Many film personalities have offered their support to chief minister O Panneerselvam, who has raised a banner of revolt against AIADMK general secretary V K Sasikala.
The fresh list includes director Bala, actors Ramarajan, Thiyagu, Arunpandian and Manobala.
Ramarajan said though Panneerselvam is fondly called “OPS”, it also refers to “Oyvillamal Poruppaga Sevai Seibavar” (a person who tirelessly works for the welfare of people).
Ramarajan who is known to be a staunch loyalist of late CM Jayalalitha and Thiyagu who was formerly with DMK and later switched loyalties to AIADMK have visited the house of OPS in Greenways Road, Chennai and offered their support to him.
“A situation has come wherein nothing will happen in politics without the people’s knowledge,” Ramarajan said, amid thunderous applause from thousands of supporters, who have thronged the residence of OPS to express their support and solidarity.
Panneerselvam also enjoys the support of six AIADMK MLAs, including himself.
