A 20 second video of former Chief Minister Jayalalithaa in a night dress, sitting on a hospital bed with her hair done up in a plait, sipping juice from a glass has created a stir. It was released yesterday just a day before the Dr.Radhakriahnan Nagar bypoll by disqualified MLA P.Vetrivel.
He also claimed to have more related video footage. Many AIADMK leaders said that it was a betrayal as it was not for public display. This video footage was in the possession of Sasikala’s nephew T.T.V.Dhinakaran who preserved it in order to submit it to the Commission.It somehow leaked out.
However the telecast of the clip was stopped by a note from the Returning Officer of the RK Nagar bypoll.
