After alleging on Tuesday night that he was forced to resign as Chief Minister, O. Panneerselvam spoke to journalists on Wednesday. He was flanked by Kavundampalayam MLA V.C. Aaru kutty and Rajya Sabha member Maitreyan. 

 

Here are highlights of his speech:

 

>> I will withdraw my resignation, if given an opportunity to do so.

>> MLAs will prove their support in the Assembly.

>> There has been no instance where I have betrayed the party.

>> I have been following J ayalalithaa' s footsteps.

>> Judicial inquiry will be ordered into Jayalalithaa's death

>> As per party bylaws, party general secretary can be elected only by cadres through ballots. Soon a general body should be convened to elect a permanent general secretary.

>> I will accept Deepa Jayakumar's ( Jayalalithaa's niece) support, if offered. 

>> I will meet Governor soon and I will meet the people in every nook and corner. 

>> My appeal to MLAs is that they should take decision taking into account people's feelings in their constituencies.
