The hunger protest is being held at all the district headquarters in Tamil Nadu, Puducherry and Karaikal. The protest began at 9 am and would conclude at 5 pm.

AIADMK Members of Parliament and legislators belonging to Panneerselvam group are also participating in the protest.

Jayalalithaa died on 5 December last year after being in the Apollo Hospitals here for around 75 days.

Members of Panneerselvam group have raised doubts about the circumstances surrounding Jayalalithaa's death.

As a caretaker, Panneerselvam had announced judicial inquiry into the death of Jayalalithaa.

The Tamil Nadu government on 6 March made public the discharge summary of Jayalalithaa and said that she got the best medical treatment.
