Chennai, March 8: The political slugfest over Amma’s death ceases to rest as Tamil Nadu’s former Chief Minister O Panneerselvam and his followers have begun a one-day fast on Wednesday.

The OPS clan is protesting at all the district headquarters of Tamil Nadu, Puducherry and Karaikal for demanding a judicial inquiry into the death of former Chief Minister J. Jayalalithaa.

The hunger strike which started at 9 am would conclude at 5 pm.

Certain AIADMK MPs (Members of Parliament) and legislators who support Panneerselvam are also participating in the protest.

Jayalalithaa died on December 5 last year after being in the Apollo Hospitals here for around 75 days. Members of Panneerselvam group have raised doubts about the circumstances surrounding Jayalalithaa’s death.

As a caretaker, Panneerselvam had announced judicial inquiry into the death of Jayalalithaa.

The Tamil Nadu government on March 6 made public the discharge summary of Jayalalithaa and said that she got the best medical treatment.
