Jayalalitha death has come as a crude shock for millions of her followers. That she was hospitalized for 74 days and hence had a natural death also not able to pacify the suspicious brewing among people. How come a sitting Chief Minister who had inaugurated the Chennai Metro Rail on 21st September was silently admitted to Apollo Hospital never to return? How can a simple fever and dehydration problem – as said by Apollo for reason of hospitalization – lead to her death with the best medical team available at her disposal? What about embalming dots on her cheeks?
Did Sasikala Kill Jayalalitha?
A Whatsapp message has gone viral over the social media where eminent lawyer Krishnamoorthy is heard discussing various angle of Jayalalitha death. He seems to directly blaming Sasikala for this unfortunate incident. You can heard him in the embed You Tube video in this post.
Calling someone murderer without any proof at hand is not proper. Many of followers of Jayalalitha are still ready to bestow trust of Sasikala just because she was the most trusted person of their Amma.
However, one should never forget that Tehalka had once published a cover story where it was disclosed that Sasikala was going ahead with ‘slow poisoning’ Jayalalitha. The then Gujarat CM Narendra Modi is said to have tipped Jayalalitha about this who in turn asked Sasikala and her family to leave Poes Garden home. Few months later, Sasikala was taken back into the party when she publicly disowned her relatives who were said to be behind all those drama.
Sasikala never filed any defamation suit against Tehalka for that story. Did she repeat everything again?
Sasikala During Hospitalization of the Chief Minister
The conduct of Sasikala during the entire phase of Jayalalitha hospitalization was making people angry. She was the controlling authority of everything and all rumors getting viral over the social media happened because of foolish conduct of Sasikala. She has allegedly prevented even the Governor and ministers from seeing Amma. She was not allowing anyone to enter Jayalalitha room, the most powerful politicians could have expected during protracted hospitalization was access to the floor – not room.
Even after Amma’s death, Sasikala tried to be as close as possible to the dead body. Further, she controlled everything. It seems that the announcement of the death was delayed till a deal was brokered.
Sasikala family is already termed as a mafia in the Tamil Nadu politics. There are many allegations of nepotism, corruption and shady business deals against this family.
After the burial of Jayalalitha, Mr. Nataraja – husband of Sasikala – came to the limelight. He was seen discussing important political points with prominent AIADMK leaders. It should be noted that Natarajan was always perceived as a conman by Jayalalitha.
Coming back to the point, there are many unresolved questions in the death of Jayalalitha. Calling someone as murdered may not be appropriate. But, there is also no doubt that people should know behind the real reason of death of their beloved leader.
Jayalalitha had reportedly issued a statement few days before her death that she is absolutely fine and she considers it as her rebirth. And, few days later she died. How? Cardiac Arrest? Remember, Apollo had issued a statement on 4th December that Jayalalitha is now absolutely fine and will start working within one week. Did Apollo issue that medical bulletin without checking vitals of Jayalalitha?
