Dinakaran meets Sasikala in prison before resuming party work
August 02, 2017  23:26
A day after announcing his return to active party work, sidelined AIADMK (Amma) Deputy General Secretary T T V Dinakaran today met his aunt and party chief V K Sasikala at the Parappana Agrahara central prison in Bengaluru.
Emerging out of the jail premises, Dinakaran said he enquired about Sasikala's health and discussed about party affairs with her.
Sasikala is serving four-year jail term in a disproportionate wealth case.
Dinakaran told reporters that he would work towards strengthening the party by touring across the state.
He had yesterday announced that he would resume party work from August 4 after a two-month hiatus and embark on a state-wide tour to facilitate efforts for merger of rival factions.
His comments assume significance as a camp led by Tamil Nadu Chief Minister K Palaniswami had earlier kept him and Sasikala from the affairs of the party and government.
Though Dinakaran had then said that he would keep away from the party work, he later questioned the authority of the ministers to sideline him.
However, he said Sasikala had asked him to give two months time for the merger of the factions which would end on August 4.
