V.K. Sasikala appointed as AIADMK general secretary

Resolution passed at general council meeting says that until the formal election process is completed, she will hold all powers that come with the post.

The AIADMK general council on Thursday unanimously passed a resolution appointing V.K. Sasikala, close aide of former Chief Minister and party supremo Jayalalithaa, as general secretary of the party.

The resolution said that until the formal election process was completed, she would hold all powers that came with the post.

The resolution read “as per Rule 20(2) of the party’s by-laws, this Council unanimously resolves that V.K. Sasikala will be appointed General Secretary until she is formally elected to the post”. It said, “Ms. Sasikala will have all powers vested with the general secretary.”

The general council meeting was presided by party presidium chairman E. Madhusudhanan. This was its first meeting after Jayalalithaa’s death.

The chorus for Ms. Sasikala as general secretary started a few days after the death.
