Earlier, reports suggested that Palaniswami, along with his Cabinet colleagues, will meet All India Anna Dravida Munnetra Kazhagam (AIADMK) general secretary VK Sasikala at the Central Jail in Bengaluru today and take her blessings before assuming charge.

However, Palaniswami told news agency ANI that he has no plans to visit Bengaluru today, rather he will go to the Kuvathur resort to meet the MLAs. The Tamil Nadu Assembly is being convened on February 18 (Saturday) and Palaniswami has to prove his majority on that day.
In a bid to maintain law and order situation and prevent the AIADMK’s factions from crowding, police have intensified security and put up barricades outside the jail complex at Parapanna Agrahara area.
Notably, clashes had broken out on Wednesday between the cadres of the party’s two factions when Sasikala came from Chennai by road. On Thursday, Sasikala watched on TV the swearing-in ceremony of Palaniswami at Raj Bhavan in Chennai.

“Sasikala watched live Palaniswami and 30 lawmakers taking oath as the Chief Minister and Cabinet ministers in the prison’s woman barracks, along with her sister-in-law Elavarasi and other inmates,” a jail official told IANS on the condition of anonymity.

Sasikala, 60, Elavarasi and her nephew VK Sudhakaran returned to the prison on Wednesday and surrendered to resume the four-year term they were sentenced to after being held guilty of corruption in the two-decades-old illegal assets case.
