He justified it as an act to prevent the DMK from gaining popularity in its demand to replace Chief Minister Edappadi K Palaniswami. Jakkaiyan said that he hoped that more of his friends from TTV camp make similar decisions. He also said that he was not forced to change sides. Following a meeting with Assembly Speaker P Dhanapal, Jakkaiyan said that he made his necessary submissions before him and informed him about the letter stating his support to EPS. The legislator added that he had chosen to support EPS and wanted the current government to continue with its tenure.

Though stated to be an interaction, where the legislators put across demands for various constituency related issues, the move assumes significance due to the ongoing battle for supremacy within the party, as MLAs shifting allegiance could spell doom for the EPS government. P Vetrivel, TTV Dinakaran supporter, was also present and when asked about his presence in a meeting chaired by EPS, he said both issues should not be mixed as they were different.
