Plea filed in Supreme Court against Sasikala taking over as Tamil Nadu

New Delhi: In what can shatter the dreams of AIADMK supremo VK Sasikala, a plea was on Monday filed in the Supreme Court, stating that she shouldn’t be the next Tamil Nadu Chief Minister.
The plea was filed a day after Sasikala, shadow of J Jayalalithaa for nearly three decades, was elected as legislature party leader by AIADMK MLAs.

The legislators unanimously chose Sasikala, who is not a member of the Assembly, for the top post.

The 62-year-old lost no time in saying that outgoing Chief Minister O Panneerselvam himself wanted her to head the government.

When Jayalalithaa was at the helm, Sasikala was considered to yield a huge clout behind the scenes. After taking charge of the party, she had pledged to take forward the legacy of the former CM.

Ever since Jayalalithaa’s death, there had been a clamour that Sasikala should follow the earlier practice of both the party general secretary and the CM’s post being vested with the same person.

When she addressed the party legislators yesterday, Sasikala was clad in the signature green sari and blouse emulating the late Jayalalithaa.
