As the race for the Tamil Nadu government unfolds, MLAs of the AIADMK are faced with the crucial decision of choosing between the two camps - O Panneerselvam and VK Sasikala.
The first MLA to join the OPS fold was Manickam of Solavandan constituency. Few other MLAs then followed. But the crossing over of Mafoi K Pandiarajan from the Sasikala camp to the other side has given an impetus to the OPS movement.
Meanwhile, Sasikala is keeping a close watch on all the other MLAs, ensuring that no one moves out. WIth KA Sengottaiyan and Edapadi Palanisamy as her Generals, and other MPs and family to help, she is trying hard to keep the flock together.
On this page, we give you a live count on the number of MLAs and MPs on each side, as the moves happen. (For regular, timely updates on political developments in Tamil Nadu, follow the Live Blog here.)
