First to break news of Sasikala becoming CM
Media reports have suggested that VK Sasikala, former aide of J Jayalalithaa, is all set to take over as Tamil Nadu CM. APN has been the first to break the news on its Twitter handle on January 27.
AIADMK MLAs will attend a crucial meeting on the afternoon of February 5, which is likely to be followed by this announcement. In that case, Sasikala, who was unanimously named general secretary of the party at the AIADMK’s general council meeting in Chennai on December 31, 2016, will replace O Panneerselvam as the chief minister of the state.
