Jayalalithaa’s closest aide, Sasikala Natarajan, on Sunday named a new born baby girl of an AIADMK cadre as Jayalalithaa in memory of former chief minister of Tamil Nadu.
Ms Natarajan, called ‘Chinamma’ by her party members, named the child at the Poes Garden residence of Jayalalithaa, where she continues to live.
Sasikala Natarajan, is set to replace Jayalalithaa as the chief of her party, the AIADMK, after her party cadres urged her to take the popular leader’s place.
Jayalalithaa died on 5 December in Chennai after being hospitalised over two months.
