MADURAI: At the public meeting to celebrate the birth centenary of former Chief Minister M G Ramachandran, organised by the supporters of the deputy general secretary of the AIADMK, TTV Dhinakaran, at Melur in Madurai on Monday evening, Dhinakaran urged the government to order a judicial probe into the death of former Chief Minister J Jayalalithaa.

There was a good response for the public meeting, with thousands of party cadres from different parts of the state participating in it. Since it was the first public meeting in which Dhinakaran was participating, a grand stage that looked like the AIADMK party headquarters was put up.

Without mentioning the name of O Panneerselvam, Dhinakaran said that a few people were speaking about to bring a judicial probe into the death of Jayalalithaa. “We do not fear a judicial probe, as those people were in power at that time. They would be the first to be investigated. Due to this reason the government should order a judicial probe,” he said.

Dhinakaran said that in spite of several hurdles, party cadres from different parts of the state participated in the meeting at Melur. He stressed that the meeting was organised to celebrate the birth centenary of MGR and not with the intention of dissolving the government.

Stating that he had been closely working with Jayalalithaa for several years, Dhinakaran said that nearly 80 percent of the MLAs and ministers who are now in power were identified by him. He further said that he did not wish to come to power. “I only care for the party’s welfare. If the party’s general secretary V K Sasikala had wanted, she could have made me or anyone in my family the CM. The people in power are blinded by that power.”
