Articles about J Jayalalithaa
J Jayalalithaa, also known as 'Amma' by her supporters, was a six-time Chief Minister from Tamil Nadu. Born on February 24, 1948, in Mysore, Jayalalithaa started her career as an actor and was a part of over 100 films in the Tamil cinema industry. It was through films that she was associated with the then Chief Minister MG Ramachandran, founder of the All India Anna Dravida Munnetra Kazhagam (AIADMK). Jayalalithaa joined the party in 1982 and soon became an integral member. Post Ramachandran's death, she took over the party after an intense battle with his wife and, after the 1991 Assembly elections, became the Chief Minister of the state. She suffered a few roadblocks when she was arrested and charged under several corruption scams, an event that prevented her from assuming the role of Chief Minister in 2001. However, she was back in 2002 and held the post until 2006, when the DMK defeated her party in the Assembly polls. She held the post again during 2011-14 and 2015-16. Jayalalithaa passed away on December 5, 2016, at the age of 68, leaving behind a sea of ardent supporters.
