The political crisis in Tamil Nadu is likely to conclude with the Governor of the state scheduled to meet MLAs of the AIADMK at Chennai on Thursday.

After keeping away from the state for three days since the crisis broke out, Governor Vidyasagar Rao will visit Chennai on Thursday to put an end to the crisis.


Sasikala Natarajan, who was to visit Delhi and meet with the President, has cancelled her plans after the Governor said that he would be visiting the state.

On Thursday, Rao is scheduled to meet with MLAs of the AIADMK. The meeting is likely to take place at 2.30 pm. Rao is also expected to meet with Panneerselvam on Thursday.

Meanwhile, O Panneerselvam has ascertained that he is the treasurer of the party. He has written to banks that no transactions relating to the party shall take place without his consent. It may be recalled after his open revolt, OPS had been removed as treasurer of the party.

OPS, however, maintained that he is still the treasurer of the party and dashed off a letter to the banks.

Panneerselvam who is the care-taker CM of TN said that the ball is now in the court of the Governor. The Governor will do what he has to do and he is no one to advise him. He said that all he was trying to do was echo Jayalalithaa's involvement with the poor section of the society.

Personally, I think there was a conspiracy, but to clear the confusion regarding her death, I had sought for an inquiry, he also said.
