Jayalalithaa’s portrait to be unveiled on Feb 12

Chennai : Tamil Nadu Chief Minister Edappadi K Palanisamy will be unveiling a portrait of former chief minister J Jayalalithaa in the state assembly on February 12.

Lovingly referred as Amma by her supporters, Jayalalithaa passed away on December 5, 2016, after suffering from prolonged illness.

Her death shattered the All India Anna Dravida Munnetra Kazhagam (AIADMK) into factions, and after much unrest, Palanisamy finally assumed the office of the chief minister on February 16, 2017. (ANI)
