The four-member legislature wing of the opposition AIADMK in Puducherry today urged Sasikala, long time aide of former Chief Minister Jayalalithaa, to take over the leadership of the party. “She is most competent and possesses all the merits and qualities of being the General Secretary of the AIADMK and this would also be in keeping with the plea of the party cadres,” A Anbalagan, who chaired the legislature party meeting, told reporters.

Anbalagan said they had earlier met ‘Chinnamma'(as Sasikala is referred to by party workers) at Chennai and personally urged her to take over the leadership of the party. He said ‘Chinnamma’ had been “a most trusted sister and caring mother of the former Chief Minister and had stood by her side at all times.”

It was therefore fitting and most appropriate that ‘Chinnamma’ became the General Secretary of the party to guide it, he said. The meeting through a resolution made an appeal to ‘Chinnamma’ to take over the reins of the party leadership, he added. The other legislators, who participated in the meeting, were: A Baskar, K A U Asanna and Vayyapuri Manikandam.
