Twist in Tamil Nadu story after a man comes forward and claims that he is the son of late CM Jayalalithaa. The man named Krishnamurthy filed a complaint with the chief secretary of the state and said he is the only son of Jayalalithaa and his mother was killed.
According to India Today, Krishnamurthy, a resident of Erode alleged he stayed at Jaya’s friend Vanithaman’s house with his adopted parents. He stated that on September 14th he visited Jayalalithaa at her Poes Garden residence and stayed there for four days.
He also accused Sasikala of killing Jayalalithaa. Krishnamurthy said, “My mother wanted to introduce me as her son to the world and knowing this an argument broke out between her and Sasikala. She pushed my mother down the stairs on 22nd September and killed her.”
The man said he didn’t say this before as he feared for his life and claimed he is the rightful successor of his “mother’s” properties.
He also wrote a letter to social activist Traffic Ramaswamy who had suggested him to file the complaint.
This is not the first time someone claims to Jayalalithaa’s heir. Earlier, after the death of the former Tamil Nadu CM, a woman Priya Laxmi claimed herself the daughter of M.G. Ramachandran and Jayalalithaa. But police investigated and considered it as a hoax and she was arrested for fraudulence.
Jayalalithaa has admitted to the hospital on 22nd September after suffering high fever and dehydration. She died on 5th December after being in the hospital for 72 days. After her death, Tamil Nadu witnessed enough political drama.
The former Tamil Nadu Assembly speaker PH Pandian claimed the late CM was admitted to the Apollo Hospital after someone pushed her down at the Poes Garden residence.
Her death even triggered split in the AIADMK. One faction supporting former chief minister O Pannerselvam and the other supporting chief minister E Palaniswamy.
Now the new addition is Krishnamurthy. Let’s see what will happen next. Time will tell whether his story is real or just a hoax like Priya Laxmi.
