Delhi chief minister Arvind Kejriwal will visit Chennai on Tuesday to pay floral tributes to Tamil Nadu chief minister J Jayalalithaa, who passed away on Monday night.
“The Delhi Chief Minister will reach Chennai around 12.30 PM and pay tributes to Jayalalithaa at Rajajji Hall,” said a senior Delhi government official.
“V sad to hear the demise of Amma. A very very popular leader. Aam admi’s leader. May her soul rest in peace,” Kejriwal tweeted.
Jayalalithaa, a popular leader who showered the poor with populist programmes, died last night at a private hospital in Chennai after battling for life for the past 75 days.
