The Letter states
You have not made me Chief Minister and have been delaying this matter. Because of this, the MLAs, who have been locked up by me are going to OPS’ side one by one. I can only be patient for some time. If you delay further, I will write a letter saying you are the reason for my death and I am going to commit suicide.
As general secretary, I can tell that the AIADMK government will certainly continue for the next four and a half years and serve people of TN, she asserted that the MLAs were with her.
While speaking to reporters outside Poes Garden residence, Sasikala, who was elected the legislature party leader a week ago, termed the "fake" a letter which in her name and purportedly addressed to Governor Ch Vidyasagar Rao.
There is a fake letter in my name doing the rounds in social media.
The media should also see it how difficult t is for a woman to be in politics. Have seen that during purathchi thalaivi's (Jayalalithaa) times also, but she overcame it," Sasikala said.
She said she had also seen such things happening in AIADMK following the death of its founder the late MG Ramachandran, but late J Jayalalithaa had steered it tactfully and even ensured it won a successive term in last year's polls.
Since that time there have been efforts to split the party and those who made such efforts then are doing it today even," she said, indirectly referring to caretaker CM O Panneerselvam, who has revolted against her, being a member of the faction led by Janaki, the widow of Ramachandran, then..
AIADMK was then divided as Janaki and Jayalalithaa factions. Ssasikala added, "We are used to these challenges."
On the delay by Governor in inviting her to form the government and on the 10 MPs joining rival camp, she said you very well know the reason.
On various charges made against her by Panneerselvam, she said they will be responded to at the appropriate time.
