Chennai, Dec 5 (BPNS)

In a major shocker to the deposed AIADMK leader and former Chief Minister, O. Panneerselvam, his close aide and former MLA , Kovai Selvaraj quit the party. Sources in the AIADMK told BPNS that the former MLA took the extreme decision as he was removed from the post of Coimbatore Urban district secretary of the party.

While he is close to OPS, in the past two months there has apparently been a communication gap between the two leaders, and this is considered one reason for the outspoken leader to quit the party.

He has also made serious allegations on the death of former Chief Minister and AIADMK leader, J. Jayalalithaa, and said that he was shocked on reading the Justice Arumughaswamy commission report on the death of the former Chief Minister. He said that the report had mentioned that Jayalalithaa’s life could have been saved had she been taken abroad for treatment and that all minister including OPS who was a cabinet minister then was responsible for this.

Sources close to the former legislator told BPNS that Kovai Selvaraj is likely to join DMK in the days to come and discussions have taken place in this ground. However, the former MLA has yet to announce his decision regarding him joining the DMK.
