Pressure mounts on Deepa as stage set for Sashikala to sworn in on 12th
After becoming general secretary of AIADMK post Jaya's death, Sashikala is fast making moves to achieve her goal. As a part of the plan, she is reportedly going to sworn in as the new CM on the eve of Pongal a very sacred period for Tamilians. The whole mechanism in the state is working towards this. though Paneer Selvam is the temporary chief minister, he is reportedly acting at the behest of Chinnamma. Also, there has been a demand from her followers to make her CM.
Lok Sabha deputy speaker Tambi Dorai is hell bent on making Sashikala chief minister and is leaving no stone unturned to do this. if reports are to be believed, he along with ministers RP Uday Kumar, Sepur Ramachandran, Kadambur Raja will meet Sasikala and request her to take the post and the date is set for 12th of this month.
Meanwhile, demand from detractors of Sashikala within the party is increasing by the day for Deepa to foray into active politics. The lower segments of cadre in the party are very dissatisfied with Sashikala becoming chief minister and are seen frequenting Deepa's residence to persuade her. Support for her is on the rise.
As many party workers feel that only Deepa can counter Sashikala made Deepa the hottest topic in the state. Her residence in T Nagar is seen flooded with her supporters and she is also seen interacting with all of them with a rejuvenated smile.
