Jobs Only To Those Referred By AIADMK Workers, Says Tamil Nadu Minister

Stalin claimed the Speaker of the House does not have the authority or moral right to unveil the portrait and said it was his duty to request Dhanapal not to do so. Soon after the unveiling of the portrait, the AIADMK propaganda song in praise of Jayalalithaa blared out.

A portrait of late Tamil Nadu Chief Minister J Jayalalithaa was unveiled at the Legislative Assembly hall on Monday, amid boycott by the Opposition parties.

However, the main Opposition DMK and its ally the Congress boycotted the unveiling ceremony.

Soon after Dhanapal unveiled the portrait of Jayalalithaa, an incredible work of art by former Tamil Nadu College of Fine Arts principal Mathiyazhagan, a speech delivered by the former chief-minister was broadcast and was met with thunderous applause. However, Congress party whip Vijayadharni was present at the event.

DMK's MK Stalin terming Monday as "black day" said, "This move has brought down the dignity and sanctity of the House". Already, a petition filed by our party MLA J Anbazhagan against keeping the portrait of Jayalalithaa is pending before the court. "Being a national leader admired by many senior politicians in the country, this event should have been organised in the presence of all of them, inviting all national leaders to Chennai", he said. However, with no reply forthcoming, the CM made a decision to preside over the function himself on Monday.

Charges against Jayalalithaa were abated after her death on December 5, 2016 but the court did say that the former chief minister was in league with Sasikala. The charges were confirmed by the Supreme Court after finding all the accused including her guilty of corruption charges.

Tamil Nadu's School Education Minister K A Sengottaiyan courted controversy after he said on Sunday that job opportunities would be provided to only those who are recommended by the ruling AIADMK workers.

The petitioner prayed for an interim direction to remove the portrait of Jayalalithaa from the Assembly pending disposal of the plea.

He had also said that she was regarded as a role model by the chief ministers of other states.
