Sasikala’s influence in the Tamil Nadu government and the AIADMK party came down considerably after 2012. This was told to the Justice Arumughaswamy Commission of Inquiry by Krishnapriya, who is Sasikala’s niece.
The last serial that Jayalalithaa watched before she passed away was Jai Veera Hanuman. On the evening of December 4, 2016, before the former Tamil Nadu chief minister suffered a massive cardiac arrest, she had watched a serial and even asked for coffee, her close aide Sasikala Natarajan said.
Did Sasikala visit the house of an MLA. Sasikala Natrajan who was convicted by the Supreme Court in the disproportionate assets case is serving her four year sentence in the Bengaluru central jail.
The AIADMK merger hit a last minute roadblock on Friday night. The run up from 4 pm onwards appeared to suggest that the EPS-OPS factions would come together, but that did not happen.
When the Supreme Court passed the order in the disproportionate assets case, it abated the sentence against former Tamil Nadu chief minister Jayalalithaa. As a result of this, the sentence of four years was abated in the event of her death. Moreover Karnataka’s review seeking a clarification on whether it could collect the Rs 100 crore fine was also rejected which meant none of the properties would be seized.
From Jayalalithaa’s most trusted aide to a strong contender for the post of Tamil Nadu chief minister, Sasikala Natarajan today is a deserted soul. Lodged at the Parapana Agrahara jail after being held guilty in the disproportionate assets case, she hardly has any visitor. One person who religiously called on her was T T V Dinakaran, but he too is in jail in connection with the Election Commission bribery case.
Politically irrelevant and out of the thick of action, Sasikala Natarajan has decided to pick up a book and learn how to speak English. Lodged in the Bengaluru central jail after being sentenced to four years imprisonment in the disproportionate assets case, Sasikala has requested jail authorities to provide her an English tutor.
As the merger talks continue and Sasikala Natarajan and family continue to be sidelined, the rumour mills in Tamil Nadu are abuzz with talk that the Bharatiya Janata Party is stirring this activity. Some within the AIADMK have blamed the BJP for the split and then the ouster of Sasikala and T T V Dinakaran from the party.
He has been in and out of jail several times, but that never deterred him. Addicted to a good life-style and a life of conning people, Sukesh Chandrasekhar was a son who was disowned by his parents. His father who worked at a bank disowned him after realising that his son was a repeat offender.
It appears as though the curtains will be drawn on the political career of T T V Dinakaran, the nephew of Sasikala Natarajan. Facing arrest in a bribery case, Dinakaran is likely to resign after meeting with Sasikala at the Bengaluru central prison where she is lodged after being convicted in the disproportionate assets case.
