Fissures widened within the ruling AIADMK after caretaker Chief Minister O Panneerselvam claimed on Tuesday that he was forced to resign from the post to pave the way for party General Secretary VK Sasikala's elevation to the post.

"I don't want to comment on what is happening internally in AIADMK. And Centre and BJP doesn't have any role in it.

"Secondly, the allegations against the Governor too are wrong. He will take the right decision at the right time in line with the Constitution and after seeking opinion of legal experts," he told reporters.

Asked about allegations levelled against him by some of his opponents that BJP was behind him, Pannerselvam today said, "They (his opponent) don't have any strong ground against me. They can't level any allegation against me."
