Chennai: In a dramatic twist to the almost Shakespearean drama playing out in Tamil Nadu, ‘caretaker’ chief minister O Panneerselvam delivered the sharpest stab yet to the chief ministerial ambitions of ‘Chinnamma’ VK Sasikala when he “revealed” certain truths that were “pricking his conscience”.

Here are the highlights:

1) I am revealing these facts in front of you to make things clear in public. I will continue to struggle.

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.

10) When she was alive, Jayalalithaa called me and said, "Pick someone the people will accept".
