Former Chief Minister of Tamil Nadu Jayalalitha has always been the topic of politics for all the good reasons. She pretty much changed the dynamics of South India’s politics during her time. The whole era of women looked up to her for her perseverance and a strong personality. Post her death, there are hundreds of stories that surfaced the Internet baffling the netizens.
One of such is this picture of her in black and white. In this picture she is seen surrounded, assisted by some people towards her car. Her hair looked messy, and she seemed anxious.
The story behind this picture is quite fascinating, in fact, this is that one specific situation that laid pavement to the modern Tamil Nadu politics.
Coming to the actual context of the story, it was taken at the Tamil Nadu State Assembly where the clash between the then Chief Minister Karuna Nidhi and Jayalalitha got heated up when talking about the Budget Plan.
The members from either party got into a physical fight which ended up leaving Jayalitha’s saree torn, and hair messed. She was assisted towards her car, right before leaving the assembly, she had sworn that she will step back into the Assembly only as a Chief Minister. Just right in 1991 elections, her party AIDMK won 225 of 234 seats and formed the Government.
Ever since that elections, the face of Tamil Nadu politics got changed into something else. The rivalry between Karunanidhi and Jayalalitha went on for the following two decades. But the way she challenged the opposition in 1989, and the comeback she made into the Assembly only as a Chief Minister was quite intense. She proved herself, made it in an impressive way.
Everything she had done for the state, the legacy she left is absolutely incomparable.
