Poor health and pending case were earlier cited as reasons for the leader to withdraw from active politics and campaigns during the last Assembly polls. Sasikala is an ousted leader of the AIADMK. The party was defeated in the last Assembly polls, giving way to DMK. It is expected that her reentry in the state politics would be under the banner of her nephew TTV Dhinakaran’s Amma Makkal Munnetra Kazhagam (AMMK).

It is being said that cadres in AIADMK and AMMK made hundreds of calls to Sasikala and around 500 cadres wrote to her to return to politics and take over the party.

In  March, this  year she had written a letter written to her followers and members of the AIADMK party, announcing that she is going to quit politics. The decision comes after her return to public life after spending four years in prison. She had been convicted of corruption in 2017. The letter announcing her departure was written in Tamil.
