Elangovan opined that hardcore and loyal AIADMK workers and people of Tamil Nadu would not accept Sasikala as Chief Minister. Only those holding some posts in the party and senior party leaders wanted her in that post, he said.
He said the AIADMK would lose badly in the coming civic polls and added that the DMK-Congress alliance would continue for that election.
