“Unfortunately, you know the outcome at the end was not what everybody was looking for. And that is the hand of fate which I don’t think anyone can do anything about it”, added Reddy.
Commenting on the questions of mysteries around the death, Reddy added the one-man commission may solve the puzzle that perplexed many people within the party.
“There is an enquiry and I think that is the best thing that has been done. Let them go through the data…. I think all the mysteries will then be solved”, Reddy added. The enquiry of death of Jayalalitha has been an issue of contention between the factions led by former chief minister O Paneerselvam and present Chief Minister E Palaniswamy in the AIADMK.
Reddy added Jayalalitha was accompanied by persons during the treatment approved by herself. “So were all the doctors from all over the world, qualified nurses technicians and physiotherapists from Singapore (who could be made available).”
