The former chief minister Dr. J. Jayalalithaa is expected to make a public appearance after seven months today where she will garland the statues of AIADMK founder M. G. Ramachandran, DMK founder C. N. Annadurai and DK leader Periyar E. V. Ramaswamy. She will then proceed to Raj Bhavan and meet the Governor – K. Rosaiah.
Preparations for this event have been taking place at a feverish pace since morning. Cut-outs and banners of Jayalalithaa have been installed all along the route from her residence at Poes Garden to Raj Bhavan. At T. T. K. Road and Radhakrishnan Salai, party workers have been working around the clock to put up posters of the AIADMK chief.
The police force is out in large numbers as a huge crowd is expected to gather along the route to welcome their leader.
