Acting Tamil Nadu Chief Minister O Panneerselvam on Thursday said the Poes Garden residence of the late J Jayalalithaa will be converted into a memorial.

He made the comment while welcoming the support of AIADMK’s Presidium Chairman E Madhusudanan, who had earlier pressed party General Secretary VK Sasikala to lead the party.

Speaking to the media at his residence, Panneerselvam said: “Jayalalithaa’s Poes Garden residence will be converted into a memorial.”

Sasikala, a long-time confidante of Jayalalithaa who died in December, now resides at the house.

Paneerselvam welcomed to his camp Madhusudanan, who said his conscience told him to join hands with Panneerselvam.
