The Chief Minister of Tamil Nadu Edappadi K Palaniswami and Deputy Chief Minister O Paneerselvam on Wednesday, November 14 unveiled a new statue of former Chief Minister J Jayalalithaa at the All India Dravida Munnetra (AIADMK) headquarters in Royapettah in Chennai.
The new statue has replaced the previous one which faced flak for not resembling the late Chief Minister. The previous statue was installed in February 2018 at the party headquarters during the 70th birth anniversary of the leader.
Unveiling the previous statue, Palaniswami had said '' When Jayalalitha was alive, she faced a lot of obstacles in her life. We have faced many obstacles as well. We have passed all those hurdles but have come out successful.''
Jayalalithaa was popularly known as 'Amma' breathed her last on December 2016, at Chennai Appolo hospital.
