organised by the Jain International Organisation in Mumbai,It was the summer of 2001 It offered me a rare chance to hear them speak to the same audience one after another and contrast their campaign tropes.Karunanidhi got down from a car and climbed onto a makeshift dais and took the mike He spoke about what his government had done in the five years of his rule Interspersed in his serious rhetoric on government policy was his inimitable wit that sent the crowd into raptures Some laughed so much they had tears in their eyes The same listeners were tearful even when Jayalalithaa spoke But those were tears of empathy or sympathy She was not endowed with the great oratory skills of Karunanidhi But as she always did she struck an emotional chord with the crowd as she spoke with folded hands from her campaign vehicle promising what she would do if voted back to power She won that election With the image of a lonely woman wronged by both friends and foes with a series of welfare measures a flood of freebies which she had delivered in the past and promised in future Jayalalithaa has developed a level of emotional connect with people that few Indian leaders have Neither a Mulayam Singh Yadav nor Mayawati nor Mamata Banerjee nor Nitish Kumar nor Naveen Patnaik and not even Chandrababu Naidu can boast such a psychological bond with supporters But then Tamil Nadu is also a state where emotions overtake everything even allegations of large-scale corruption that marked her reign Crowds throng to get a final glimpse of Jayalalithaa in Chennai Image courtesy: News Today It was this direct emotional bond with people that had in the first place helped her take charge of the party some time after the death of her leader and mentor MG Ramachandran (MGR) in 1987 and become the chief minister for the first time in 1991 Draupadi versus Duryodhana Ever since some DMK members made the terrible mistake of assaulting her and pulling at her sari in the state Assembly in 1989 she has never failed to present herself as a damsel in distress In the minds of many of her supporters especially women the image of Jayalalithaa in a crumpled sari with hair dishevelled and eyes filled with tears stays in some form or the other She completed the effect by calling Karunanidhi a Duryodhana who had encouraged Dushasanas to pull at her pallu Clearly that Mahabharat-like episode was one of the triggers that transformed her into a determined and tough — even if vengeful — politician intent on destroying her enemies and befriending voters at the same time She sought the support of the people and she got it in ample measure Of the six elections to the state Assembly since 1991 she has won four (with two more wins coming in by-elections) Supporters of Amma gather in Chennai to pay their last respects Image courtesy: News Today A lonely woman Jayalalithaa considered herself — and was deemed by her supporters — to be a loner a perception that only added to her emotional appeal She had lost her father at age two when the family lived in Karnataka’s Mysore district She was even disappointed with her mother who as she later wrote in a magazine had forced her to give up studies and move to Chennai to act in films Having severed her links with most of her family members childhood friends and later even with her one-time political allies she trusted nobody At some point she was critical of even her mentor MGR The only person to whom Jayalalithaa remained loyal and who was loyal to her all through was Sasikala Natarajan the wife of a former government public relations officer An IAS officer introduced Sasikala to Jayalalithaa in 1983 when she was AIADMK’s propaganda secretary and MGR was still the chief minister Sasikala moved into Jayalalithaa’s official residence when she became the chief minister in 1991 and has remained her close friend except for two brief intervals of separation Allegations that Sasikala misused her proximity to Jayalalithaa made no impact on their friendship Supporters gather outside Rajaji Hall to get one last glimpse at Jayalalithaa Image courtesy: News Today Jayalalithaa distanced herself from Sasikala once in 1996 after the party’s election defeat but made up with her three months later And in 2011 the chief minister expelled her friend from the party and her house but took her back again three months later Besides Sasikala she had no other significant allies All this only made Jayalalithaa look to her supporters as a woman who was deserted by friends though often it was the other way round And she looked like one who needed love and support Even in running her administration she was also a loner She usually took most of her decisions in consultation with a handful of trusted bureaucrats but not with her own party leaders Add to all this the welfare schemes and the freebies she offered to people Topping that list are the low-cost “Amma” canteens Her election promises include supply of free mobile phones to ration-card holders free laptops to Class X and XII students waiver of farm loans 100 free electricity units every two months assistance to fishermen and goats and cows for rural families Besides the stand she took on the Cauvery dispute with Karnataka during her six terms as chief minister was much more belligerent than that of Karunanidhi and whether the farmers got the water or not she got their goodwill The scams during her time as the chief minister Come again The author tweets @sprasadindia
