Former Rajya Sabha MP P Kannan resigned from AIADMK and said: “everything is obvious.” The resignation comes at a time when AIADMK general secretary V K Sasikala was elected as Legislature party leader at a meeting of legislature party meeting in Chennai earlier in the day.
Sasikala will become the third Chief Minister of the state. The name for the AIADMK Legislature Party leader was proposed by O Panneerselvam at a meeting of party MLAs at the party headquarters here. The MLAs unanimously elected her as their leader, enabling her to take over the reins from Panneerselvam.
