AIADMK chief V K Sasikala today visited the memorial of J Jayalalithaa and the Ramapuram residence of party founder M G Ramachandran before leaving for Bengaluru to surrender before a court.
The 62-year-old leader, who was locked in a bitter tussle with AIADMK’s O Panneerselvam for Tamil Nadu’s chief ministership, took the inevitable journey to the Karnataka capital after the Supreme Court earlier today refused to give her further time to surrender.
At the Jayalalithaa memorial, Sasikala made her way through the crowd of supporters that included a sobbing former Minister Gokula Indira and Deputy General Secretary and her nephew T T V Dinakaran, and put up a brave face.
Later at the Ramapuram residence of M G Ramachandran, popularly known as MGR, she briefly meditated before his portrait.
She also paid homage to a life size statue of the former matinee idol at the residence, which she had unveiled recently.
