After Amma’s death Tamil Nadu politics takes a new turn and Sasikala used the power of the Poes Garden and come at the top. From the Ramavaram Thottam of MGR the stage is centred around Poes Garden and the political activities are taking place in full swing. Sasikala is a senior member of the party and she was associated with Jayalalithaa for the past 35 years. There is soft corner for the party cadre to thrust upon the role of General Secretary on her so that they can see smooth sailing of the party for the next four and half years. After few days and chaos and confusion, now a picture has emerged that Sasikala is in all probability will take over the reins unless there is some outside influence upsetting the applecart.
