Expelled AIADMK general secretary V K Sasikala in an interview recalled her association with former Chief Minister Jayalalithaa. Speaking about leaving Poise Garden in 2011, Sasikala said that she anticipated it even before it happened.
Sasikala explained that she had received information that a conspiracy was going on to separate her from Jayalalithaa. The former CM wanted to know who was the conspirator. So, Sasikala said that she came out as per the plan.
“There was a big role of mine in reuniting the ‘AIADMK’ which were two factions at that time. I went directly to the late Chief Minister, Janaki Ramachandran and then went and talked to Jayalalithaa. At the time, Janaki felt that she had to enter politics to protect the AIADMK founded by the MGR,” said Sasikala.
“Jayalalithaa loves movies and fight scenes starring MGR. The two of us saw many movies in the estate bungalow, Kodanadu. Our favorite deity is Hanuman,” added Sasikala.
Sasikala announced before the assembly elections that she was moving away from politics. But now, the audios of her talks with the party organizers toward capturing the AIADMK are stirring.
