Deleted Video: SAD MOMENT – Jayalalitha ( AMMA ) Pushed Away From MGR Funeral Car 1987
Jayalalithaa’s proximity to MGR set his coterie and wife Janaki Ramachandran to develop a bitter rivalry against Jaya. When MGR had died in December 1987, left with few supporters, Jayalalithaa was humiliated by the coterie. She has even pushed off the van in front of TV cameras.
Read about that infamous incident in Jayalalitha’s words. When Anna died, MGR was only the treasurer of the DMK, number four in the party. Now without MGR, as party propaganda secretary, I am number five.” As I was climbing the carriage, I heard shouts behind and saw MLA Dr. K.P. Ramalingam advancing menacingly towards me. Immediately, a young man in a blue shirt, who I was subsequently told was Tamil film actor Deepak, Janaki’s younger brother’s son, jumped on to the gun-carriage, hit me on the forehead and pushed me out.
The armed forces personnel tried to help me back on top of the carriage, and again Deepan pushed me, beat me, and threw me out. I was injured and bruised all over my body. I was disgusted with this rude behavior and the unparliamentary language used by Deepan and Ramalingam. I decided, much against my conscience, not to attend the funeral and came away.
