Was forced to. Not only this, Jayalalithaa had removed two lakh striking employees from their jobs simultaneously while taking strict action against the employees going on strike.
  • It is understandable that Jayalalithaa could have taken decisions that pushed her towards such a heavy and unpopularity, but Jayalalithaa was Jayalalithaa, she took the decision she had to take and took it in her stride. Many of her decisions were directly related to the public interest, such as for the first time in the state, the credit of opening a female police station also goes to Jayalalithaa.

  • However, Amma’s place is going to remain safe in history and the minds and minds of the people of Tamil Nadu for a long time.

Some important things in his life

Turning the pages of her life, it seems very interesting that Jayalalithaa wanted to become a lawyer since childhood, but luck brought her to the movies.

After doing about 140 films, he contested the assembly elections in politics 8 times and shone like a pole star in the sky of popularity.

It has not been that Jayalalithaa’s journey was such an easy one, but the way the DMK and AIADMK members had a scuffle in the Tamil Nadu Legislative Assembly on March 25, 1989, and forcibly co-operated with Jayalalithaa, she expressed widespread sympathy towards Jayalalithaa.Was born Then Jayalalithaa came out of the assembly with her torn sari and people strongly cursed the ruling party for this incident.

It was on this day that Jayalalithaa said that she would come to the House only after becoming the Chief Minister, otherwise she would not come! Her pledge was fulfilled in 1991 when Jayalalithaa reached an electoral pact with the Congress after Rajiv Gandhi’s assassination and won 225 out of 234 seats.

She had to struggle even after Jayalalithaa was not allowed to come near her body after MGR’s death, but she continued her political journey with great patience and that’s why AIADMK ministers, MLAs, MPs, and their supporters Also called ‘Amma’ and ‘Purachi Talai’ i.e. ‘revolutionary leader’. Certainly in Tamil Nadu politics, Jayalalithaa had made her image very big, even ahead of her mentor, the mentor MGR!
