On the eve of the R K Nagar byelection, the TTV Dhinakaran camp has released a video of former Tamil Nadu chief minister J Jayalalithaa in a hospitalbed. In the footage, Jayalalithaa is seen in a night dress, apparently watching TV and having a sip of juice.
The footage was released by Dhinakaran supporter and disqualified MLA P Vetrivel at the Secretariat on Wednesday.
“Lot of controversies are floated on the death of our leader. We have no option but to release the footage. We will not leave anyone who malign our leader,” Vetrivel said. He said the timing had nothing to do with the RK Nagar bypoll, which is necessitated by the death of Jayalalithaa on December 5, 2016
