"Her leadership was particularly marked by a history of effusive commitments to the welfare of the public through schemes such as free medical check-ups and a personal emphasis on primary education and nutrition."

"I extend my profound condolences to the people of Tamil Nadu and her party, AIADMK, at this time of grief and wish you all best for the state's future," Sikyong said.
