President’s condolence message over the demise of TN Chief Minister

HE pic“I am saddened by the news of the demise of the honorable Chief Minister of the state of Tamil Nadu Ms. J. Jayalalithaa.

Honorable Chief Minister Jayalalithaa was totally dedicated to the welfare of the people she represented and was dearly loved by her people. Hon. Jayalalithaa was a towering presence in Indian politics and who was elected thrice to lead the state government of Tamil Nadu.

In Hon. Jayalalithaa India loses a leading female politician and truly pro-poor leader, whom people fondly called ‘Amma’.

At this time of grief, our thoughts and prayers are with the people of Tamil Nadu.”
