminished greater part in 2015. He is a Gounder, an overwhelming in reverse rank which frames the foundation of the AIADMK alongside the Thevar people group to which Sasikala has a place. That is a sharp political exercise in careful control.
A couple of hours after the SC decision, Panneerselvam and co were purportedly set to leave for Golden Bay to free the “hostage” MLAs while the Sasikala camp was uncovering channels to battle it lawfully and politically. How the governmental issues play out later in the day will decide to what extent Palaniswami stays in the spotlight.
