Over 25,000 calendars for 2017 that were supposed to carry deceased former chief minister of Tamil Nadu Jayalalithaa's photo have been now replaced by her aide, Sasikala Natarajan's, image, reported The Hindu. According to the report, these calendars, ordered by state politicians, were ordered in late November and early December, while the former CM was still alive.
"The Chief Minister passed away on December 5 and the very next day morning we started getting 'stop printing' calls," an unnamed printer told the newspaper. "The leaders have told us that they would come back to us with some changes."
These politicians--councillors and former and present MLAs--have reportedly now requested for the Jayalalithaa photos to be replaced with "bold" images of Sasikala, who was made AIADMK's general secretary on Thursday, a post Jayalalithaa had occupied since her mentor MG Ramachandran's death in 1987.
While it is still unclear if she will be made CM next, local politicians are taking no chances.
