Want to clear my conscience: O Panneerselvam says at Jayalalithaa's memorial

O Panneerselvam, who resigned as Tamil Nadu chief minister on Sunday, made a surprise visit to his predecessor J Jayalalithaa’s memorial in Chennai, saying he had gone there to “clear his conscience”.

Speaking to media gathered there, he said he wished to reveal certain truths, adding that he was asked to save the ruling AIADMK party and Tamil Nadu.

Panneerselvam’s move comes amid uncertainty over the swearing in of party  general secretary VK Sasikala as chief minister. It also comes on a day that allegations have grown over the circumstance around Jayalalithaa’s death.
