As per report a new statue of former Chief Minister J. Jayalalitha has been brought from Andhra Pradesh to replace the one at AIADMK state headquarters that had attracted criticism as it did not seem to resemble her. Meanwhile in a State well-known for its statue politics, this is one story on statuary with a happy ending.
Accordingly the new bronze statue brought to the party headquarters at Royapettah on Tuesday, is eight feet tall and weighs about 800 kg. Furthermore this will take the place of the statue that had been done soon after her death but did not satisfy the party members as Jayalalitha's facial features had not been captured well by the sculptor. As per report a life size statue of former AIADMK supreme had been unveiled in front of the party headquarters on February 24 to commemorate her 70th birth anniversary.
Earlier the statue was erected next to that of the AIADMK founder and late Chief Minister M. G. Ramachandran, following instructions from Chief Minister Edappadi K. Palaniswami. Furthermore a stung sculptor agreed to replace it free of cost. He might not have had a choice as there were unkind comments on the social media too that the statue appeared to resemble the jailed leader Sasikala more than the former CM Jaya. Moreover in the face of severe criticism, State Fisheries Minister D. Jayakumar had promised that changes would be made to the statue after consulting party seniors.
