But with the tide going in favour of Panneerselvam at the ground level, the legislatures will also be forced to support Panneerselvam, he said.

As a result the MLAs, I have imprisoned are joining OPS (O Panneerselvam) one by one. They have been detained. Though the legislatures will try to play it safe since it only less than one year they had contested won elections.
