Notably, Sasikala will lead the party until a new general secretary is elected, the party said in one of the 14 resolutions adopted at a meeting.
The ruling party of the Tamil Nadu has demanded Jayalaithaa’s birthday as the National Farmers Day and has demanded that the former leader should be conferred with Magsaysay Award and Nobel Prize for World Peace.
According to a report, general meeting was just a formality since senior leaders of the parry had openly announced on Wednesday that Sasikala will be general secretary of the party.
Party’s spokesperson in a statement has said that Sasikala has a capacity to safeguard the party since she was with Amma for 30 years.
Notably, Sasikala was not present in the meeting either. According to a leading daily VK Sasikala was advised by the astrologer to take up the new responsibility on January 2 or 3.
Notably, this was the first general meeting of party after the death of Jayalaitha. Amma had passed away last month due to a cardiac arrest.
She was known as the Iron Lady of India and had a huge fan following in Tamil Nadu. After her death people went out of control and there was stampede like condition in the state.
Notably, she was ill from several days and she made her public appearance in September. Now, finally Sasikala has taken over the charge. But one of the major challenges for VK Sasikala would be to convince voters that she is the rightful heir of Amma.
