While AIADMK is urging VK Sasikala to become AIADMK’s General Secretary, ministers from the party are now also pushing her to contest the by-polls and become the chief minister of Tamil Nadu.
Minister for Revenue, RB Udhayakumar submitted a resolution to Sasikala to take over the reigns of the party during a meeting of the Peravai at the burial ground of former Chief Minister Jayalalithaa, where the 13th-day rituals were underway. He also urged Sasikala to contest the polls and become the chief minister of the state.

With Jayalalithaa’s demise, RB Nagar, the constituency she won from will be in order for a bypoll and the AIADMK leaders want Sasikala to contest from there.
While posters supporting Jayalalithaa’s aide Sasikala Natarajan describe her as ‘Chinnamma’, work is at full swing to make her the party’s general secretary.
