AIADMK Spokesperson C. Ponnaiyan on Thursday said about Sasikala that she is the most important personality to hold such office and to enable her to get elected as next general secretary of the party, certain by-laws of the party would be relaxed. He also said that Sasikala had been living as the conscience of J. Jayalalithaa for a long time and she would be elected as general secretary of the party cadre unanimously.
During a press briefing he spent most of the time praising VK Sasikala who has been expected to become the new general secretary of AIADMK and successor of late Jayalalithaa. She had always stayed close to Late CM of Tamil Nadu although her relationship with Jayalalithaa has been through several ups and down. Sometime she was too close with Sasikala and her husband, and sometime she maintained distance from her. In the party, Sasikala is viewed as next kin to Jayalalithaa and it is almost sure that she will be accorded the post of next General Secretary of the Party.
He also added that opposition parties are trying to unleash canards against new expected general secretary, i.e. VK Sasikala with a view to destabilise the AIADMK and such rumours should not be given importance.
