Top AIADMK leader moves to the camp of Panneerselvam :- On Thursday, O Panneerselvam camp received a major boost with the AIADMK Presidium Chairman E Madusudanan switching over to the aide of the Chief Minister. Madusudanan said that he wanted to safeguard the party.
Madusudanan said that to protect AIADMK, everybody should join hands with OPS (Panneerselvam). He further added that he did not want the party to get into the hands of a single family.
Amid a celebratory mood in the rival camp, he was flanked by Panneerselvam and party Rajya Sabha MP Dr V Maithreyan.
A Jubilant Pannerselvam said that we welcome him with gratitude and hailed Madusudanan as a tall leader who had worked for the party since the founding days of AIADMK alongside its founder MG Ramachandran.
Panneerselvam slammed Sasikala and said that she acted as a traitor enacting dramas who had betrayed late Jayalalithaa.
Panneerselvam said that it was Sasikala who had said in 2011 that she did not aspire for any post or position while pleading with Jayalalithaa to reinduct her in the AIADMK after being expelled from the party.
Madusudanan along with other top functionaries like KA Sengottaiyan had requested Sasikala to take over the reins of the party, soon after the death of Jayalalithaa in the month of December last year.
