The chorus is getting louder day-by-day to make Sasikala or ‘Chinna-Amma’, as the chief minister of the state. Till now supporters were demanding her to become AIADMK chief. Now even colleagues of O Panneerselvam, the current chief minister, want Sasikala as the chief minister.    

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.
