Jayalalitha hospital video leaked | Jayalalithaa Video footage | Jayalalithaa’s ‘Video’ in Apollo Hospital Released
The TTV Dinakaran faction of the AIADMK has released a purported video of late Tamil Nadu Chief Minister J Jayalalithaa, a day before the crucial RK Nagar bypoll in Chennai.
In the video, the former AIADMK supremo is seen holding a glass and drinking from it, while reportedly watching TV.
Jayalalithaa was in the hospital for three months last year until she died on December 5. Many had suggested that she was dead when she was brought to hospital and she had been kept in there for political motives. Meanwhile, the Apollo hospital had said that Jayalalithaa was unconscious when she was brought on September 22.
The release of the video, just ahead of the bypoll, can be viewed as an attempt by the Dinakaran camp to clear the air over Jayalalithaa’s death, which is already being investigated by a judicial commission.
Dinakaran had earlier claimed that he has videos of Jayalalithaa watching television at Apollo hospital had been recorded by VK Sasikala – a close aide of the ex-CM, now serving a sentence in a corruption case. TTV made those comments after Tamil Nadu’s forest minister Dindigul C Srinivasan admitted he had lied about Jayalalithaa’s improving health.
“The release of the video is not connected to the RK Nagar elections in any manner. This is to prevent her image from getting further tarnished,” Vetrivel said.
“This is basically evidence that Jayalalithaa was alive and was being cared for in hospital. She underwent treatment before she was unfortunately taken away due to a heart attack,”
With even the Madras High Court raising questions over Jayalalithaa’s death, the TN government had appointed a one man commission headed by Justice (Retd.) Arumugasamy to probe into the death.
