AIADMK meeting in Chennai has been finished, AIADMK leaders decided Mr. O. Panneerselvam will be the next Chief minister for Tamil Nadu State.
O. Panneerselvam, is one of the major leader in the AIADMK, he is also known as right hand of J.Jayalalitha. After a 4 years prison court verdict for J.Jayalalita she resigned from the chief minister post of Tamil Nadu, and since yesterday, it was said that Mr. O. Panneerselvam would take on the responsibility of AIADMK supremo and will be next Chief Minister of Tamil Nadu Assembly.
O. Panneerselvam had worked closely with J.Jayalalitha and also became interim chief minister for 6 months in 2001 when Jayalalitha had to resign from the post due to Tansi Land case in 2001. He is considered as most loyal person of Jayalalitha. He was working in Finance and Public work since 2011 when J.Jayalalitha came back in power.
Note, that J.Jaylalitha would not be able to become CM or MLA in near future even if she come back after 4 years of prison. According to landmark law of supreme court back in 2013 if any one found guilty and convicted for 3+ years he/she cannot serve as Chief minister or MLA for next 10 years in any state, and shall immediately leave his or her position.
Panneerselvam has also meet state Governor K. Rosaiah at 6 pm on Sunday for chief minister post. This would be interesting to see how Mr. O. Panneerselvam will manage the Tamil Nadu Assembly.
