Shortly after the image was uploaded to Twitter , Walmart tweeted May: "We appreciate you letting us know about this display". About an hour and a half after the tweet was posted , they responded saying the sign was removed from the display.

At a meeting of senior party leaders, a resolution to this effect was adopted. One of the options being discussed is that Palaniswami continues as the Chief Minister and Panneerselvam join him as his deputy with the key portfolios like Home and Public Welfare Department.

It was during his absence that EPS reportedly strengthened his position in the party and emerged as a real threat to Dinakaran.
