NEW DELHIl: On a day when the AIADMK general secretary V K Sasikala was convicted in a disproportionate case, the BJP maintained that the Governor of Tamil Nadu should find a solution to the existing stalemate through the test of numbers by ensuring credibility of the exercise.

The BJP national general secretary P Muralidhar Rao said that the attempt of Sasikala to prop up a proxy would not help the party win people’s trust. While the leaders of the AIADMK have been alleging the BJP for interfering in the ongoing political slugfest in the state, Rao stated that Sasikala does not enjoy the same level of public endorsements as had been the case with Jayaalalitha.

"Sasikala has the advantage of being at the top of the party but she does not have the advantage that Jayalalithaa had in the form of popular endorsement of her leadership, which is a very important factor in the existing circumstances in the state. You are not going to win the popular endorsement by thrusting a proxy,” added Rao.

The BJP leader stated that the Supreme Court verdict on Tuesday is a new factor in the state politics, which may affect the outcome of the slugfest between the two factions in the party.

“The Governor has to decide not only on the basis of Numbers, but also credibility in the light of the apex court verdict. He has to convince himself about who is more viable and capable of giving a stable government in the state,” added Rao.
