A fresh controversy surrounding former Tamil Nadu chief minister J Jayalalithaa’s death ignited Thursday when Justice Vaidyalingam of the Madras High Court expressed doubts over her demise. “Media has raised a lot of doubts, personally I also have doubts in Jayalalithaa’s death,” said Justice Vaidyalingam. He was hearing a petition demanding an inquiry into the former chief minister’s death. “When she was admitted in hospital, it was said that she was on proper diet. At least after her death now, truth should be revealed,” he said.

Several petitions, including one moved by expelled AIADMK MP Sasikala, have been filed in courts over Jayalalithaa’s death. She breathed her last on December 5, after spending 75 days at Apollo Hospitals in Chennai.

AIADMK today appointed Jayalalithaa’s close aide V K Sasikala as the party general secretary. In a unanimous resolution adopted at the party’s general council meeting, AIADMK members handed over control of the party to Sasikala. As per the party constitution, she still needs to be formally elected to the post. Other resolutions moved at the meeting include one on observing Jayalalithaa’s birthday as “National Farmers Day”. The party also demanded that Jayalithaa must be conferred with Magsaysay award and the Nobel prize for World Peace.
