Sasikala to start meeting AIADMK party functionaries from tomorrow

Newly-appointed AIADMK general secretary VK Sasikala on Monday said that she would meet functionaries at the party headquarters from January 4 to 9.

In a party press release signed by her, the first after taking charge on Saturday, Sasikala said, "I have taken charge as AIADMK general secretary with the blessings of 'idhaya theivam puratchi thalaivi amma' (the god residing in my heart, revolutionary leader Amma)."


Sasikala would hold meetings with district town and village-level functionaries, constituency-wise general council members, district-wise MPs and MLAs and district heads of the various party wings, The Times of India reported.

She directed all functionaries to attend the meeting "without fail".

Starting with Chennai and Tiruvallur districts on January 4, she will hold meetings daily until January 9, except on January 5.

Meanwhile, the clamour seeking her to become the Tamil Nadu Chief Minister is getting louder, as senior leader and Lok Sabha deputy speaker M Thambidurai on Monday appealed her to head the government.

State revenue minister RB Udayakumar even offered to resign from his Thirumangalam constituency in Madurai to enable her to contest from the Thevar-dominated district. Sasikala belongs to the Thevar community.
