Arumugasamy Commission Report PDF – Introduction
1.1. Selvi J. Jayalalithaa joined the AIADMK Party in 1982 and was elevated as Party‟s “Propaganda Secretary”, when Dr M.G. Ramachandran was the Chief Minister of Tamil Nadu. After his demise, there were two factions in the AIADMK and thereafter they merged into one.
She was elected unanimously as the General Secretary and won the Tamil Nadu Assembly Elections in the year 1991 and became Chief Minister of Tamil Nadu. She was one of the most popular and powerful Political leaders in South Indian Politics, holding the post of General Secretary of the AIADMK party for more than 25 years and was the Chief Minister of the State of Tamil Nadu for three terms.
She was affectionately called “Puratchi Thalaivi AMMA” (Revolutionary Leader and Mother) by her party cadres. A leading actor of the yesteryears in Cine-Industry in South India, she achieved lots of laurels as well as tribulations in her public life.
1.2. She lost the 1996 Elections and thereafter, the Vigilance and Anti-Corruption Department filed cases against her. During the pendency of the trial, she came to power again in 2001. During the trial, the witnesses examined already were recalled and they turned hostile. Prof.K.Anbazhagan, Treasurer and former Minister of D.M.K., filed an application before the Hon’ble Supreme Court, mentioning the situation and the case was transferred to Bengaluru Special Court and it ended in conviction.
Thereafter, an appeal was allowed by the Karnataka High Court, against which the matter was taken to the Hon’ble Supreme Court and during the pendency, she passed away and the matter stood abated against her.
1.3. On 22.09.2016, she was hospitalized and, after a meek fight for more than 10 weeks, unfortunately, she breathed her last on 05.12.2016. The circumstances under which she was hospitalised and died in the hospital became a subject of public debate and doubts were raised in several quarters over her mysterious death.
There was a demand upon the Government to constitute a Commission of Inquiry to unearth the truth. The Government eventually decided to constitute a Commission of Inquiry under the Commissions of Inquiry Act, of 1952 and that is how this Commission came into being.
