Stalin reiterates conspiracy theory about Jayalalithaa

DMK’s working president MK Stalin has continued to raise suspicion about the death of former Chief Minister of Tamil Nadu J Jayalalithaa and the sudden elevation of VK Sasikala.

According to a report in The Indian Express, he told The Times of India that Jayalalithaa’s treatment was shrouded in mystery and the truth would soon come out in public.

Earlier in the day, he had also said that “Tamil Nadu is being tossed up in turbulent waters and it is left to the DMK to salvage it”.


Following O Panneerselvam’s resignation as chief minister, the Opposition leader said it was Jayalalithaa’s wish make him in charge.

“When Jayalalithaa was jailed in the disproportionate assets case, she nominated only O Panneerselvam as chief minister. Even when she was hospitalised in the Apollo, she handed over her portfolios only to him,” Stalin said.

He added the current legislative leader, Sasikala, was not given any post in the party or in the government during Jayalalithaa’s tenure.

“But today, going against the wishes of Jayalalithaa, and the people of Tamil Nadu, this development has taken place. We will fight this democratically,” he said.
