Chennai: Tamil Nadu Chief Minister Edappadi K. Palaniswami has written a letter to Prime Minister Narendra Modi, inviting him to unveil a portrait of J Jayalalithaa in the state legislative assembly in July.

 

The invitation to unveil the portrait of the former Tamil Nadu chief minister and AIADMK general secretary comes more than five months after her demise in a hospital here from an over three-month-long illness.


It also comes amidst political and leadership wrangling within the AIADMK in which two factions -- one led by former chief minister O. Paneerselvam, and the other led by jailed former general secretary V.K.Sasikala, are vying to take control of the party.
