Former AIADMK MP Sasikala Pushpa has written a letter to the Tamil Nadu Governor C Vidyasagar Rao mentioning her fear that some people might forge the signature of Tamil Nadu chief minister J Jayalalitha to nominate a deputy general secretary in her absence. In her letter written on October 8, she requested the governor to verify any communication came from the side of the minister, who is currently undergoing medical treatment.
Sasikala, who has been expelled from AIADMK after an altercation with DMK MP Tiruchi Siva at the Delhi airport, is once again in headlines with the aforementioned revelation. She has mentioned in the letter that she “feared that some people around” Jayalalithaa “may forge her signature to nominate a deputy general secretary to AIADMK” as well as to “Run the government”.
The former mayor of Thoothukudi asked the governor to “verify carefully” the signature of Jayalalithaa in the case of any official communication came from her or any other person “in this or any other regard”.
The CM of Tamil Nadu, who is fondly called “Amma” by her fans, has been in the hospital for her bad health since September 22. She had also faced a similar situation in July last year when she had to skip an Iftar party citing sudden illness.
In a statement on October 2, the Apollo Hospitals had said that Dr Richard Beale, who was flown in from London on September 30, had a detailed discussion with the expert group of doctors treating the CM. They concluded that she continue the present medication to treat the infection. They went on to say that she was responding well to the treatment but has been advised to stay in the hospital for a few more days.
