Sasikala to visit Jaya memorial, start State-wide tour


Chennai: Expelled AIADMK supremo V K Sasikala, who is eyeing a political comeback, is planning a State-wide tour to meet her supporters.

Before that, she would visit the memorial of former Chief Minister J Jayalalithaa. In her latest conversation with a supporter, Sasikala is heard saying, “Yes, they say the lockdown continues until July 5… So will see until then, post that will see the situation, and then go visit Amma memorial at Marina and then start visiting you all.”

Multiple conversations of Sasikala have surfaced in the last few weeks in which she is heard promising a fresh bid to reclaim AIADMK post its debacle in the Assembly election.
However, the AIADMK leadership has warned party cadres against having any connection with her.

Sasikala recently said that she did not favour any move to disqualify O Panneerselvam and 10 other rebel legislators from the Assembly in February 2017.

Meanwhile, seeking to play down Sasikala’s purported interaction with party workers, AIADMK co-coordinator K Palaniswami said her telephonic conversations will not impact the 1.5 crore cadre-based organisation.
