Dhi­nakaran, dis­qual­i­fied MLAs meet Sasikala

The Hitavada - - NATION -

SIDE­LINED AIADMK leader T T V Dhi­nakaran and some of the dis­qual­i­fied party MLAs on Fri­day met V K Sasikala at a prison here. This was the first meet­ing the for­mer leg­is­la­tors had with Sasikala post a Madras High Court or­der up­hold­ing their dis­qual­i­fi­ca­tion by Speaker P Dhana­pal last year. Sasikala, the de­posed AIADMK leader, is serv­ing a four year jail term in a dis­porpor­tion­ate as­sets case at the Parap­pana Agra­hara prison here.

Dhi­nakaran was ac­com­pa­nied by a group of dis­qual­i­fied MLAs be­sides a cou­ple of sit­ting leg­is­la­tors, all loyal to him. Later, speak­ing to re­porters, Dhi­nakaran said the dis­qual­i­fied MLAs had ear­lier ex­pressed their de­sire to meet her.

He said she ap­pre­ci­ated their de­ci­sion to face by­polls rather than ap­peal­ing against the Madras High Court or­der in the Supreme Court.

“They dis­cussed the High Court ver­dict and our fu­ture ac­tiv­i­ties. She is aware of ev­ery­thing and she said it is the right de­ci­sion (to face polls),” Dhi­nakaran, Sasikala’s nephew, said.
