Minister for Foreign Affairs Dr Vivian Balakrishnan will be visiting Tamil Nadu, India, today (6 Dec) to pay his respects to the late Chief Minister of Tamil Nadu, Her Excellency J Jayalalithaa in Chennai. A press release from the Ministry of Foreign Affairs said that the Minister will be accompanied by officials from the Ministry of Foreign Affairs.

J Jayalalitha died on Monday of cardiac arrest. She was 68. The Chief Minister of Tamil Nadu state was undergoing nearly three months at a Chennai hospital before she breathed her last at 11.30pm yesterday.

Fondly referred to as ‘Puratchi Thalaivi’ (revolutionary leader) and ‘Amma’ (mother) by her supporters and well-wishers, Madam Jayalalithaa rose to occupy the highest office in the State following a successful career in the Tamil Nadu cine field.

She served five terms as the Chief Minister of Tamil Nadu, for over fourteen years between 1991 and 2016.
