AIADMK expels 17 leaders for having spoken to VK Sasikala

Chennai, June 14(BPNS)

The AIADMK  party meeting held at the party headquarters here expelled 17 leaders of the party including party spokesman, V Pugazhendi for having directly contacted the former interim general secretary, VK Sasikala. Former Minister,M Anandan and former Member of Parliament, Chinnaswamy was the other senior leaders who were expelled from the party. Most of the expelled leaders are said to have spoken to VK Sasikala.

The party meeting also passed a resolution against the former Interim general secretary of the party, VK Sasikala deploring her for “reaching out” to certain party leaders. The resolution also accused her of trying to capture the party and enacting drama by speaking to certain leaders and then selectively leaking the records of the speech.

It may be noted that the former interim general secretary of the AIADMK, VK Sasikala had tried to enter Tamil Nadu politics with a bang after she was released from Bangalore Central prison after serving four years imprisonment in a case related to disproportionate wealth.

She had arrived in Tamil Nadu on February 7, 2021, with a convoy of 1000 vehicles from Bangalore to Tamil Nadu and had received huge receptions across the route taking a full day for a 350 km drive- generally covered in 6 to 7 hours.

After a few days of intervening in state politics, suddenly  Sasikala announced that she was withdrawing from active politics much to the surprise of political observers and party sympathizers.

However after the assembly election results came and AIADMK lost the polls, Sasikala has started resuming her meddling with the party and had selectively leaked her telephonic conversation with several senior, middle and lower-level leaders and cadres of the AIADMK across the state. She has publicly announced through these chats that she was very much in the reckoning for active politics.

AIAMDK leaders Edappadi K Palaniswami and O Panneerselvam had openly denounced her statements and had strongly warned party leaders and cadres that if there was any truck with her they would be expelled from the party.
