Sasikala's husband dies: Jailed AIADMK leader expected to get parole

Chennai  Bengaluru M Natarajan husband of jailed AIADMK leader VK Sasikala today died at a corporate hospital in Chennai

During emergency period, his services were terminated. When she was planning to elevate herself as the Chief Minister, Sasikala was convicted in DA case and jailed for 4 years. Vaiko said, 'Natarajan's contribution towards Tamil language and Eelam war martyrs is tremendous. He was responsible for establishing the Mullivaikkal memorial in Thanjavur district. The association developed into trust as Natarajan and his wife stood by Jayalalithaa through one of her darkest hours as a politician, following the death, in 1987, of her mentor and then Chief Minister MG Ramachandran.

"Natarajan was on ventilator support and his condition is critical", the hospital's chief operating officer, Shanmuga Priyan had said earlier last week. When Jayalalithaa toured the state in the mid-1980s, Sasikala, a video parlour owner, got the contract for video coverage of the events. He was the power centre when Jaya first became the CM.

However, Sasikala's entry into Poes Garden was in the late 80s after the death of MGR and when Jayalalithaa wanted someone to manage her household. However, Sasikala continued to stay with Jayalalithaa.

Explosion rattles FedEx facility near San Antonio
Investigators said Monday that a "serial bomber" is behind the attacks, which have killed two people and injured several others. Police are investigating after a package bomb detonated at a FedEx facility in Schertz, Texas early Tuesday, March 20, 2018.

The last rites will take place in Thanjavur. Though Natarajan fell out of Jayalalithaa's favour way back in the 1990s, he was removed from the primary membership of AIADMK in 2011.

In July 1989, when there were media reports about Natarajan allegedly manipulating Jayalalithaa, she reacted strongly.

According to AIADMK leader V Pugazhenthi, who sided with TTV Dhinakaran (Sasikala's nephew) since the party split, according to rules Sasikala can not be granted bail within six months of her last parole. The apex court has asked Sasikala to surrender as soon as possible.
