Subramaniyam Swami supports Sasikala Natarajan in her bid to be the next Tamil Nadu CM
Sasikala Natarajan has received support from BJP's Subramaniyam Swami. Commenting on the tussle for power in All India Anna Dravida Munnetra Kazhagam (AIADMK) between O Panneerselvam and Sasikala Natarajan, Swamy said that according to the constitution, Sasikala has all the rights to be the chief minister of the state.

"Sasikala Natarajan should be sworn-in as chief minister of Tamil Nadu. If delayed it'll be violence against Constitution. President Pranab Mukherjee must intervene. Jayalalithaa is not here today. Sasikala lived with her and has all the rights according to the constitution," Swamy said.

He also termed the revolt by Panneerselvam and his supporters pointless and said that the floor test in the Assembly must decide who possesses the numbers to be the chief minister.

O Panneerselvam addressed the media today at his residence in Chennai and dared Sasikala Natrajan to prove majority. He also said that he will prove his strength in the assembly.

"Amma remained CM for nearly 16 yrs, I happened to become Chief Minister twice, all this was the wish of Amma. I have always followed Amma's path. She wanted me to be CM", Panneerselvam said.

The controversy between the party has generated reactions from other opposition parties as well. The National Congress Party (NCP) on Wednesday also said that since majority of MLAs had elected Sasikala, she could be constitutionally sworn-in as the chief minister.

"As far as Sasikala elevation is concerned, it has become the matter of controversy. Initially it was declared that the majority of the MLAs from Tamil Nadu assembly who were belong to AIADMK have already chosen her the leader of the house and therefore constitutionally she could be sworn-in as the Chief Minister of the state," NCP leader Majeed Memon told ANI.
