Sasikala unveils plaque naming her AIADMK GS

Chennai, Oct 17: A day after visiting the memorial of late party chief J Jayalalithaa, expelled AIADMK leader VK Sasikala Sunday visited the MGR Memorial in Chennai, hoisted the party flag and unveiled a plaque identifying herself as the General Secretary of the party. Speaking after the event, Sasikala was quoted by news agency ANI as saying that it was now time to be united for the “sake of party and welfare of people”.
Responding to Sasikala unveiling a plaque naming her as the general secretary of the party, senior AIADMK leader and former minister D Jayakumar said that she had no right to hoist the AIADMK flag or use the party name and claim herself as general secretary. “If Sasikala claims herself as general secretary of AIADMK then it’s against the court’s order,” he was quoted as saying by ANI.
Earlier in the day, Sasikala also visited MGR’s residence at Ramapuram and paid floral tributes to his statue and offered floral tribute to former CM Janaki Ramachandran.
On Saturday, she visited the memorial of late party chief Jayalalithaa for the first time since her release from jail in Bengaluru in February this year. In what can be seen as an indication of her willingness to return to politics, Sasikala said that she told the former CM at her memorial everything that had transpired within the party so far, “and assured her of a better future for the party”.
