Another MLA joins Panneerselvam's camp

Another MLA joins Panneerselvam's camp
Veteran AIADMK legislator Semmalai today extended support to O Panneerselvam, giving a boost to the chief minister's camp. Semmalai, the MLA from Mettur and a former Minister, arrived at the CM's Greenways Road residence and extended his support to Panneerselvam, sources in his camp said.

With the arrival of Semmalai, the number of MLAs in the Panneerselvam camp rose to nine, including the Chief Minister. On February 5, AIADMK General Secretary VK Sasikala was elected as the Legislature Party Leader.

However, two days later, Panneerselvam had raised a banner of revolt against her, alleging he was forced to step down for her. Three-time MLA from Mettupalayam in Coimbatore district, OK Chinnaraja, also extended support to the Chief Minister.

"OK Chinnaraj, MLA from Mettuppalayam (three-time MLA) declares support to #OPS Annan (brother)! Trickle turns into torrent," School Education Minister K Pandiarajan, a supporter of Panneerselvam, said in a tweet.
