Chennai: A silent procession, floral tributes and a pledge to win the ensuing general elections by the ruling AIADMK leaders marked the second death anniversary of then Chief Minister J. Jayalalithaa here.
Wearing black shirts, Chief Minister K. Palaniswami and his cabinet colleagues, MPs and MLAs and others took out the procession from Anna Statute on Anna Salai here to Jayalalithaa’s memorial on the Marina beach.
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 leader and Rajya Sabha member Kanimozhi 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.
Jayalalithaa passed away on December 5, 2016 after being in Apollo Hospital here for 75 days.
