"If they include Chinnamma, AIADMK will become much stronger. If Chinnamma wishes to join BJP, we will welcome her," he said.

The BJP MLA's statement comes days after Sasikala reignited speculation about returning to AIADMK.

Tamil Nadu has always been ruled by two Dravidian parties - AIADMK and MK Stalin's Dravida Munnetra Kazhagam (DMK).

Earlier, Sasikala had claimed that only some AIADMK leaders, who are seeking party polls, were against her entry into the AIADMK fold.

Sasikala had said, "Not everyone speaks against me. Only a few. They might be making such remarks perhaps in the expectation of a party post. The party was started by our leader and only the cadres can decide the leadership."

However, AIADMK Joint-Coordinator and former Chief Minister Edappadi K Palaniswami has reiterated that there was no scope for Sasikala in the party.

Taking a dig at the media, she had also said that it was failing to highlight the wrongdoings of the DMK government. She came out strongly against the state government for constituting committees headed by private persons and said that the IAS officers will not implement their recommendations. Sasikala said the government must stop constituting such committees and take IAS officers into confidence and execute government work directly through them.
