As per the case, Sasikala along with J Jayalalitha have conspired to acquire a fortune worth more than 60 Crores illicitly. On December 2017, Jayalalitha died, and O Panneer Selvam, known as the loyalist of Jayalalitha took charge as the Chief Minister.

But O Panneer Selvam refused to hand over the Chief Minister's chair to Sasikala, and he even conducted a press conference in front of Jayalalitha's burial ground and stated that Sasikala is playing dirty politics to get presided as the Chief Minister.

As per close sources, it has been learned that the Governer is not interested in allowing Sasikala to take the oath as the Chief Minister, as the Supreme Court verdict in the corruption case is still pending.

Legal experts have reportedly advised Panneer Selvam to order a special session of the legislature in which a floor test can be conducted to analyze the number of legislative members who support him in the assembly.
