Amid political uncertainty in Tamil Nadu, Maharashtra governor Ch Vidyasagar Rao, who also holds charge for the southern state, will stay in Mumbai with no indication of when he will travel to Chennai.

“So far, we have no information on whether the governor has any travel plans today for Chennai or Delhi,” a Raj Bhavan official told PTI.

On Tuesday, Raj Bhavan sources had said Rao may leave for Chennai in a day or two.

Political crisis looms large over Tamil Nadu after O Panneerselvam last night dropped a bombshell, saying that he was forced to resign as chief minister to make way for AIADMK general secretary VK Sasikala, who is yet to be sworn-in for the top job.

Panneerselvam broke his silence on the happenings in the party after the death of his late mentor J Jayalalithaa on December 5, saying he was being “insulted” by senior ministers and leaders who sought to “undermine” him after electing him the chief minister.
