Chennai, Feb 14: In her first address to party cadres including MLAs, after the Supreme Court convicted her in a disproportionate assets case, Sasikala Natrajan appealed for unity. Breaking down while making her statement, she blamed Karunanidhi for the case filed against her and Jayalalithaa and called today's verdict a result of a case filed by AIADMK's 'enemy' Karunanidhi.
"I am overwhelmed that despite facing troubles, MLAs are supporting me. I am sure that we will be invited to form the government soon. You have to remain resolute and make sure that DMK becomes a non-entity in Tamil Nadu. People should question if DMK ever existed," she said addressing the cadres.
Speaking of being jailed, Sasikala broke down and said that no matter the imprisonment, her work for the party will continue. " Today's verdict is the result of Karunanidhi's case against us. I will face this. No jail can separate me from AIADMK and Wherever I am, I will always think about the party. I am only glad that Amma did not live to face this situation," she said.
While the AIADMK stated that a review petition will be filed against the SC verdict, sources suggest that Sasikala Natrajan will surrender before a court in Bengaluru as soon as the order copy is handed over.
