AIADMK interim general secretary Sasikala Natarajan who spent 30 minutes with Tamil Nadu Governor Vidyasagar Rao on Thursday, staked a claim to form the government. The governor, prior to the meeting had conveyed that there shall be no parading of MLAs at the Raj Bhavan and she can be accompanied only by 10 ministers. All eyes are on the governor today, whose decision would put an end to the ongoing turmoil in Tamil Nadu politics.
The governor has been holding meetings with legal experts to decide on the next course of action. He was handed out a list of supporters backing Sasikala, but has not made any decision. This has even prompted BJP leader Subramanian Swamy to say, “What is he waiting for? She has shown the letter of support.”
