Chennai: Actor-politician T Rajendar has said sidelined AIADMK general secretary V K Sasikala is now in jail only because she did not pay heed to his advice. Speaking to reporters here, the multifaceted personality, popularly called as TR, said in his typical rythmic style, “Had she listened to me, she would have been in AC room, not in jail room.”
Elaborating, he said that when Sasikala became the general secretary of the AIADMK after the death of J Jayalalithaa, he did not oppose it. “But she wanted to become the chief minister, I said no. I told her that it was a plot against her and her downfall would start soon.”
He added: “At that time, many ridiculed me saying whether my prediction was based on astrology. But what has happened now?” He further said that on many occasions, he gave advices to both Jayalalithaa and Sasikala.
Hitting out at top stars Rajinikanth and Kamal Haasan who are lately expressing political views, he said that they are cheating people in the name of politics. He also wanted to know what DMK working president M K Stalin did to the people of Tamil Nadu despite having close to 90 MLAs.
