Some of the women who took part in the procession told PTI that ‘nobody can be equal to Amma RPT Amma (Jayalalithaa)’. Political observers said women owed their allegiance to the departed leader for a variety of reasons.

This was the first big show by the ruling party in the city after the demise of Jayalalithaa on December 5 and the participants exhibited total discipline and observed silence as they marched through the Masai Street.
