Jayalalithaa's death mystery: Sasikala says ready to face any inquiry

V K Sasikala also said that she was pained at the "politicisation of Amma's death."

AIADMK general secretary V K Sasikala on February 9 expressed her readiness to face any probe in connection to the death of former Tamil Nadu cheif Minsiter J. Jayalalithaa.

“I am ready to face any inquiry into Jayalalithaa’s death,” she said to a leading news channel while referring to the probe ordered by acting state chief minister O Paneerselvam.

Stating that she was least worried over the probe, the 60 year old leader said she was  pained over the “politicisation of Amma’s death.”

Asserting that she does not owe an explanation to anybody, Sasikala said, “Amma Jayalalithaa knows who am I. So I don’t need to answer anyone else.”

“We called doctors from the world over. All the news about her health is planted. There was no delay in taking Amma to the hospital,” she added.

Expressing her disappointment over the absence of state governor Vidyasagar Rao, Sasikala said, She was looking for an explanation on why the governor refused to meet her despite several requests.

“We tried to meet him, but was told that the Governor is in Ooty. I hope the Governor protects the Constitution and upholds the dignity of law,” she added.

The AIADMK leader has earlier declared OPS a traitor saying that he has betrayed the legacy of Amma  and his actions in the assembly were “suspicious.”
