Asserting that the AIADMK will remain undivided on the matter of the appointment of the next Tamil Nadu Chief Minister, VK Sasikala revealed the last words spoken by Jayalalithaa to her lawmakers last night.

The 61-year-old close confidante of the late Chief Minister, who claimed that 129 MLAs were in her kitty despite some party lawmakers flocking towards O Panneerselvam’s camp, said that Jayalalithaa’s last words were an entreaty for the unity of the party.

“Amma told me, no one can destroy the party,” Sasikala said as she wiped away her tears with the help of a handkerchief.

O Panneerselvam, who has been dominating the headlines following his power-struggle with the close confidante of former Chief Minister Jayalalithaa, is a growing threat to Sasikala who wants to hold the reign to Tamil Nadu.

However, if Supreme Court’s verdict – which will come anytime this week – declares Sasikala as guilty, Chennai Governor may give Panneerselvam the right for the formation of the government.

“Amma and I have both seen jails in Chennai and Bengaluru. We’ve also come back and captured power. So don’t underestimate the power of a common woman, we can do anything,” Sasikala told her party members.
