Paneerselvam to Sit In one Day Fast, Demands Probe Into Jaya’s Death
Chennai: O Panneerselvam (OPS), rebel AIADMK MLA, Ex Chief Minister of TN, met President Pranab Mukharjee and demanded independent probe on Jayalalitha’s death.
When OPS was Chief Minister he promised an independent enquiry by a sitting judge on Amma’s death. ‘Why is the current regime not ready for probe?’, questioned Madhusudhanan, chairman of the party presidium.
‘As a mark of protest on this issue, OPS group MLAs will observe one day fast on March 8th from 9 am to 5 pm. I request AIDMK cadre to take part in it,’ Madhusudhanaan added while addressing media.
In a memorandum submitted to President, the AIADMK rebels requested him to institute a judicial enquiry or independent probe. It is up to President Pranab Mukherjee to take a decision in this regard, the leaders said.
