Amma 'Paneer Masala'!

For the last two days, the entire cabinet of Tamil Nadu state government, led by chief minister O Panneerselvam, were waiting patiently at AIADMK General Secretary and "Amma”’s house at the posh Poes Gardens in Chennai, desperately seeking to meet her personally and greet her. After two days of grueling wait, finally they were lucky to get Amma’s audience. Hold on here! not her but her voice through intercom.

Soon after the Karnataka High Court acquittal, Panneerselvam tried to meet her in Bengaluru itself, but he was not granted permission. When she reached her house in Poes Gardens, leading a team of 20 Cabinet ministers he went to meet Amma, but was told she would not meet them.

This is not the first time that Amma refused to meet Panneerselvam and other cabinet ministers. Last year, when Panneerselvam wanted to meet her when she was lodged in the jail, she did not allow him. The reason is simple. Though, he was her die-hard fan, follower and loyalist, Amma was upset with him as she came to know that he celebrated his installation as chief minister of TN when Amma was forced to quit following the court verdict. But this time around, why did she refuse to meet the CM and his cabinet colleagues? Unconfirmed reports say that her astrologer advised her not meet them till May 16. The Astrologer also told her to take oath as CM on May 17!
