All India Anna Dravida Munnetra Kazhagam (AIADMK) MLA from South Madurai, Saravanan and Member of Parliament from Madurai, R Gopalakrishnan extended their support to O Panneerselvam on Sunday.

Many other prominent members of the party have come out in support of Tamil Nadu CM O Panneerselvam in the past few days.

Big names who have shifted their support to the OPS camp are Tirupur MP V Sathyabama and Tiruvannamalai MP R Vanaroja.

Some others reported to have extended their support to the caretaker CM are R Sarathkumar along with Saravana.

Further bolstering the TN CM’s camp, a faction of Manithaneya Makkal Katchi (MMK) led by Tamim Ansari has pledged its support as well but what is seen as the biggest setback to Sasikala was C Ponnaiyan confirming his allegiance to OPS.

Sasikala has responded to the ongoing political turmoil by saying, “The true members of Amma are with me. Also, I don’t want the party to suffer because of me.”

Meanwhile, actor and choreographer Raghava Lawrence has also extended support to O Panneerselvam.
