Sasikala to tour all districts of Tamil Nadu after lifting of lockdown

Chennai, July 2(BPNS)

The former interim general secretary of AIADMK, V.K.Sasikala who was expelled from the party has announced that she would tour all districts of the state after the lifting of the lockdown.The state is expected to provide more relaxations after July 5 and the estranged AIADMK leader is planning to tour the state once the relaxations come into effect.

Sasikala in a telephonic chat with AIADMK leaders and former MLA’s of Tamil Nadu assembly,  S. Kamaraj and N.G.Parthiban said that she would commence her state tour after visiting the mausoleum of former Chief Minister late J. Jayalalithaa.

The former aide of Jayalalithaa said that she would take all sections of the AIADMK with her and said that the party needs a total makeover to be in the reckoning in the state.

She also said that she was instrumental in bringing the Janaki Ramachandran faction and the Jayalalithaa faction in the AIADMK together after the passing away of the party founder, M.G. Ramachandran( MGR). She said that the present situation is comparatively much easier and added that as a seasoned politician she could not sit idle at home once the party is facing turbulence.

It may be noted that Sasikala is reaching out to AIADMK lower level and mid-level functionaries ever since the election results have come and she has even floated a war room at her T Nagar residence to communicate with the AIADMK functionaries across the state.  Her sister in-law Ilavarasi and her trusted lieutenant Karthikeyan are coordinating her telephone calls and contacts with the AIADMK leaders.

Meanwhile AIADMK leader and former minister C.Ve. Shanmugham while speaking to BPNS said, “Sasikala is not a force and AIADMK does not have anything to do with her. She is already out of the party and she does not have any clout in the party. It is her dream and we won’t allow her back here, she is a persona non-granta in AIADMK.”
