Jayalalithaa ‘amma’ dies at 68 

CHENNAI: J Jayalalithaa, the Chief Minister of Tamil Nadu
and one of India’s most powerful and popular politicians,
has died in a Chennai hospital, nearly three months after she
was admitted there. She was 68. Jayalalithaa had a cardiac
arrest on Sunday evening and was rushed back to the Intensive Care Unit or ICU. Barely two weeks ago, after doctors
and her party said she was fully recovered from a respiratory illness, she was moved from the critical care unit to a private room kitted out
with emergency equipment. Just hours before her cardiac arrest, Jayalalithaa’s
party, the AIADMK, said she would soon decide when to return home. On Monday
morning, a party spokesperson said she had improved after surgery but she died
later. Three-day mourning has been announced in Chennai.
