The same day DMK President MK Stalin and AMMK Dy General Secretary TTV Dhinakaran demanded the CM’s resignation. Other parties too echoed similar views.Late Friday evening AIADMK Organisation Secretary, C Ponnaiyan met the media and said that the allegations against the TN CM are false and there will be an appeal against the CBI probe based on false allegations.

In a tweet on Saturday, DMK President MK Stalin queried what better proof is required, about who is controlling the DVAC, that the AIADMK party Organisation Secretary is informing through the media that DVAC will appeal the against the High Court order.

On its part the DMK has filed a caveat in the Supreme Court stating that no ex-parte order should be given if the Govt. of Tamil Nadu challenges the Madras High Court order.
