Former AIADMK General Secretary V.K. Sasikala, former Chief Minister and the late J. Jayalalithaa's longtime companion, and her nephew were the last year expelled following the imprisonment of Sasikala in a corruption case.
Dinakaran was few months ago arrested for alleged bribery and then evicted from the party by Tamil Nadu Chief Minister E. Palaniswami to patch-up with O. Panneerselvam. following a rift in the party that started after Jayalalithaa's death.
Dhinakaran, who recently won the by-election in Chennai's RK Nagar constituency -- the seat represented by iconic leader Jayalalithaa -- will launch his party on March 15 in Madurai. (ANI)
