This is an Attempt to Divide the Party: Sasikala

On Saturday night, when asked if she will resort to legal remedies, Sasikala said that it’s time to “wait and watch”.

The AIADMK also tweeted that they have been waiting patiently so far for a response from the Governor.

All party MLAs are fine and happy. We were waiting patiently for a reply from the Governor. Now, we will take the required measures. From tomorrow (Sunday), we will begin a new kind of protest. These delaying tactics are an attempt to create divisions in the party. Please wait and watch.
