Congress veteran and former Finance Minister P Chidambaram on Tuesday expressed grief over the death of AIADMK supremo J Jayalalithaa, saying she “brought a hard, uncompromising style” to politics and governance that won praise and criticism. In a series of tweets, Chidambaram also said that the late Chief Minister acquired loyal following that equalled that of her mentor MG Ramachandran.
