Edapaddi Palanisamy Swearing Ceremony Likely To Be Today Evening
Tamil Nadu politics are unstable for last few months. Chief Minister O Pannerselvam had been compelled to resign from the post by Sasikala and her supporters on Feb 5th. Following that she is nominated by her supporting MLAs to the CM post. But Governor was silent and waiting for verdict of SC on Sasikala’s dis-appropriating assets case.
Supreme Court had given verdict on Feb 14th. Sasikala convicted for the case and sentenced 4years of imprisonment.
Meantime several Legislators joined O Pannerselvam and lend their supports. Sasikala supporters Edappadi Palanisamy, Dinakaran, Sengottaiyan, Thangamani, Velumani and Dindugal Srinivasan meet Governor today.
Governor had called CM candidate Edapaddi Palanisamy to form government in Tamil Nadu. The swearing ceremony will be held Raj Bhavan at 5 pm. He has to prove his majority within 15 days.
Here is the Raj Bhavan press release.
