There is no clarity yet on when AIADMK chief J Jayalalithaa would return as Tamil Nadu chief minister. However, according to her party leaders their Amma (Jayalalithaa) would be the chief minister again by next week.
Party spokesperson CR Saraswathi speaking to Governance Now said, “we hope by next week Amma will return as chief minister. By this weekend MLAs meeting is expected to be held.” As a strong believer of astrology, Amma would consult the astrologers for auspicious date and time of the swearing-in ceremony, Saraswathi disclosed.
Their hopes were strengthened on Wednesday when Jayalalithaa met chief minister O Panneerselvam and a few senior ministers for the first time since the Karnataka high court verdict of May 11. The meeting, lasting about one hour, led to speculations that Pannerselvam was likely to submit his resignation.
However, no official word was available on the deliberations.
It is also believed that the discovery of errors in the judgment is giving anxious moments to Jayalalithaa’s legal team. Jayalalithaa is said to have spending considerable time on the 919-page judgment copy.
Meanwhile, the DMK and PMK, stepped up their campaign on the judgment and were exploring legal options.
PMK chief S Ramadoss said, “there were many deficiencies in the judgement that have allowed Jayalalithaa to escape. But what is more worrying is that many of the observations in the judgment can undermine the efforts to eradicate corruption in India.”
DMK supremo M Karunanidhi and Ramadoss have appealed to the Karnataka government to challenge the judgment in the Supreme Court.
The PMK even sent its senior leader GK Mani to call on Karnataka chief minister Siddaramaiah and submitted a memorandum to him seeking his help to save the people of Tamil Nadu from travesty of justice. “Justice is trying to be massacred. Kindly act immediately,” the PMK pleaded in its memorandum to the Karnataka chief minister.
