The followers of Amma aka Jayalalithaa are following her, but they are rarely seeing the deflection of her devotion from Amma to her family yet again. She was expelled for the same reason. Well, she is in charge now and she can do whatsoever she wants. She can put the MLAs in a resort to avoid defection and then make her family members in charge when she is in jail. The support of Sasikala in public forum is little but whatsoever she has is the prime reason why Corrupt Politicians are still at control in India.
