“As a leader, Jayalalithaa has won the hearts of the Northern Tamils, and is loved and respected by them. It is in her nature to say what she wants to say fearlessly and that in a cut and dry manner.  Our prayer is that she would recover fully and continue to shine in the political firmament,” Wigneswaran said.
