The prospects of AIADMK general secretary VK Sasikala’s immediate swearing-in as Tamil Nadu Chief Minister appeared remote on Monday night with Governor C Vidyasagar Rao headed for Mumbai from New Delhi and not to Chennai.

The fast-paced developments came on a day the state government organised a press conference by a team of medical experts that had treated the late CM J Jayalalithaa to dispel rumours surrounding her death. Soon after this, reports came in that the AIADMK was busy sprucing up the Madras University centenary hall for Sasikala’s swearing-in.

While the timing of all this raised eyebrows, there were also the legal challenges confronting the Sasikala succession plan.

Amid reports that governor Rao was seeking legal advice before administering the oath of office to Sasikala, Maharashtra Raj Bhavan sources said he was arriving in Mumbai on Monday night.

AIADMK spokesperson CR Saraswathi told Hindustan Times that “we have not yet heard from the governor about swearing in. The party had submitted the documents to the governor and is yet to get time from him”. All that has appeared in media about swearing in Tuesday morning is all speculation, she added.
