Sasikala on Mouna Vratha, says Dhinakaran

A day before taking oath newly  elected MLA TTV Dhinakaran met disgraced AIADMK leader and his aunt V K Sasikala at Parappana Agrahara Central Prison on Thursday.

Dhinakaran has recenlty won the recently held byelection to RK Nagar Assembly seat earlier represented by former Tamil Nadu chief minister late J Jayalalithaa.  

He came with one of his advocates and two relatives to meet Sasikala around 12.30 pm and stayed there for nearly one hour. "I came to take blessings from her and also to discuss political developments in the Tamil Nadu,'' he told media persons later.

He said Sasikala is observing Mouna Vratha (Vow of silence) till January 31 in memory of Amma (Jayalalithaa). "She just listened what I said. I informed her about future plans,'' he added.

Dhinakaran met her in a special room meant for special convicts.  After coming out from the prison, Dinakaran refused to comment on number of MLAs joining him and said he cannot comment as it is a secret. He said, "you (media) will see when there is a floor test."

Replying to the recent comment against him by Tamil Nadu Finance Minister D Jayakumar calling him a bed bug,  Dhinakaran said, "Jayakumar is a mosquito which causes dengue and I am sure that people of Tamil Nadu will do away with dengue mosquitoes as it is a serious concern."

Permission was not given to Dhinakaran in the last few months to meet Sasikala following a report submitted by then DIG (Prisons) Roopa alleging special treatment to her.  

Sasikala along with her sister-in-law Iluvarasi and nephew V N Sudhakaran are convicted in a disproportionate assets case.
