But, if acquitted as ordered by the High Court, then there is no impediment for Sasikala to become the Chief Minister. The Governor will have no alternative but to invite her to form the government.
Earlier in the day, amidst ongoing turmoil in the the Tamil Nadu politics, Attorney General Mukul Rohatgi has advised the Tamil Nadu governor to hold composite floor test in the Assembly.
