Chennai: There is a new conspiracy theory surrounding former Tamil Nadu chief minister Jayalalithaa’s death. A rebel AIADMK leader, P H Pandian, has come out with a claim that the former AIADMK general secretary was hospitalised when she was pushed by someone that caused her to lose balance and fall down.
It must be kept in mind that Pandian, a former Tamil Nadu speaker, belongs to O Panneerselvam camp that is bent upon creating confusion behind Amma’s death. Jayalalithaa was known as amma, or mother among Tamil people. The rebel camp wants to discredit Sasikala faction of the AIADMK that is now ruling the state.
While speaking at the residence of O Panneerselvam, Pandian said, “Amma (Jayalalithaa) fell down after someone pushed her. Nobody knows what happened to Amma after that. A police official called an ambulance, and she was taken to hospital”.
He went on to add that as many as 27 CCTV cameras were removed from Apollo Hospitals after Jayalalithaa was hospitalised. The hospital management should explain why they had been removed, he said. He said Jayalalithaa died at 4.30pm on December 4 but the hospital announced that she died only on December 5. Pandian wanted to know which family member had given the permission to stop medical treatment to Jayalalithaa.
When asked as to what were the sources of his information, the AIADMK rebel leader said, “I have my sources. I am conducting investigations on my own.” He went on to add, “There are several doubts in the treatment given to Amma. Being a chief minister, she was under SPG security. Was her food checked as per the SPG Act and why were they not allowed in the hospital…Apollo Hospitals has several physiotherapists. Why were physiotherapists brought from a Singapore hospital to treat Jayalalithaa”.
