Chennai: There is a concerted campaign against Sasikala Natrajan taking over as the Chief Minister of Tamil Nadu. Opposition DMK has said that it cannot think of Jayalalithaa household member taking over the reins of the state and a writ petition has been filed in Supreme Court against her taking over as the chief minister.
Nonetheless all these things cannot stop her from taking over as the chief minister of Tamil Nadu as she has been elected the legislature party leader of the AIADMK unanimously. There was not a dissenting voice against her as there never used to be any dissent against Jayalalithaa.
In the meantime, in the backdrop of rumors surrounding Jayalalithaa’s death, specialists who had treated the late chief minister of the state Apollo Hospitals here in Chennai said that Jayalalithaa died due to multiple organ failure.
The British expert who was flown from London to treat her, Dr Richard Beale, said she had high diabetes that led to respiratory failure and dysfunction of her organs.
He went on to add, “At the beginning, when she was unwell, she was not able to interact. Later on the situation improved and she was aware and able to interact more”.
He further said that it is not normal practice to photograph a patient and publish private details, it is an intrusion into her privacy. A clutch of petitions were earlier filed in the Supreme Court seeking a probe into the death of Jayalalithaa, contending that the circumstances leading to her demise were surrounded by mystery. The petitioners claimed that doubts have been raised over the circumstances of AIADMK leader’s death and her medical reports needed to be examined by experts.
