AIADMK meet may discuss change of CM

 With the ruling AIADMK in Tamil Nadu all set to hold its crucial meeting of MLAs on Sunday, political circles were rife with rumours and speculation of party general secretary V K Sasikala being elevated to the post of chief minister.

AIADMK sources did not rule out the possibility. Some party members were also of the view that the meeting, to be chaired by Sasikala, was to ascertain the problems MLAs face in their respective constituencies.

Though there was no official announcement of the meeting and its agenda, it was billed as a show of unity, in the wake of the discontentment expressed by certain sections of the party.

Sasikala’s call for a meeting closely follows the party leadership’s decision to appoint several senior leaders and former ministers to key party posts.  There has been a clamour that Sasikala should follow the earlier practice of both the party general secretary and the chief minister’s post being vested in the same person.
