Ms Jayalalithaa was fond of the Tamil language and the Tamil people. She was concerned of their future. Ms Jayalalithaa achieved a lot in improving the conditions of the people of Tamil Nadu, Justice Wigneswaran said.

She was keen that the resettlement of Tamils should take place in a secure manner in the North-East and was acting with a commitment that Tamils could govern themselves in their own areas, he further said in his message of condolence.

The untimely demise of Tamil Nadu Chief Minister has come while the NPC Chief Minister was awaiting for her recovery to meet her in person. A meeting was to take place between the two chief ministers on the invitation extended by Ms Jayalalithaa, Justice Wigneswaran further said.

Ms Jayalalithaa courageously faced the challenges before her, particularly in the male-dominated theatre of politics and evolved as the iron lady of Tamil Nadu, he further said while paying tribute to Ms Jayalalithaa.
