Former Tamil Nadu Chief Minister J Jayalalitha, Amma being buried with full state honours next to her mentor MGR  at MGR Memorial on the Marina Beach in Chennai this evening.

The body was taken from Rajaji Hall in Triplicane at around 4.30 p.m. in a flower-decked cortege. Her mortal remains were flanked by her close aide Sasikalaa Natarajan and her family members on one side and her successor Panneerselvam and other party leaders on the other.

Around 10,000 police and army personnel guarded the procession as it moved towards Marina, a little less than two kilometres away, where she was laid to rest. Before her coffin was lowered into a freshly dug pit at around 6.00 p.m, several leaders, including Governor Vidyasagar Rao, Congress leaders Rahul Gandhi and Ghulam Nabi Azad, and Union ministers Venkaiah Naidu and Pon Radhakrishnan paid their tributes.

Paying tributes to late Chief Minister J Jayalalithaa, Congress vice president Rahul Gandhi today said, “I would like to offer my condolences to the people of Tamil Nadu. Jayalalithaa ji was a great leader. She was not only a great leader of Tamil Nadu, she was a leader of this country” .
