AIADMK general secretary Sasikala is constantly in touch with her party cadre despite being inside the jail. She has written a letter to her party asking them to celebrate late Tamil Nadu chief minister J Jayalalithaa’s birth anniversary on February 24. Sasikala, lodged in Bengaluru’s Parapanna Agrahara Central Jail, in her letter, has stated that a grand celebration conducting public welfare events across the state should take place.
According to a report in India Today, Sasikala also slammed rebel party leader O Panneerselvam for ‘betraying the legacy of Jayalalithaa and MGR’. “We have defeated the treacherous acts and betrayal of those who tried to swindle Jayalalithaa’s hard work and MGR’s legacy. We have safeguarded Amma’s governance while celebrating MGR’s centenary year,” she stated.
Sasikala has requested her party cadre to involve themselves in conducting a lot of public welfare events. Sasikala’s statement was released after her aide and AIADMK Deputy General Secretary TTV Dhinakaran met her at the Bengaluru jail. Dinakaran discussed the birth anniversary of Jayalalithaa with Sasikala. Along with Dinakaran, Tamil Nadu cabinet ministers Sengottaiyan and Sellur Raja also met Sasikala. She has given Sengottaiyan the responsibility to lead Jayalalithaa’s 69th birth anniversary celebration on February 24.
