Why would we lie': AIADMK claims nothing to hide on Jaya's death

'Everything is totally transparent. We have nothing to hide, we will file our reply in the court,' the party said.

Chennai: Reacting to Madras High Court’s observations over late Chief Minister J Jayalalithaa’s death, AIADMK on Thursday reaffirmed that the party had nothing to hide, and wondered why the party would keep up a lie for 75 days.

Speaking to the media, AIADMK spokesperson CR Saraswati said, “Everything is totally transparent. We have nothing to hide. We will file our reply in the court.”

“Doctors from across the world were flown in to treat Jayalalithaa. Why would we keep up the lie for 75 days,” the party was quoted as saying by NDTV.

In a twist on the late AIADMK leader’s death, Madras High Court on Thursday raised questions, wondering why the he chief minister’s body could not be exhumed.

Hearing a petition on Jaya’s death, Justice Vaidyalingam said, “Media has raised a lot of doubts and personally I also have doubts on Jayalalithaa's death. When she was admitted in hospital, it was said that she was on proper diet. At least after her death, truth should be revealed.”

Justice Vaidyalingam also sought a detailed report on the same.

Jayalalithaa had passed away on December 5 and was buried with full state honours at MGR Memorial, Marina Beach.

On September 22, Jayalalithaa was rushed to Apollo hospital due to dehydration and fever by Sasikala and her husband M. Natarajan. No one knows how she was affected by dehydration. Thereafter, Jayalalithaa was kept in the hospital under suspicious circumstances for 75 days.

Almost all political leaders, including Governors of Tamil Nadu and Kerala, went to the hospital to meet her. None of the dignitaries were allowed to enter into the ward where she was undergoing ‘treatment’. Sasikala, her husband, her sister in law, I. Ilavarasi, Chief Minister O. Panneerselvam, Chief Secretary, P. Rama Mohan Rao and other authorities entered into a conspiracy with Chairman, Apollo Hospital, Dr Prathap C. Reddy.

Jayalalithaa possessed a lot of properties including liquid assets worth many crores.
