AIADMK men clash with DMK supporter who asked Jayalalithaa's portrait be removed from council hall
Chennai, Oct 28: Trouble erupted in Karur in central Tamil Nadu when a municipal council member, belonging to DMK,  demanded that a portrait of former chief minister J Jayalalithaa be removed from the municipal council hall, said a NDTV report.

The DMK man asked that the photograph of the former chief minister of Tamil Nadu be removed from the hall as she is no longer the head of the state. This agitated Jaya's supporters who clashed with him. Reportedly, they threw a mike at him. 

There are 48 members in Karur municipal council and just one of them belongs to the DMK.

Reportedly, the AIADMK members told the DMK man that the portrait will not be removed till the government orders to.

The 66-year-old former south Indian actress was disqualified from CM's office last month after a Bangalore court convicted her for corruption during her first term as Chief Minister.

According to the court verdict, she spent three weeks in jail before the Supreme Court granted her bail.

The verdict had led to a string of protests in Bangalore and Tamil Nadu. Reportedly, the verdict led to the suicide of several AIADMK supporters. Many died of heart attack too. Many public buses were set ablaze and buildings were vandalized.

While allowing bail, the supreme court asked Jayalalithaa to ensure that her loyal party men respect law and order.  

Jaya's loyalist O Panneerselvam replaced her as chief minister. At the swearing in ceremony, Selvam and other ministers were seen weeping.
