She was physically pushed off from the MGR dead body van in front of all the media.
- On March 25 in the year 1989, it was a bitter incident for Jayalalitha. This incident is enough to show that the lady was up against.Jayalalitha was the opposition leader and the DMK leader Karunanidhi was CM then. Angered DMK leaders took into physical violence, “My saree was pulled and torn”.
- In the year 1979, when Indra Gandhi visited the Tamil Nadu Karunanidhi’s DMK Black Flag demonstration, this turned to be violence. When Jayalalitha asked the injured Indira Gandhi about the bloody injuries, Karunanidhi obscenely reported that a could bleed for the other reasons.
