Sasikala Natarajan, a close confidante of the former Tamil Nadu Chief Minister Jayalalithaa, today took over as the new general secretary of the ruling AIADMK.

Sasikala broke down during his first address to the party workers as AIADMK chief.

"Amma (Jayalalithaa) is not with us now but our party will rule here for the next 100 years," Sasikala said. 

Referring to the period during which Jayalalithaa was hospitalised, Sasikala said that the former Chief Minister struggled for 75 days but the Almighty called his beloved child back to him. 

Sasikala said that she had been with Jayalalithaa since she was 29, and that the former Tamil Nadu Chief Minister was her "life."

The new AIADMK general secretary further said that  she will follow Jayalalithaa's directions while leading the AIADMK.

Sasikala Natarajan was unanimously chosen to lead the AIADMK at a party meeting on Thursday.
