Sasikala’s sensational announcement: I am quitting politics


Sasikala, aide of the late former Tamil Nadu CM Jayalalithaa made a sensational statement today and announced that she is quitting politics. Details as below.

Sasikala has been with Jayalalitha until her death. She got imprisonment because of the scams she was involved in along with Jayalalitha. There were lot of unanswered questions about the mysterious death of Jayalalith and one section of people suspected her role in the events leading to and aftermath of the death of AMMA. As she served improvement in criminal case for more than 2 years, as per the rules she is not allowed to participate in elections for next 6 years. So everyone was waiting to see whom she will support in the next elections. But in an unexpected and quick development she announced quitting politics.

While announcing her quitting from politics and public life, she called on the Anna DMK activists to fight unitedly and defeat the DMK party, the arch rival of AIADMK. She released a statement in which she said. ‘I was never in power. Neither when Jayalalithaa was alive nor after her death. I’m leaving politics. But I am praying for her party to win and the legacy to continue. All AIADMK supporters must work together to defeat our main opposition DMK. I want the party cadre to work to carry forward Jayalalithaa’s legacy. ”

It is very surprising to see her leaving the politics at the crucial moment, given the fact that she fought for party symbol as well as position in the party earlier. We need to wait and see whether she is bidding adieu forever or will comeback to takeover the party in future.

On the merger road, AIADMK sacks Dinakaran


Tamil Nadu’s ruling AIADMK on Thursday dumped its Deputy General Secretary T.T.V. Dinakaran, nephew of the jailed General Secretary V.K. Sasikala, in a move aimed at placating the rival faction ahead of a possible merger between the two groups.

The AIADMK decision was announced after a nearly one-hour meeting at the party office attended by Chief Minister K. Palaniswami and some 30 ministers and party leaders.

While there was no immediate reaction from the rival faction led by former Chief Minister O. Panneerselvam, a furious Dinakaran hit back.

Dinakaran — who was made the Deputy General Secretary by Sasikala before she was jailed for corruption — and his small band of supporters refused to accept the decision.

A resolution passed at the AIADMK meeting declared Dinakaran’s appointment as “improper, unacceptable and invalid”, clearing the decks for a possible unification of the two factions.

An AIADMK statement said Sasikala’s appointment itself was under scrutiny of the Election Commission, which was examining the issues raised by Panneerselvam who had challenged her leadership.

The AIADMK used to refer to Sasikala until recently as “Chinnamma”. The Thursday statement called her “Respectable Mrs V.K. Sasikala” – a clear sign of her weakening hold in a party she tried to take over after the death in December of then Chief Minister J. Jayalalithaa.

The two factions will have to unite if they need to get back the party’s popular “two leaves” election symbol that has been frozen by the Election Commission.

Minus the frozen symbol, AIADMK leaders admit they will have problems taking on the DMK in the upcoming local body polls.

The AIADMK meeting also nullified all the appointments of office bearers and other decisions made by Dinakaran.

The Election Commission had earlier rejected a letter written by him in his capacity as Deputy General Secretary.

According to AIADMK sources, Chief Minister Palaniswami and Panneerselvam are travelling to Delhi on Thursday to take part in the swearing in ceremony of Vice President M. Venkaiah Naidu and may meet Prime Minister Narendra Modi.

The sources say that the Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) has been nudging the two factions to unite — and also join the BJP-led National Democratic Alliance formally.

If a merger takes place, Palaniswami will remain the Chief Minister while Panneerselvam could become the General Secretary in place of Sasikala. The Panneerselvam faction insists on Sasikala’s ouster for a merger to take place.

Meanwhile, security has been tightened at the AIADMK headquarters here to foil the possibility of Dinakaran and his supporters trying to take control over it.

An MLA close to Dinakaran, Vetrivel, who attended the AIADMK meeting, challenged the decision to dump Dinakaran.

“Sasikala and Dinakaran cannot be removed from the party,” he said. “Nobody can remove the two leaders from their party posts.”

Delhi Police books AIADMK’s Dinakaran in bribery case

Delhi Police on Monday booked AIADMK Deputy General Secretary and V.K. Sasikala’s nephew T.T.V. Dinakaran on charges of bribery, an officer said.

Dinakaran has been accused of attempting to bribe Election Commission officials to get the party’s ‘two leaves’ symbol.

Police said his close aide Sukesh Chandrasekar was arrested on Sunday night from a south Delhi hotel with Rs 1.3 crore which he was to give the poll officials as a bribe in exchange for the symbol that was suspended a couple of weeks ago.

“Dinakaran has been booked for criminal conspiracy, personating a public servant and corruption after Chandrasekar disclosed his name during a late night police raid at the hotel where he was staying,” the senior police officer said.

The police had raided the hotel following a tip-off, the officer added.

Reacting to the development Dinakaran told reporters in Chennai: “I do not know anybody by the name Sukesh Chandrasekar.”

“Somebody is scheming to destroy the AIADMK,” Dinakaran added.

“I will meet the allegation legally. If I am summoned by Delhi Police I will meet it legally,” Dinakaran said.

Dinakaran also added that he will be meeting Sasikala, his aunt and also AIADMK’s General Secretary in the Bangalore jail and discuss various issues.

The AIADMK has been cleaved into two camps since December 2016, when its leader and late Tamil Nadu Chief Minister J. Jayalalithaa died.

Her closest aide, Sasikala, was named the new party chief but was jailed within weeks after the Supreme Court found her guilty of corruption.
