Succeeded by O Panneerselvam as the new Chief Minister of Tamil nadu, Amma Jayalalithaa died in Chennai at Apollo hospital on 5th December after a cardiac arrest and prolonged illness since September.
Controversially, her entire family was there too, including her husband Natarajan, banished years ago by Ms Jayalalithaa for acting as a proxy power centre from inside her palatial Poes Garden bungalow in an earlier term as Chief Minister.
It is learnt that one of the issues discussed was the party leadership post Jayalalithaa held. Subsequently, more ministers visited Poes Garden.
