Late night drama ensued in Tamil Nadu when caretaker CM O Panneerselvam went to Jayalalithaa's memorial and stayed in meditation there for half an hour. This was only the silence before the storm, for when OPS addressed the media thereafter, it was an outright revolt against Sasikala and her takeover of the party.

OPS said that he felt insulted, was compelled to resign from CM's post and that he would withdraw his resignation if the people of Tamil Nadu wanted.

Social media exploded with reactions thereafter, most in support of OPS.
