AIADMK leaders paid floral tributes to Jayalalithaa on her death anniversary
Chennai: The All India Anna Dravida Munnetra Kazhagam (AIADMK) leaders paid a silent procession, floral tributes and a pledge to mark the second death anniversary of then Chief Minister J. Jayalalithaa here.
The Chief Minister K. Palaniswami and his cabinet colleagues, MPs and MLAs and others took out the procession from Anna Statute on Anna Salai to Jayalalithaa’s memorial on the Marina beach by wearing black shirts.
Placing a wreath and paying floral tributes, the AIADMK leaders and cadres took a pledge to work hard and win the ensuing Assembly and Lok Sabha elections.
DMK (Dravida Munnetra Kazhagam) leader and Rajya Sabha member Kanimozhi also paid tributes to Jayalalithaa.
“Surviving as a woman in a male dominated political world is not an easy task. Late AIADMK chief Jayalalithaa confronted the challenges and proved successful. The lack of clarity shrouding her final days are very unfortunate and not befitting the leader she was,” Kanimozhi tweeted.
It is to be mentioned that Jayalalithaa passed away on December 5, 2016. She was suffering from fever and dehydration and underwent medical treatment for about 75 days before her demise.
