The political situation in Tamil Nadu continues to evolve with Attorney General Mukul Rohatgi on Monday suggesting that the TN Governor Vidyasagar Rao should hold a composite floor test in the Assembly. Meanwhile, the disproportionate assets case has been listed for hearing in the Supreme Court on Tuesday at 10:30 am and depending on the verdict in this case, the Governor can be expected to take his next course of action.

Earlier in the day, claiming that OPS and a few others were conspiring against the AIADMK government right after Jayalalithaa's death, Sasikala said that she let them take oath on the very night that Amma died in order to save the party and the government. 

"If OPS was not friendly with DMK in the Assembly, I would have let him be CM. But he's pushed us into taking action," Sasikala said.

Recalling the sequence of events following MGR's death, Sasikala drew a parallel between the situation she faces today and the situation Jayalalithaa faced back then.

Here are the live updates of the political situation in Tamil Nadu as they unfold.
