Sasikala vs Sasikala: Sasikala Natarajan not fit to be AIADMK chief, says Sasikala Pushpa
Seeks judicial inquiry into death of Jayalalithaa. But Madras HC issues notice to AIADMK and Sasikala
Expelled Anna Dravida Munnetra Kazhagam (AIADMK) leader Sasikala Pushpa and her husband moved the Madras High Court on Friday seeking to maintain status quo in the AIADMK against electing V.K. Sasikala as the general secretary of the party.
The Madras High Court has ordered notices to the AIADMK and V.K. Sasikala. The court refused to pass any interim order after hearing hour-long arguments, on the locus standi of the MP and her husband to seek such relief.
“It would too wrong to nominate Sasikala Natrjan as the general secretary of the party. Because nowhere madam (J. Jayalalithaa) has mentioned her name. She has not even given her a councillor or an MLA seat. It shows that political life is not fit for her. She was earlier expelled by Amma for conspiring against her and trying to kill her,” Pushpa told ANI.
“There is a rule in Class-30 sub clause-5 that a person being a primary member for five consecutive years can contest the elections. However, if this is implied, then, Sasikala is not fit to be the general secretary,” added Pushpa, citing a bye-law of the AIADMK.
Pushpa also said it would be wrong to nominate Sasikala Natrajan as the general secretary since she was expelled by Jayalalithaa for conspiring against her. She also demanded a judicial inquiry into Jayalalithaa's death.
