The assembly elections in Tamil Nadu clearly revolve around one person – Jayalalithaa.
The AIDMK’s campaign is all about her story while the DMK campaign is centered around destabilising her. The campaign in Tamil Nadu has been a high-voltage one with Jayalalithaa fighting for a comeback and the ailing DMK patriarch fighting for relevance.
Jayalalithaa has always had a colourful and extravagant life. She has always acknowledged MGR’s role in mentoring her towards politics.
The question now is, will she be able to do an encore in what could be the last political battle between her and her aging arch rival?
