Sasikala writes to EC on her appointment

AIADMK general secretary V K Sasikala, who is  lodged in a Bengaluru prison in a disproportionate assets case, on Friday said that all rules and regulations were followed in her appointment to the party post.

Sasikala’s reply to the Chief Election Commissioner’s notice came against the backdrop of objections raised by the rebel camp led by O Panneerselvam, which had sought to declare her appointment as illegal.

AIADMK sources said that Sasikala’s lawyers handed over her reply to the Election Commission (EC) at New Delhi.

In her letter to the commission, Sasikala said that she was duly appointed as the AIADMK’s general secretary during the party’s council meeting, and that the senior leaders of the party unanimously accepted the decision.

Sasikala’s earlier reply to the EC notice, signed by her nephew and AIADMK deputy general secretary T T V Dinakaran, was rejected by the commission on the ground that as per the EC’s records, he was not an office-bearer of the party.

The EC had said that either Sasikala should sign the reply herself or there should be an authorised signatory, who is in the commission’s list of AIADMK office bearers, and the reply should be sent again by Friday.
