The supporters of V.K Sasikala are gathering outside her residence and demanding her to reconsider her decision of quitting politics. Yesterday the politician in a public setting announced that she will be quitting politics ahead of the Tamil Nadu elections, she also added that she prays for the success of the AIADMK in the upcoming state elections.
From the looks of it, it seems that Dhinakaran knew about Sasikala’s withdrawal. He has been in touch with her ever since she returned from jail. He reportedly also tried to convince Sasikala to not take this decision but she went ahead and quit anyway. The Tamil Nadu election has now become a battle between AIADMK and DMK. In a letter released Wednesday night Sasikala – a confidante of former Chief Minister J Jayalalithaa – wrote: “I have never been after power or position even when Jaya was alive. Won’t do that after she is dead. I am staying away from politics to ensure continuation of AIADMK’s ‘golden rule’ in Tamil Nadu.” “I will pray to God and my sister (Jayalalithaa) for AIADMK’s victory (and) urge supporters of AIADMK to work together and defeat the DMK (the primary opposition). I urge the party cadre to work to keep her legacy going,” she added.
Last week she said, “as our amma (Jayalalithaa) wished”, AIADMK and AMMK should contest the election together.
