PM Modi will place a wreath and pay tributes to Ms Jayalalithaa at Rajaji Hall.
In a series of tweets last night, the Prime Minister, who enjoyed a good personal equation with the late leader, had said that he was “deeply saddened at the passing away of Selvi Jayalalithaa. Her demise has left a huge void in Indian politics.”
Ms Jayalalithaa, a popular leader who showered the poor with populist programmes, died late on Monday night at a private hospital in Chennai after a prolonged lung infection followed by a cardiac arrest. She had been in hospital for 75 days.
The 68-year-old leader had suffered a massive cardiac arrest on Sunday evening.
