Chennai: Last year on December 5, Tamil Nadu lost its favourite politician and leader Jayalalithaa to a prolonged illness. Her state and political party have been embroiled in utter chaos ever since.

On Tuesday, the rival factions of AIADMK took out separate silent rallies to observe the day that changed Tamil Nadu forever. The rallies are expected to originate at the Anna Statue on Mount Road in Chennai.

Hundreds of Jayalalithaa fans have been trooping onto the streets of Chennai since morning and most of them say they are yet to come to terms with the demise.

On her first death anniversary, the party that Jayalalithaa had nurtured for decades is struggling with a deep divide, while her trusted aide VK Sasikala is in jail.

Meanwhile, the late chief minister’s niece Deepa Jayakumar has once again raised doubts over Jayalalithaa’s death and alleged foul play.

Deepa said, “I have never believed that a one-man commission can probe Amma’s death. A CBI probe into the matter is the only solution otherwise the present state government and Sasikala’s family would try to control the probe.”

She added, “If they are not willing to probe the state government, authorities at the Apollo hospital, security personnel at the Poes Garden residence, then there is no need to probe the case at all. It is very evident that it was a murder.”
