Jayalalithaa's niece questions Palaniswami's decision to convert Poes Garden residence into memorial

Jayalalithaa's niece questions Palaniswami's decision to convert Poes Garden residence into memorial

Tamil Nadu Chief Minister Edappadi K Palaniswami announced on Thursday that the state government will form a committee to investigate the death of former Chief Minister Jayalalithaa.

Tamil Nadu govt says the inquiry commission will be headed by a retired High Court judge and the name of the judge who will head the probe will be announced later, said the CM.

Jayalalithaa's residence in Poes Garden will also be made into a memorial, the CM said.

After rebelling against the leadership of AIADMK general secretary V.K. Sasikala in February, Panneerselvam, a former chief minister, raised suspicions over the circumstances surrounding Jayalalithaa's death.

Palaniswami's announcements come days after his camp virtually nullified the appointment of T.T.V. Dhinkaran as AIADMK deputy general secretary.

Tourists Arrested in Germany For Performing Hitler Salute
According to the BBC , the duo is faced with criminal proceedings for using banned symbols from the outlawed fascist organisation. If a fine was meted out, the bail money they have already hand over would cover the costs.

The faction has made it as a pre-condition for its merger with the Edappadi Palaniswamy faction of the party, in addition to the demand for dismissal of Jayalalithaa's aide VK Sasikala and her relatives from the party. Her hospitalisation was shrouded in secrecy, with few medical bulletins issued to the public on the state of Jayalalithaa's health.

Now, the party has said it will soon take a decision on doing it again.

Further stressing on the same Deepa said that nobody has right to sale or make any announcement in regard to Jayalalithaa's residence as the former has the moral and ethical rights over that house. He, however, welcomed the decision to convert the Poes Garden residence into a memorial.

On the inquiry, he told PTI that they had actually demanded a CBI probe, though it was the chief minister's view to have a Commission of Inquiry.

Stalin's party colleague T K S Elangovan said the probe move was aimed at easing out jailed party chief V K Sasikala and her family from politics. "After the chaos which prevailed in the party for some months immediately after the passing away of party founder MGR in 1987, the AIADMK has never seen this kind of a no-holds-barred internal war in the party", said a veteran scribe following the AIADMK for the last three decades. The former chief minister died at the Apollo Hospital on December 5, 2016.
