2) I will be ready to fight even alone.

3) If people want me to stand for the post of party General Secretary, I am ready to stand against Sasikala and withdraw my resignation.

4) Amma's spirit told me to inform this to the people of the State.

5) They forced me to resign. I wanted to go to Jaya's memorial but they didn't allow me.

6) I told my cabinet members that they shouldn't speak against me openly. They can have differences, but I didn't want any split in the party, I wanted the party to remain united.

7) I was given the CM post but insulted continuously.

8) While I was meeting PM, on the other side, Thambidurai took 50 MPs met the PM.

9) A few days after becoming CM, Health Minister told me 'Chinnamma' should be made General Secretary.
