The state machinery is also working to mount pressure on Panneerselvam so that he resigns from the post. According to a source, “Situations are being created where Panneerselvam himself would step down from the post.”
It is expected that a general body meeting of AIADMK would be held on December 26 or December 29 to give a formal consent to Sasikala as party general secretary.
