`I will sacrifice my life to protect the party and government’: Sasikala

Chennai: AIADMK General Secretary VK Sasikala on Sunday said that if some people think that she would get scared at being threatened due to a woman, they were mistaken.

She told the legislators that those who are with the lion are also lions

Addressing party legislators housed at a beach resort near here, Sasikala said: If they think I can be threatened because of me being a woman then it would not happen.”

In an extempore speech, she said: “I was with a lion (late Chief Minister J Jayalalithaa). I am the little new lion. They tried to net me. This lion will come out of the net.”

She told the legislators that those who are with the lion are also lions.

“I will not fear anybody. Nobody can shake this party and the government. I will not back track from a decision taken,” she said.

“I will sacrifice my life to protect the party and government,” Sasikala said.

“If you are all with me, we will do our duty to the party and the people. I will take the right decision,” she added.

“I am telling from here to Delhi that nobody can do anything to the party.

“Amma (Jayalalithaa) and I have seen Chennai jail and also the Bengaluru jail. We have captured power after coming out of jail,” she said.

Sasikala said she could see a vast change in the faces of legislators after her address to them on Saturday.

Without naming anybody, she said people had enquired about her and what kind of a person she is.

“They were told that I was with Amma (Jayalalithaa) for 33 years and does not fear anybody and will not back track on a decision,” she said.

She urged the legislators to work hard so that in next Lok Sabha elections the party would win 40 seats (39 in Tamil Nadu and the lone Puducherry seat).

Sasikala said that the family members of party legislators are being threatened, and the party is chalking out plans for next course of action.

She said the opposition is spreading rumours that law makers are being held captive.

“Legislators here told me how their family members are being threatened over phone. They have asked their relatives to take care of their children,” Sasikala said.

Queried about the protest plan that she announced on Saturday if the Governor does not call her to form the government, she said: “Some preparatory work is being done for that.”

Sasikala said she knows who are spreading the rumours about the party.

Asked about the delay on the part of Governor in calling her to form the government, she said that everybody knows the reason but did not elaborate further.
