he legislators of Tamil Nadu’s ruling AIADMK will attend a crucial meeting on Sunday afternoon amid speculations that party general secretary VK Sasikala may replace chief minister O Panneerselvam.
Party sources indicated that a leadership change could not be ruled out, but refrained from making any official statement.
The process will be smooth, he said, though a small section of the party is believed to be against Sasikala’s rise.
Earlier, Rajya Sabha MP Sasikala Pushpa as well as AIADMK leader KC Palaniswamy had complained to the Election Commission that the elevation of Sasikala as the interim general secretary of the party was carried out in an undemocratic manner.
Sources said the poll panel had sent a notice to the party and Sasikala, seeking clarifications.
