We all lied about Jaya's health condition says TN Minister
C. Sreenivasan, speaking at public event on Friday said that we all lied then so that the party's secret does not get leaked. He also said it was only V.K. Sasikala who used to meet Jayalalithaa. Reacting to the charge, T.T.V.Dinakaran, nephew of Sasikala, said that after October 1, 2016 even Sasikala was not allowed inside Jayalalithaa's room. Jayalalithaa later died in the hospital on December 5.
Speaking at a public meeting in Madurai, around 500 km from here, on Friday night Sreenivasan said: "We would have told lies that she (Jayalalithaa) had idlis and people met her. The truth is that nobody saw her." Sreenivasan said he is seeking apology from the people now for "those lies".
According to him, everyone in the government and in the ruling AIADMK party "lied about the people" who had met Jayalalithaa in Apollo Hospital, where she was admitted on September 22 last year.
Sreenivasan said even the national leaders used to sit in Apollo Hospitals Chief Pratap Reddy's room and the AIADMK Ministers would also be seated in that room.
"We all lied then so that the party's secret does not get leaked," Sreenivasan said.
He said nobody met Jayalalithaa in her hospital room.
She was admitted to Apollo on the night of September 22 and died in the hospital on December 5.
During the period of stay, the information from the government and the hospital about her health condition was scarce.
Most of the communication about her health condition stated that she was on the road to recovery and was doing well.
He said it was only V.K. Sasikala - a close aide of Jayalalithaa for several years - who used to meet Jayalalithaa.
Reacting to the charge, T.T.V.Dinakaran, nephew of Sasikala, said after October 1, 2016 even Sasikala was not allowed inside Jayalalithaa's room.
He said on the instruction of doctors Sasikala would go inside Jayalalithaa's room for two minutes.
Tamil Nadu Chief Minister K. Palaniswami had announced the government's decision to set up an inquiry commission to be headed by a retired High Court judge to go into the death of Jayalalithaa.
Ever since Jayalalithaa's death, there have been hints of foul play over her death, with critics pointing fingers at the now jailed Sasikala.
