The mud-slinging between acting Chief Minister O Panneerselvam and AIADMK general secretary Sasikala Natarajan has now spilled over to social media. Sasikala had shepherded the 131 MLAs apparently supporting her to an unknown location to keep them from being influenced by Panneerselvam or anyone from the OPS camp. Meanwhile, OPS associates have started tweeting phone numbers of AIADMK legislators asking people and party supporters to call them and pressure them to return to support him.

Hari Prabhakaran, one of the main members of the party’s IT wing, was allegedly promoting OPS’s side on social media since the latter made the revelations about the turn of events leading to his resignation and appointment of Sasikala as legislature party chief. Hari has been sacked from the party as of now.

He had tweeted his support to OPS and urged MLAs and MPs to rally behind him. Hari was sacked after these set of tweets went viral. Many of the tweets had even criticised Sasikala and praised OPS.

Meanwhile, AIADMK leader Madhusudanan has joined the O Panneerselvam camp. Earlier, V. Maitreyan, an AIADMK MP, had also come out in support of OPS. OPS has claimed that he will prove majority in the house and will take back his resignation if required and has also recommended a probe into the death of Jayalalithaa.

In a dramatic move two days ago, OPS had revolted against Sasikala, laying his claim to Jayalalithaa’s legacy and the chief minister’s post. Since then, the party seems to be divided in two camps, possibly leading to a split.
