People in Tamil Nadu, where AIADMK general secretary VK Sasikala and chief minister O Panneerselvam are fighting for power, want President’s rule to be imposed and fresh elections conducted in the state, says an online survey.
As many as 54% people said the state should immediately be put President’s rule, according to the survey conducted among 3,528 citizens by citizens’ engagement portal LocalCircles. As many as 34% respondents said there should be an open vote in the assembly and 10% said AIADMK should re-elect their leader internally. Rest of the respondents were not sure about what should be done.
In a second survey, 92% citizens said they see a governance crisis in Tamil Nadu because of AIADMK’s fight. Only 7% said that they did not see any crisis and 1% did not have an opinion in the poll in which 3,665 citizens voted.
The state witnessed a dramatic turn of events on Tuesday night with Panneerselvam revolting against party legislative leader VK Sasikala. Panneerselvam said he was forced to resign from the chief minister post by the Sasikala camp, an allegation that was later denied by the AIADMK general secretary.
