    Polonium poisoning like Sunanda Pushkar. You all know the results. Now what is happening is to irradiate her to prevent the news leaking out. It takes time, isn't it. lt;br/gt;lt;br/gt;There are only 2.5!years left. Before that everything need to be done to establish in TN. The strategy is to let her go and after her break AIADMK and make a major group first align with BJP and then merge the group with BJP. That is the only way BJP can establish itself in TN, even in a minuscule amount. Scoundrel SoBrahMINION Swamy's idea to bRAWminions. And you see the execution right now.

      Before anything happens, there should be a Amma Funeral Parlour opened in her honor!

        This is an unfair comment! Absolutely inhuman. I am no Jayalalitha fan. I would like to look at her as a human being and the suffering she is going through!

          From the way she is being treated one can guess that she is hardly conscious if not in coma. It is strange that no minister has been given officially the charge of the chief minister. One good thing is, the British made IAS officers are keeping the official machinery running.
